Default Where do i find Mini-t/baja metal diffs/tranny?

Im wondering where i can i find some metal diffs or metal tranny for my mini baja? I installed brushless on it, but i have to be very careful with it or else i'll fry my tranny. Who makes a metal tranny for themini baja or mini-t?

if you installed a bl system into a stock tranny that's your problem
look into getting a balldiff and a slipper.
tons of us have been using bl for years with no issues after the proper upgrades

Don't set your slipper too tight, you will be fine.
Ball diff still need maintenance after a couple run with powerful brushless.

Maybe Losi can start produce the metal gear diff for their minis.
That can make a ton of money for them, since all their mini used the same diff. (mini lst still used it on center diff)

MIP makes a grand ball differential for the mini T. I installed it almost a year ago now and I haven't had a single issue with it.

the losi ball diffs on the other hand just suck.

I used the Losi one, the diff screw keep backing off, even with thread lock.

I agree Sabin that the losi ball diffs suck, at least compared to the MIPs, but I never had a problem with a bolt back out of my diff as long as I used loctite threadlock. Maybe you're using an inferior brand.

I used blue loctite, only loosen up a bit after a couple run, but that enough to make a flat spot on these ball.
