I always use new diff plates and new diff balls (1/8") every time. The grittiness is of course gone each time I build a new diff. But there is a kind of unsmooth feel to it each time. I just measured the depth of the balls' housing in the diff gear slots with a caliper.

To my surprise the depth is a little bit over 1/8". That is, the slots are deeper than the balls. I suspect that the diff plates are not fully riding on the balls and could lead to the problem I'm experiencing. I've rebuilt diffs on other cars many times. The Barracuda rear diff is just not as smooth as others. Has anyone had my problems?
I know what your talking about with the tolorance with the gear housing the diff ball's and it is very close..but I have 3 "CUDA's" and over 100 Runs on each of them.... but never have had any problems with fitment or wearing down of the diff plates .. but I do use ceramic diff balls on all of them and nitrate treated diff rings' ( a hook up that I have on my other hobby hooks me up with the service)

Default Barracuda 1/12 mini

Looks Like SpeedWay PAL is making a 1/12 scale PAL Barracuda..!!!!! FOr all o fou guys that Like the Micro/Mini's .. the pic's that are in the New R/C worl magaizine are simply awesom!!! Yokomo also came out with a YMP version of there MR-4tc but the Yokomo only holds 4 cells the Barracuda holds 6!!! Looks like it will be a fun thing to have
I'll see if I can get any pic's up if my internet still works in the next week... (being out at sea on aboat sucks! )



-Dave

JDM: At a first glance, I don't know it's a 1/12 touring car!! Really don't know whether this will create a 1/12 touring trend...
