you need tamiya wheels with this diff set.they are different.
and also aluminium knukles for front.

I never bend the hubs. but I was bend an optional aluminium rear axle =)

IMHO the newer foam diff does not operate smoothly. I dont think the correct thrust system is included. For 103 wheels it just does not spin smoothly in regards to the diff. I still prefer the rubber tire diff- it's designed just like associated pan cars. Very smooth even when really tightened down.
I would just replace your bent part for now.

Has anyone figured out a good thrust system for the foam axle diff? When I tighten mine down the diff action starts to bind up unlike the regular rubber tire diff... I've tried using the option Tamiya F103 thrust bearing and it still is bound up.

Well I got the new diff in and got it all installed when I realized what you were saying about the different wheels needed. I knew that different wheels would be needed, but I just assumed this was in reference to the diameter of the inside of the wheels not being enough. So can someone post the exact part number for the wheels needed? Thanks

thanks,
yeah, most companies include a 90mm wire, which is only good in TC's. Pan cars need a much longer sensor cable

Dynamite made one that is 2200 that I'm trying out. A few mm wider so you have to lengthen the bolt down holes a little on the mini battery mount. Battery is not as punchy but it gives you a bit more run time.

Get the 150mm TQ racing wires. The best for pan cars.

i noticed the 2200 mah is only 20c. im just concerned that i will lose juice in the end with a 1950...

I ordered a 120mm one from hobbywing. Through some research its the same as the LRP sensored cable, just rebadged. and it is $2 (plus $3 shipping) instead of $10 plus the $3 shipping.
i may order that cable just to be on the safe side
