had my 1st major crash today, radio lost contact for a split second and the car hit a pole and snapped the front right lower wheel ball thingi.
it is used for adjusting the camber and toe in, the lower snapped in half. AND it was metal!

anyway thats the only damage, besides from pride.

Yeh they do break ive broken one into a bin

if its just bent you can hit it back into place if you put in a vice... but if you want stronger then go for titanium

Would there be any extra benefit from using the aluminium diff case?
It comes with 2 extra spider gears.

I thought you had to use your own gears

The advantage of the extra gears is primarily that it gives the diff a smoother action. (v-one-r/rr has the extras as standard)
