Why don't you just buy the diff kit? it is only 20.99 from Hostile hobbies....then there is no hassle... This put it together and drop it in[)]

cheers guys

yes that is the kit im getting but it doesnt come with all the bevel gears (internels)!

the reason im asking is because i see that there is one set of replacment bevel gears for the 5b and another set for the ss??

cheers

are you talking about the Viscus washer???? this is a diff upgrade for the stock plastic diff

you only have to exchange the stock vicsus washers (pictured below ouside left and right) and the stock diff seal/gasket.....the rest of the parts come from your stock diff

If he buys that kit.. he only has too swap of the bevel gears....Then why you @ it you might as well put in those missing bearings....and you can buy a complete ABEC5 bearing kit for your BAJA from 5thscale racing.com for only 40.00 shipped
