Personally I can't wait.... I can't stand the notchy feel of a gear diff... ball diffs are sooo smooth... and it looks like we won't have those pesky plastic drive cups to worry about anymore..... :D :D :D

When do they come out?

I wish I knew... they should have come out with these when the shocks came out... this is one of the most needed hop -ups

Necessary Hop-ups:
1. Shocks
2. Bearings
3. Motor/battery
4. shock towers (though I haven't broken any)
5. diff drive cups... extras or alloy(spun one smooth... now the car doesn't run because the rest of the diffs unload)
6. Tie-rods
7. front steering knuckles (I hit something and broke the bottom where the kingpin screws in)
8. Ball diffs

and if the ball diffs come with metal drive cups... that'll kill two birds with one stone..and we can really make the tranny on these things bulletproof

I think anything else is just bling... but that's my opinion

When do they come out?
Not soon enough..

Not soon enough..

tell me about it... I can't wait to make my car bulletproof enough to take it to SoCal and not have to worry about the tranny...plastic diff outdrives, crunchy gears, different weight diff grease, slippers that keep on slippin'.... bleh!

does anyone think any company will come out with sealed oil gear diffs like in the 1/8 buggies? That is what I would prefer though I do plan on getting the 3racing ones when they are available!! :D
