I though the only one that would work from the 04 to the 05 was the spool?

Except for the pulley, the diffs are exactly the same on the 04 and 05 kits

Yeah, I forgot about the pullies. I'm using some old FOC diffs that already had the right pullies.

Default Anyone know where to get ceramic diff/trust balls for the 05?

Also a tool to get the c-clip out of the diff? I have to say this car a breath of fresh air compared to my other TC. Parts quality and easy diff adjustments are well worth it. It's smooth and easy to drive. I'm a happy driver.

(begin plug) For what it's worth, I almost always use thercshack.com for getting XRay parts if I don't buy them locally. The guys there are great to work with, they take PayPal, and they usually have exactly what I'm looking for. (end plug.)

Agreed, thercshack is one of the best online shops I have dealt with. Website could use a little work, but that's not what's important in the end
