Anyone know if it will come with titanium camber and steering rods? Would be willing to pay a little more if it did.

Most of the times we would still use the balldif over the geardif while the current balldif don't seems to have the durability in the mod class. We definitely need a new designed balldif that could lasts awhile.

Default Anyone know what was changed on the new ball diff?

Bigger rings and larger ball count or what? External ball diff adjustment is what they need. After having external diffs adjustments it's hard to go back.

Tamiya ball diffs are externally adjustable.
