For those who don't kind a bit of.wrk you may be jnterested to know that the exceed light weight internals rorba 733 diff can be made to fit into a 411 diff. I forgot to weigh it before I began but with light weight internals and 1200 oil the diff weighs in at 22g. A new diff in the packet plus the extra shaft and 2 bevels (without oil) weighs in at 32g. It takes a bit of work to the out drives and mounting the main diff housing side main gear but when you get it together it feels better than the steel gears. I don't think the gears are a perfect fit so I think I need to do.some.more work on shimming but it does.go together.

Keep in mind that this gearset is not cheap for a few.plastic parts and alloy shafts.

Many Thanks Dragon,

Isn't the 733 Big bevel gears are using pin instead of Hex shape to lock on the outdrive?

Do you have the part no?

Yep thats what I was told too... The main gears are pin driven rather than hex/bolt. You have to cut down one of the pins a bit as well to fit it together...

Default setting pinion mesh.

i see some guys are having problems. it is really dependant of what class or motor you are running. i am using the serpent 84T spur and a 19-20 T pinion, as i am running 3.5T Mod. everything is just easy. 2 motor screws can be accessed easily, and motor is out inseconds with out removing anything else.
i also run speed passion, so a motor change doesnt incurr any soldering either.
i just love how everything is. i wouldnt have it any other way.
but stock....... different story. remove spur, and top deck, ouch........

Please, can you help me, it's just to know if that part is fittable in my own car.

Thanks

RE XRAY spurs come as low as 64 tooth and with the BIG hole for motor removal, no need to take the top deck off!



Common sizes available.

Cheers

i now use the xray spurs to but you can also use the other spurs. i have been using a 70 spur i dont remove the top deck at all when i put my stock motor in just split the 2 peice mount a few more screws but can be done with very little effort if you dont have the xray spurs..
