I think you don't need to worry about breaking suspension holders...mine survived all kind of hard crashes...I think you have more chance to bend shock tower or strip diff case screw holes (during all maintanance and modifying) than to break suspension holders.

Hm, maybe I'll try a set out then on my minitrooper. It would let me run the wheels I want to run at least on it.

And maybe you will need to drill out basher outdrive cups because the may be too long and dogbone can't rotate....I have longer Inferno ST arms and I have this problem.

I'm still waiting for second basher diff from Hobbyking...It's still on backorder.
I don't see that screw in the manual diagram of the mini basher.

I know it's part of the slipper shaft, but with the hole dilled out for the pinion pin do you need the screw to hold the diff pinion on?

(keep in mind please, I haven't taken my nc basher apart yet, I'm just looking at the manual)

Well....without screw pinion gear can fall off the shaft into the diff case..Basher is using outdrive cup which can't fall out of the diff case. I don't know if there is situation that shaft can move forward. But I think nothing prevent that situation except that little screw.

Pin is there just to prevent pinion gear to rotate on shaft....It doesn't go through the pinion. Sorry I can't explain better with my english

Or you can use CA glue on pinion gear.

I see the problem. Maybe red loctite a "missing" bearing into place on the slipper shaft... that would keep the shaft from moving into the diff case maybe. And maybe also glue that bearing to the diff housing.

Yeah, I assumed the pin was there just to rotate the pinion (like on other RCs, or wheel hexes), but it also stops the shaft from sliding further through the pinion into the diff. And I'm thinking that the loctited missing bearing would stop the slipper from pulling out of the pinion (the opposite direction).

I think the meshing of the ring and pinion alone keep the pinon from falling off into the diff case in these type of diffs. My 1/10 trooper uses a similar design.

Cool, btw I added a little to my previous message. But either way, I am excited to see what you find. It seems like you are just as eager to find a solution to the weak diffs as I am . I never knew they were so weak until I tried a motor with the least bit more torque than the stocker... the stock motor has perfect torque for these diffs. Even with 3s I never had a problem with the diffs, at least onroad... or with 2s offroad the diffs even last a decent amount of time. But get a motor with just a little more torque than stock and there goes the diffs. I should've listened to you guys before , jk.

That's true about mesh keeping gear in place...but I had a situation where little screw was loose on shaft...I noticed that because second (front) bearing was half outside diff case (I don't use glue there) and spur gear was wobbling. Maybe center shaft kept slipper shaft from falling out.

My little Turnigy is on my table just in off season time...and I have time for those problems. During summer season I prefer racing with my Xray 1/8 buggy which doesn't cause my any problems (knock knock)

Yeah I wish HK would restock the diff parts soon, I would like to try a bunch of things out.
