It would be nice to see an opened one.

Could you disassemble one unit and post some pics?

It seems that this gear diff been out for a while:

http://redirectingat.com/?id=42X1295...g-car-317.html

None of the pics I found show the insides. You need the one way pulley with this one. Maybe this is a different one.

I thought that TOP was making one?

No, it's all the same diff, first pics were posted ages ago now, by the looks of it Top gave out some test samples for use and abuse, some of those people posted some teaser shots, and everyone else has been waiting ever since.

I'd not be surprised if early stock sells 'very' quickly, lots of people want them, but yes the "stock spec" does make you go hmm.

Yup, it certainly looks like a "light weight" alright. Should be OK for 17.5 and maybe 13.5. It's worth a try ....hey for 20 bucks there isn't much to lose. I managed to get mine in time. Sorry if I scooped anyone!

so much for the gear diff, but how is the 20T Alu centre pulley coming along???? is it really going to be out or just another 1 of those rumors floating.... I sure hope top will produce them cause it has caused me a few good races where the plastic ones where melted the side plate came off. Still I love the car very much over my Ex- Xray

Default 6 Cell Foam Chassis

Can anyone confirm if the new superstiff lipo chassis would be anywhere near as stiff as my 3mm 6 cell foam chassis? I would like to get the new chassis but we still run foam tires so I really need it as stiff as possible. Also enough with the gear diffs!

I have one of the new super stiff lipo chassis's. It is stiffer then the 6 cell foam chassis by a long shot.

nope got it for rubber on carpet but it might be a touch to stiff for that. I will probably be running a stiff lipo chassis with a foam top deck. I do have 2 cars so I will try that chassis as well when the season starts up.

the new Stiff lipo would be a better choice for Rubber tire carpet racing. I think the Super stiff is for foam carpet.
