i was wondering if the rustler planetary gear diff will fit the srt tranny?

Yes.All internal gears are interchangable.

i might convert the truck to run the planetary gear diff. i have had alot of trouble with the ball diff's.

I raced my SRT for the first time last weekend.I actually had the older 4620 ball diff since the tension screw snapped in my pro diff.It performed flawlessly.I also have the pro diff in my LS-II and after months of running,the diff still works great(after I stopped all the dirt from getting in the trans)I would suggest getting a rebuild kit and carbide diff balls for your ball diff.The planetary is not very good for racing IMO.Even with heavy diff oil,it tends to unload the inside tire in corners and will also "one leg" on straights under certain traction conditions.The planetary may be a better choice for bashing or running high voltage batteries.But most race tracks limit batteries to either 6cell nimh or 2S Lipo and niether of these batteries are excessive power for a ball diff.

i know that. but i am having trouble with both my srt and rustler ball diff's. i dont really care a whole lot if the truck is slightly slower. right now the rustler and srt are jokes at the track. i mean since the first week the srt has barely been able to move under its own power. and the rustler is developing a very bad sound from the transmission. i have totally cleaned the ball diff for the srt and the tranny case out and still it isnt performing right. i ma having anough issues with gearing and suspension. dont need drivetrain issues.

In that case,I would gladly trade you a Rustler planetary for your ball diff:D .Just wondering,have you taken your TRX-3 to the track yet? I have to ask because that car also has a pro diff and I don't think anyone makes a planetary for the older buggy trans:unsure: .

i havent taken it to the track yet. and harry i might just be willing to trade. if so i have 2 ball diffs. one setup for a rusty and another setup for an srt.
