If it ain't broke, you're doing it wrong.

The main issue I see with those is neither of them have a steel sleeve where the diff output rides. The diff outputs can wear down the aluminum in the cup where they go through, I had this issue with the GPM units. The Arrma aluminum diff cups use a steel sleeve as do the Hot Racing 2 piece units.

I use the hot racing and the red aluminum Arrma ones. I saw those avd I’m always trying new things so I was thinking of trying the vitavon one.

You'd think they would have thought of that :eek:

Vitavon would be my bet. Otherwise stock arrma metal works great too.
I just like trying new stuff that's all. I have a bunch of diffs always looking for new stuff to try.I’m going to try the Vitavon out

Just make sure you balance your wheels.

+!
Thats why I go with the Arrma metal diffs. (Has a steel sleeve) The Steel output cup shafts are best rotating within a Steel sleeve. Within an alloy, will wear out fast. The output cup shafts will start to rock within an alloy/alu. Sleeve.
Also, it's important to smear some grease onto the output cup shafts when assembling. How Tekno builds their diffs. It works. Your diff will love you for it.
:cool:
