Thanks for the help and time! Have you realized less cup deformation at the dogbones and less breakage because of it at all? I haven't touched mine in a while because I got tired of having to try to find a dogbone that came out because the axle cups were so deformed. Its why I was hoping to find a CVD type that would work as a direct replacement. I have some extras of the cups. I am assuming that the diff set you listed is the same piece that I will have to take out in order to replace the cups anyway. Maybe its worth just replacing the whole thing as you have suggested.

Sorry, I have not worked on many RC cars in the past. I have to try to find a tutorial video somewhere that will walk me thru replacing the cup axle pieces in order to fix them myself LOL. I keep calling them cup axles.... I am sure that's not what they are technically called.....

The diff i listed is a ball diff, not a gear diff, and, it isnt actually for the Fury. It is actually for the HPI Blitz, and is completely different than the original Fury diff, but, it will fit the Fury transmission if you shim it correctly. It has to be even in the transmission housing. I did mine more than a year ago, so i don't remember how many shims i used per side. Honestly though, i haven't ran my Fury much in months, because i ended up buying 3 newer trucks, so it mainly sits on the shelf, although, i do run it once in awhile. Before you put the ball diff in, i would learn as much as you can about them, since its nothing like the stock diff. This is what the diff i listed looks like when you first get it:

Yeah I used the Blitz diff in my old Granite 2x (from 2012!) and it stopped all my diff breakage and leakage issues. Some other hub I forgot, some HPI dogbones but they sometimes fall out so I always kept one spare with me when driving it. I like the Granite but lack of parts makes it difficult. The Castle SCT Race Pro sure woke it up, fixed the brushed motor problems, and made it scoot. Haven't driven it in years. May dust if off!

Check eBay. Except for the rear diff, every other part for the Arrma 2WD line is still available on there.

That is an Arrma Granite Voltage... Extreme budget 2wd MT, sold for around $99, sometimes on sale for less.

I really wish Arrma would come out with an upgraded /BLX version with a slipper, metal gears, and decent driveshafts. But that would probably cost same or more than the Mega 4x4.

Edit - Looks like someone fitted the tires shocks and driveshafts from the 4x4 Granite on there. I wonder how they got the slider driveshafts to work?

Actually, thats not a Granite Voltage. Look closely at it, and you will notice that the battery door opens from the bottom. It actually looks like the original Granite/Raider/ADX-10 2WD prototype that Arrma was showing when they first started, around 2009-2010. IIRC, when the production models came out, they had completely redesigned the chassis from this one, to the one everyone is familiar with.

Hi

If I'm not mistaken that is the predecessor to the voltage series, it was sold for a very short period of time before they discontinued it. If I remember right it had some major design flaws that resulted in the chassis braking quite often, somewhere around the motor area, and there was also something wrong with the steering servo and its mounting bracket that kept breaking. You might still be able to find some info on it in the really old posts, at least I think so, when they updated the forum alot of stuff got misplaced.
