Customer Reviews and Contributed Info
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.
So, it seems we're a bit late in wishing you all a Happy New Year, but considering the Lunar New Year begins on Saturday, maybe you could say we're right on time! (we're pretty sure this isn't an "alternative fact", but just a nice way of looking at our procrastination) ;) Regardless, we're celebrating 2017 this weekend with 10% off of ALL Atomic AMZ, AMR and BZ products! Just use the coupon code NewYearSave10 at checkout to save. Don't wait though, this sale ends this Monday, January 30th.
Also ending Monday will be our Holiday Savings. We love to give you any opportunity to save, but even the greatest procrastinator has to bring the holiday savings to an end at some point! :) You've read about the deals in previous newsletters, and they're all lined up for your ordering convenience on the homepage, so we won't bore you with the details here. But, if you're thinking you might like to pick up a new AutoScale for only $24.99, NOW is the time!
Thanks for shopping with us and have a great weekend!
Happy New Year!
For all reading this I will get to my point. Definitely buy here. Now I will go into more detail as to why. This store has great service in the fact questions are answered quickly and every order is proccessed and shipped in a timely matter, even around the holidays. I always was informed of where my package was, and it arrived with free shipping (limited time) in less that 7 days! Not only is the store and service good, but the product is awesome! I ordered a Mini-Z MA-010 Readyset Subaru Impreza Spc.C and it arrived quick, and ready for action. I did some minor reading of the manual and I was off! Talk about great out of the box, this thing made drifting look easy. It was smooth, and response was fantastic. I slapped on some upgrades and now I love it. It handles like a dream compared to my Xmods. I would definitely reccomend the shop, and products. Plus they are an official retailer of many products! The store, service, and product is amazing. I don't know how to stop rambling about it.
To end, I would like to say I LOVE shop.tinyrc.com!!
From Luigi, a satisfied customer. :)
