What type of diff balls are you guys running in the RDX for mod?

Thanks in advance,

I think you can get them in bulk from boca. I just run the stock diff balls that come with the car....... diffs in mod with foams just get killed anyways. I just clean them more often.

Thanks all. I think i build a good diff-but I hate building them. Mostly because I hate tearing a car apart to get the diffs out. I am looking for longevity!!!

I agree about iit being a pain to rip diffs out of some of these touring cars. The longer you can make them last the better.

hey ray, im trying the ceramic balls in the diffs right now. So far they feel just as smooth as the steel ones, but theres no "grittyness" at all when the diff is rotated 360 degress. I know sometimes with steel, theres a notch or two, and im hoping these ceramic balls will stay smoother longer.

I have been running the ceramic balls now for over 2 months with out the first rebuild. The diff is still butter smooth. I have been able to run my diff alittle tighter also.

Hope this helps

I never even put the steel diff balls in the diff. I automatically switch to the Ceramic. Like imprsme said, I have a TON of runs on my diffs and they are still smooth as glass. I think I built mine for the Reedy Race and haven't rebuilt it yet, and thats with modified.

I'll have to check back orders. We have those mounts in stock. Tell George to give us a call to double check.

I placed a really small order early this week. I was surprised to see my stuff ship so quickly and have shipping info with it. If this is any indication of their service I'm impressed.

We always try to ship the same day........... depending on when the order is received.

Well I can safely say that it was my first order but not my last. Great customer service. Guess that is just one reason shy the RDX is getting to be so popular.
