The TRF one (42186) is for buggy adjusters.
The 53858 is for your TC adjusters.
Excellent tool!

Thanks guys. Definately an adjuster tool in my next shopping cart. It's going to save lots of swearing at the kitchen table.

I don't think anyone is selling anything other than the kits yet.

Maybe the case is warped. Maybe he should just buy a new diff.

The gears break when the backlash is set wrong or when the diff shims cone. Tamiya makes steel gears now and TDX make 0.3mm shims with a larger outer diameter than the stock shims. This will fix his diff.

They don't, different thread.
Plastic requires bigger threads.
