Ok guys....Been away for a while....Waiting on parts and such but here's the latest problem. I got the gear diff....it came with these blades that go on the driveshafts and one broke. What can I buy to replace these ones because the drive shaft pops out now with the gear diff with this one missing. Better driveshafts out there??? Or can I get some new ones to replace these that aren't total SHITE. They broke when I put them on and had to super glue them....they don't flex enough to get around the pins on the drive shaft.....and then once they get stretched far enough to get around them....they snapped lol....

Hopefully someone knows what I'm talking about

If the drive shafts are straight and not messed up, I'd leave them alone! Why spend money on something that is okay!
Tamiya sells them also, I just got them, I'll see if I can dig up the number for them.
I know they're not expensive either. Let me look around and see what I can dig up

Ok that sounds good. I like saving money....who doesn't lol I love upgrading it tho. Something about making these better whether it's tires or a diff and motor is just so satisfying when you drive it.

I agree with you 100%
After a bunch of work we finally got Golddusts and my Mini dialed in
So we're now ready for the TCS at Jackson as well as the Mini Maddness there too!!!
Just need more practice making laps on the track to really be ready to have fun!!!

Actually I bounce between the gear diff and the 3 racing ball diff.
I haven't had too much luck with setting up the ball diffs lately but I seemed
to have found the secret for the gear diff setups that is making my car run!!!
I was actually working on my diff one night and the stupid thing took
off like a rocket and couldn't find it after looking like a total lunatic crawling
around the ready room on the floor!!! So they do fit fine and I haven't broken
one yet! You're actually the first one I have heard of that broke one!

Even with the plastic blades, the outdrives on the 3Racing diff start to wear out. I replaced my outdrives with the hardened version which doesn't require blades. It's a much better and more durable design. I also use the 3racing drive shafts.
