But every time I build them they seem a bit clicky, and are never as smooth as my Tamiya TRF diff was.

Any tips?
I was having the same problem until I put different thrust balls in too. Now my diff is as smooth as any other diff I've ever felt!

You have a bad ball in the thrust or the diff. It's not uncommon to get a bad ball occassionally. I would say 1 out of every 20 sets of new balls or thrust bearings I use are bad. (carbide not ceramic)

Quick note- I started using ceramic balls from Avid Racing before Xray came out with their own ceramic balls. I can honestly say I couldn't be any happier with them. Smooooooooth as silk and haven't rebuilt my diff in 4 months.

Another quick tip- don't throw away those Xray thrust bearings!! The brass ball spacer is awesome. Just order new ceramic thrust balls, take your 1.5mm driver and pop the original balls out, then put the new ceramics in place. Best thrust money can buy and waaay cheaper than buying a complete ceramic thrust brg set.

Word is they are 1mm shorter than kit Xray parts, When this was done by Tamiya and Yokomo their cars were immediately much more competitive, fingers crossed similar results with these guys.

I also grabbed one of their top decks, it seems quite a bit more torsionally flexy in the rear end, should be good for lower traction surfaces, and for high traction to prevent traction rolling.

No one has an opinion?

Bradd, you could have used 007 arms (with slight mods) plus it would give you two lower shock mount holes..

I have not done this myself, but I heard that a LOSI thrust bearing would work in place of a stock piece. Should be cheaper price wise.
