HPI Blitz Ball differential

Now available from HPI as an option part for the Blitz RTR, replacing the standard gear diff, this ball differential comes directly from the high performance Blitz ESE. Featuring ceramic diff balls mated to a ball race and a steel gear, it ensures smooth ball diff action without compromising the strength of the all-metal drive-train. High quality out-drives ensure long part life. The diff is easily adjusted with a 2.5mm driver so you can tune the feel to your driving style. The diff also shaves 20g of rotating weight from the gearbox.

Factory Team SC10 lightweight ball differential

Team Associated have announced the introduction of the Factory Team ball differential specifically designed for the SC10. Once built, the differential fits directly into the stock SC10 transmission case without any modifications. Racers have long enjoyed the handling benefits that a ball differential offers. For nearly 30 years, competition electric off-road cars have been equipped with them, and for good reason, ball differentials improve handling consistency over bumpy surfaces while increasing cornering capabilities. Each outdrive is machined from hardened steel for exceptional durability, then lightened to reduce rotating mass. The outdrives are also available separately so that current T4 and B4 differentials can be upgraded for use in the SC10.

Traxxas Slash Big bores & Slayer centre diff

Traxxas Slash Big bores & Slayer centre diff

New from Traxxas for the Slash is this big bore shock kit for the ultimate in bump and jump control. These fully assembled precision dampers are the perfect addition to the popular Slash Pro 2WD Short-Course truck, using machined aluminium bodies for consistent action lap after punishing lap, with a hard-anodized finish for extra strength. Also new from Traxxas, but for the gas powered Slayer is a new centre differential which helps balance power distribution from the TRX 3.3 Racing Engine to reduce front end lift on acceleration and improve steering responsiveness. When used with the dual-disc rear brake kit, brake bias and power distribution can be adjusted independently for maximum performance in various conditions. This is the perfect combination for putting power to the ground in rough terrain and maximizing corner speed.
