They go into the diff/axle outdrive before the driveshaft to reduce the amount of wear caused by the sideways movement uncer suspension travel.

Thank you modellor, do you know if it's applicable to both Front and Rear or either of them?

Thanks again. I just couldn't stop wondering why it only shows 2 O-Rings, not 4.

Hey Cartman.

I didnt mean they alter the movement but if you watch the driveshaft while pushing down on the car they close in towards the diff due to the suspension geometry. These little rubber washers go into the outdrive to stop the driveshafts rubbing to much at the maximum point of suspension down travel to reduce the overall amount of wear on the driveshaft ball end.

Thats what I meant.

the pair of CVD with the o-ring at its side is for front while the other pair is for rear.

The o-rings go to the one-way outdrive to maximize the one-way roller coverage on the outdrive shaft.

Can someone do me a huge favour!!!!!!!!

What sizes are ALL the different allen screws on the MTX-3?
1.5mm-2.0mm-2.5mm-3.0mm

Just ordering the car along with some Hudy Drivers (don't want to order sizes not necessary as they are bloody expensive!)
