Just got done something some maintenance, and noticed my diff housing is bent. I've actually had some bad wheel vibration since I built the kit but thought it was tires. Even after balancing the right rear tire has a bad vibration. The side of the diff that is bad is pinned to the shaft.

Any chance getting Tamiya USA to replace the shaft/housing? Or am I out of luck and need to buy a whole new assembly?

Side note, also checked Tamiya USA site again, and it does say camber adjustment 1.5/2.5, but that's just bogus. With the mark on the inside I'm right at 1.5. Outside is barely a 1/2 degree, which was actually wearing the outside of the tire and leaving the inside still shiny after several runs.
Thanks to my sponsors for 2015!
