    Diff gear?

    Does anyone like Hot Racing Steel Helical Spiral Differential Gear Set? If so why or why not. Thanks.

    For bashing I just stick to stock. Cheaper to replace once broken.

    If you're blowing out rear diffs try getting a center diff. The science behind the helical gears means the diff is more quiet and efficient than straight teeth but a center diff will fix diff gear stripping issues.

    If you are talking about - https://hot-racing.com/?partnumber=VXS9282X02;c=455

    These are awesome hop up parts but expensive and near impossible to find since they haven't been being made for over a year I believe. They are great if you have the newer diff housing with the cross screw. If you have the older design the new thrust angle created by the helical cut to the gears will cause problems still.
