Why does it come with diff/thrust balls, when the 6.1 comes with a gear diff?

That's a huge amount of money to spend on bearings....

heh

When drive modified I just need normal bearing
Cheap ones, change each event.

Forget ceramics, they will not give you 0.1sec per lap, 0.1sec per lap give more training and learning how to set car

Regards!

If you look close there is a specific flat area by the outer pin that is where you should measure droop. I don't have any arms around right now or I would photo it.

there has been no change in the bulkheads so there is no reason it shouldn't fit

Anyone got any tips for freeing up the droop screws? Mine are super tight. It makes adjusting droop a bit of a chore. It flings the car off the blocks.
