These were posted in the Losi build thread (diff cups) and it looks like Losi has come through with a good solution to an existing trouble spot. I'm going to have to get some of these.

I can't complain about the old ones though, they are REASONABLY reliable, and inexpensive!

seems like Losi is going through a bad batch of plastic lately, hearing from people having problems with diff cups/ arms bending/ ect. Ive been running pretty much the exact same car for 6~ months and it seems fine
