Default I need 2 links for Tamiya m03 parts

I've been trying to find a One Way Differential for a Tamiya mini M03. When I look them up for instance on RCMart.com they never say that they will work for the M03--but I know one of them will.

Does anyone know the Tamiya part number for this OR can you give me a link?

Also, Which are the best high performance motors for the Tamiya M03? Is there a part number or link?

Thanks in advance.

I can't see a one way working on a mini, as they are 2wd, which will leave you with no brakes.

Who need brakes!

Actually you are correct but everyone is using them and seems to like them.

true, I guess disabling brakes on a mini means you don't accidentally lose speed by tapping the brakes.

You're waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better off ignoring everyone else and running a ball diff. One-ways for Minis are not a good idea.
Definitely no brakes for a start. A well set-up ball diff will drive better and have none of the disadvantages.
