Not sure if they're still in stock, but Tamiya USA was selling the red bits at a good discount a few weeks ago. I picked some up for the TRF shocks I put on the TOP car. They even had the red alum retainer that's impossible to find in blue these days.

What are you trying to achieve with a slipper instead of a diff?

think they are using the slipper pads in the diff and leaving out the diff balls.
The diff plates will rub against the slipper pads.

I'm guessing you are using it in the front of the car, not the rear, correct?
