I'm running the Motorsaver Savage 21 Air filter. It has a 90 degree elbow that gets the filter out from behind the heatsink. Works Great!

Motosavers work quite well. i had good experience with mine last year. i tore down my OS TR last week and there was nothing in there. and the poor engine sat all winter . Don't use the stock filter that comes with an engine they let too fine of dirt into the engine. Spend the money and get a good filter your engine will love you for it

Excuse me if this is old news.
I emailed Warpspeed and their price for those modded diff cases are $44 for the pair or $25 for one. If you get into a crash where you strip a gear or something gives and tears up the inside the diff case, you'll need to spend $25 for the spare. Ouch.

I rebuilt or more to the point re-shimmed my diff cases the other day. I ended up with no side shims on the ball diff, I found it was very tight with the shims and no grinding of the big bearing seats. There is a dremel grinding wheel that is just the right size for the outdrive bearings like this , doesn't take more than a few twists, go slow. You can also file the back of the plastic pinion to get just the right backlash. The tightness of the diff to rotate probably was a source of heating the case as we all experienced last year.

Broken servo gears, or check to see that the servo saver screw spring and nut are still tight, the nut gets loose and falls out.

For the fun of it , cool upgrade

For racing, not necessary.

Tried the Kawahara centrax, now gone back to 3 shoes with the hard spring and cuts on the shoes.

Can't tell the difference in big or techical track, but the 3 shoe unit is lighter than centrax so that's why I gone back using 3 shoe.

have fun

True!

Maybe it would be better if you bought the Helicoil tool and inserts and do it yourself. You could also Helicoil all the other easily stripped screw holes in your car. As for the bearing seats, you also could easily do it yourself too.

I guess so. I didn't know they made it that small.

Either, not enough surface area on the centax because of the ultra low engine mount and spacing of the gears. If I were dead set on a centax I would adapt a serpent or mugen, and make some spurs up from the delrin spurs OFna makes. The mip is not the GT 4 in 1, it only has one set of holes, I have it and I think its performance is better than the hard spring AE setup, although I haven't run them back to back. I like the MIP though.
