    Question Best center differential option when replacing slipper clutch on Deegan Rally.

    Looking for some input on center diff options for the Deegan. Have a new Sidewinder 3800 going in this week, as well as an aluminum driveshaft, and am trying to figure out the best option for the center diff as I know the stock slipper clutch won't hold up.
    Anybody have any experience with this? Suggestions on what's worked best for you?

    Also, anybody know if the Hot Racing Sway bars will fit the Deegan? #SLF311
    I was told they won't and that there are not sway bars made for the new 1/10 rally yet. Is this true?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hot racing has a one way diff... Would be cool in a rally car. Only the rear wheels lock up when braking kinda like an E brake, but its full time 4wd under throttle. I had a center diff in my slash platinum. I ran fluid that was too thin and it got so hot that it melted on 2s. I would use no lighter that 100k if using the traxxas diff.

    If the sway bars are too wide for the rally, you can bend your own from music wire. As long as the mounts and links fit, you should be able to make it work.

    Traxxas #6898 Sway bar kit for the Slash 4x4 will fit:

    Unless you really would like a center diff, you could just get the slipper clutch assembly for the Slash 4x4 Platinum:

    That sounds like a ton of fun!

    How did the HR diff hold up for you?

    I never owned the hot racing One Way diff. But I've done a lot of research on it, and it is supposed to be very very strong. I did on the 4 x 4 Platinum diff and I melted it on 2s with 50k weight oil. I put a hundred K back in and it was fine

    I did the Slash 4x4 slipper conversion with 32p gears. The parts from the Slash 4x4 are pretty much all interchangeable with the rally minus the arms.

    A con of a center one way diff is no slip and no power being bled off to the front wheels when under throttle. Could be very hard on the driveline with no slip...

    Put slash 4x4 arms and links on it. Slipper clutch mandatory. Other than that send it.....i do on oval race day.outdoor clay track. Use the stock body posts except for the rear made a custom set up from another buggy of mine.
