    But like 50 said, You still have the weaker stock gears and the little pinion bearings that are prone to fail.
    hope this helps.

    Its a bulkhead and gearbox combined into one unit. It uses the stronger 1/8th scale gears. and bigger bearings.

    You can get them with or w/out the diff.

    You will loose some top end but can gear up a bit
    For the center traxxas cvd we did the washer mod into a losi cup with the 8mm pinion but if you buy the combo from flm theirs have a turned down pinion

    There was one on ebay by GH racing but it sold...i was going to buy it ..it was only like $15 with shipping brand new.......i think your best consideration would be getting the FLM Hybrid Ultimate Bulks.......

    Glad to help. I bought the same ones for my other maxx and the hr alum diff cups. Only used a couple times since so time will tell how they hold up. 6s is hard on stock diffs. I will stick with 4s for that truck. I had to do a little scraping on mine to get the bearings in,but no big deal. They also come with a bearing shim that alows you to use a 10x16mm bearing instead of the 10x 15mm. I didnt break the diff gears on mine it was the pinion bearings that failed and chewed up the ring and pinion on both. So some good pinion bearings wouldnt hurt. I used avid bearings,but theres better ones. Ceramic,ect.
