Author: Brian Stanley First I would like to say that I have used several different MFG of ball diffs, and I have these Kyosho Ball Diffs in everyone one of My MR-02's now.
Fist thing to note it that they are the smoothest ball diff out there. They are also very maintance free, basically all you need to do is clean them every now and and again and just brush them off as needed to keep clean. They also hold their adjustment well. With the other ones I had I was always adjusting them because the adjustment would change over time. These ones have been fabulous at staying were it is set.
In my opinion I this is the absolute best ball diff on the market, period.
Author: Brian Ma (color01) As mentioned above, the Kyosho ball diff is definitely the smoothest one from the factory. It's overgreased compared to some others, and a little stiff out of the box, but once broken in (two runs or so) it's buttery smooth. Very consistent action and a relatively large range of adjustment -- some other diffs lock up prematurely or lose power if they're too loose, but not this one. Very impressive.
The downside, however, is weight. The Kyosho diff, does not come with a titanium shaft, so if you're a particularly sensitive or weight-conscious Mini-Z driver, you'll have to spend a bit more to buy a Ti-shaft for this diff.
Aside from those two, Kyosho thoughtfully includes spare parts and tools for the differential, something that other manufacturers don't bother with. The spare O-rings are especially important as they do wear out over time and it's nice that you already have two spares in the package to use.
Overall, a bit on the expensive side, but a well put-together package and worth the money for the smoothness alone.
Great news - we're back! You may have noticed that the shop took an unexpected vacation last week. Some technical difficulties left us out in the last cold week of winter, but Spring is here, and we're back up and running! :)
Speaking of Spring, our Winter Savings are now on borrowed time! They're all laid out for you on the homepage, so take a moment to scroll down and save!
There is of course new too, including the Kyosho Mini-Z MA-020VE PRO SP RC Chassis Set (2.4GHz ASF). This base chassis is optimized with special racing specifications, including a motor cooling system. Loaded with the same lightning fast 8500KV XSpeed VE brushless motor
power source as the MA-020VE PRO, the SP Chassis Set is also equipped
with an aluminum motor sleeve and motor cover to control heat and
extract every drop of power from the brushless motor.
Intellect batteries are the punchiest batteries I have ever tried! and pretty good bang for the buck. I have had a couple of cells vent so they are not a perfect 10, but I would say they are a pretty good 8.
This testamonial thing must be new...
