    Cush drive center diff?

    Can it be used in a 4x4 Slash? Would there be any advantages or disadvantages ? Thanks

    They did NOT call/spell it a CUSH drive did they?

    It sounds like a slipper just smoother/better. Id like to try one out. And ya it's a "Cush" lol

    As in cushion. Im not sure if this is technically a "slipper" though. It seems to me that its more of a rubber "flex" system that allows the spur to twist slightly under shock loads but not necessarily slip. I could be wrong... but that was how i understood it.

    Yeah they did.

    I don't think they cross referenced urban dictionary when naming their components. lol

    Oh ya, this isn't new per-say motorcycles use this system too. It sounds like it is neither a diff nor a slipper, just a buffer.

    I'm going to go with this answer. The EZ Start in nitro engines have a cush drive to absorb some of the shock but won't slip and from the photos it looks just like this.

    Looks very similar to the cushioning system in a Baja 5b. Not sure if the Baja system works or not but mine hasn't given me any trouble and if the design can handle that kind of torque then it should work great in the new car. Can't do anything but speculate until we get our hands on one though!
