Thanks for the replies guys, I got a lead on a shop that had both SpecR and Yokomo. Just waiting for confirmation that they for sure had them in stock.

the spec-r gear diff feels rough until you run it. it will smooth out after the first one or two runs.

in 1/8th offroad, we shim the planetary gears and put it together until it feels right. The gasket's thickness plays a part too

For me I need to polish the back side of the gears to reduce the thickness (as told in the instruction sheet) and not to tighten the screws too much.....

I am getting a gear-diff for my Xray T2 '009 (on carpet) (SPR009-XR). Is the so-called X Ring included with the newer gear-diffs?

The site also says: "*** For XRay T3, 50mm rear universal swing shaft should be required. ". But what about T2 '009? Do I need 50mm driveshafts for that also?

And what should I start out with? 1000cst?

yes, u will need the shorter 50mm shafts, otherwise it will bind with the diff cup. Start with 2000 oil.

The gear diff on asphalt is much easier to get used to. I think we are all looking for the magic setup on carpet...
Yea, I think we would all like that magic setup for rubber tires on carpet =-)
I do tend to throw the car into the turns, break late and hard but that's what works for me. I'll hold onto it till next summer and give it a go on the black top.

Why don't u try slow in and fast out. It will be quicker regardless of ball or gear diff.

How many teeth is in your T2R diff? 34t or 38t? There are diffs that fit both. The 34t diff says its for the Atomic vm2 but it is exactly what an xray with 34t needs. I have an xray ball diff out of a T2'008 in my vm2

I should have known that, before I went out and bought a 38T conversion kit for my T2 '009
