Default RC8 Diffs in a Mugen buggy

Will rc8 diffs fit the Mugen mbx5r? I want to get away from the straight teeth that the mugen uses.

Use the truggy gears. I use kyosho ST-RR diffs in my Cen Matrix buggy and truggy. Those have the helical/spiral cut ring and pinion gears.

I know the center diff is a drop in as I had to use it in my R car,gotta run a bigger CB though.I dont rember if the front/rear or pinions will fit.Next time I pull the car apart I might try it as zero problems with RC8 diffs so far.Complete AE diffs can be had real cheap on the net.
