Crap! And I assume that you can not buy just the diff half or just the replacement outdrives either???

Right now I have 2 set of the lightweight diff with no long size diff half. Does this mean I will have to buy the whole diff assembly every time the diff half is busted? That doesn’t sound right.

I ran the car on the carpet for two weeks with out no problem, because I don’t use any brake. Ran asphalt for two broke two diffs…. Crap, this is really sucks.


I checked RC shack earlier and few more places, no joy.

You musta hit something real hard to do that....

Find it hardta believe braking did that... unless it was braking.. as in using front wheel vs a concrete block...

When I ran on the asphalt I ran the front diff really tight almost lock it up like a spool. The asphalt track we ran got a 180 turn after the str8 away and have lot of traction but no concrete blocks.

If you wish to duplicate the problem. Try a very tight real tight front diff and yank it and let it rip for 75 feet and hit the brake a few times and see how the lightweight diffhalf hold up.

I didn't blame anyone but me, didn't know better not to lock it up. Didn't have a real spool, oh well.

Yeah, that would do it. They are lightweight and thus less strong than the full weight ones. If you prefer to run this way I'd recommend the spring steel diff instead as it is much stronger: http://www.teamxray.com/teamxray/pro...kategoria=1297 . If you truly want to run a spool I'd suggest the new multi-diff (available for both T1FK'05 and previous T1 incarnations) as the driveshaft adapters are also made from springsteel.

Note that I haven't seen this happen before with the lightweight diffs so I assume that unless you have a seriously hard crash they are sufficiently strong when run as a normal diff.

Thanks Tonyv,
The first time I broke the diff half, it may suffered the injury from 2 weeks ago. The 2nd one was just a few hours old (just bought that day).

I think the problem was me, I think lightweight diff wasn't intend to be used like that. Wrong tool for the application

At any rate, I knew the options are there... BUT where can I BUY it?

Link to the XRAY option page didn't help me, cuz I can't buy it.

Like Mario on the XRay forum I suggest you email to email to <a href="mailto:[email protected]</a> . They should be able to say where in the US these can be ordered.

All I did was order the old style diff (the one that is not all cut out), took the balls out, and tightened it down, works perfectly.

Anybody know if the HPI Pro4 shocks will work on the FK05?
I know the Tamiya Dampers work, but was wondering about the HPI ones will work.
I noticed the HPI springs have a shorter spring length.
Nothing wrong with the Xray ones, but after building Tamiya and then HPI dampers, the Xray ones fall a little short.

Well, when I ordered mine, RCAmerica still had some in stock. So, you should be able to get whichever hobbyshop you buy from to order one for you.
