Looks to me like that one needs cleaned! I see the black ring of gunk between the spur gear and diff ring and teeth full of dirt.

I just got the assembly so I can't speak for durability, but with my diff set so it doesn't slip it feels more free by spinning the wheel. Almost like it's too loose.

I like it.

take care

Default received, ok then?

John, glad to see that it arrived ok. Yea, you are right, I did not build a new diff to take a picture of it. I just pulled the axle right out of the car and snapped away. From a marketing stand point, maybe not the way to go. In a way, you could say that I race what I sell and sell what I race. But I will leave the dirt up to you!

It appears that the setup is how the diffs were built in the 80's and 90's with the old blue thrust bearing, washers and belleville spring washer. Am I missing something or isn't it the same? Just curious.

question:

this would not help the bearings that sit in the rear ride height pills? Anyone have a solution to keep from blowing those bearings other then driving lessons? I only got 2 race day out of the factory bearing. I think the problem with those is that they also have a side load on them in a crash, but only on one side. If only there was a piece that we can put on the other side of those bearing to keep them in line.

TIA

Default side bearings

Yea, that's a problem too. If you could slide a thin o-ring onto the axle instead of 1/4" shims, you might be able to come up with enough cushion for side impacts. If you run Roar rules, you need to make sure that you do not go wider then 6.75 inches in rear width. I took a set of Asc ride blocks and boared them out to accept 1/4x1/2" bearings and have not lost a bearing since (1yr). So I think that it is a size issue. Someday, we will get our wish. Brian

Default 80's

PK, you are right. The same concept as the 80's diffs. Just now we are not running Mabuchis, Johnson's and Igurashis with 32 pitch and really squishy wheels! Those thrust bearings of the 80's will not allow you to get your wheels on and off without taking everything apart. But, basically the same thing.
