darn trading are slow as. I used to work for my local Hobby shop and we have always said they were slow. because they are one of the slowest distributer weve eva delt with.

so im goin to the HK shops
aren't all private hobby shops like that?!?!?! no help unless you are going to buy a new car or something. luckily, there are chain stores like HobbyTown USA, where you're guranteed to get good service.

If i remember correctly kyosho america may still have some. What part of the world are you in? If you are in the states, i can find a shop near you, so that you may order it IF kyosho america has them. I will check stock in the morning.

I tried some diffrent fuel which isn't as old as mine but still a little old and i was reving in the air and i seemed to not be getting hot as quickly but after a little while about 1/4 tank done it again went very hot and stalled from heat and unable to start again from the heat.

Im going to get fresh fuel tomorrow but now im not sure that it is the problem.
These engine are ment to be reliable but there is obvously something over heating it.
Not last 5 minute qualifings are enoying but unable to finish the 20 minute final realy makes me think diffrently about this engine.

Any ideas.

It fits, but it's no good if you run on foam. I don't know about rubber. The car is inconsistent as the grease heats up and making it consistent with thicker grease totally negates the supposed benefit of the diff.

Yes it fits but i use diff oil instead of TCD oil. Not so sure if this make the diff function differ but so far the car with it running well. And yes i run form tires.

I have used the TCD Diff gears in the past and what I found was that, it did exacly what Kyosho says it will do and that is, lock up under high load and spin free when not under load. The problem I had with it is when you were powering through a corner and then let off a bit to correct or avoid another car it would unload and then when you hit it again you could tell that there was a small delay in getting that power on steady feel of a locked diff back again. I just found that regular gear diff with the right fluid for the track is better.
