I haven`t 501x, so can you tell me how to calculate IR when you use 35t front and 36t rear pulleys?

It`s easy when you use that normal combination 36/16 like rampal show earlier..

Quality, i think.

Those tungsten carbide balls last much longer than kit standard ones.

I'm thinking that the custom diff is best suited for low turn modified motors. I've used the stock 36 tooth wide pitch pulley diff with diff covers for quite a while on my TA05R and haven't had reliability issues; I use a Novak GTB with a 13.5 Pro in that car. However, when I ran the same car with my Novak 5.5R, after about 7-8 battery packs, I noticed that the same diff was quickly beginning to lose its smoothness. I wonder if the extra durability of the custom diff is worth the cost of the added weight on the drive train with the use of the 13.5 Pro or the 10.5 Pro in my TA05MS or TA05R.

I have used ceramic balls (general 3mm) - they are less than 10EUR/set (including shipping) from WalaWala-shop @ eBay and last almost forever , especially when used with dustcover stickers...

GUYS, just tried doing the 16 balls diff with a 36t diff pulley (not the wide pitch version) but it seems to be not smooth...Is it really like this or should it be like a normal ball diff that we assemble out of the box??? I followed the procedures like what it says but still, no smoothness when I turn the other side of the wheel... Anyone tried this already???
