    FLM combo bulk vs hybrid bulk

    Question for you flm experts. My buddy picked up a set of used flm hybrid bulks with diff. I took a lot at the diff and it's a fastlane aluminum cup but it only has 2 spider gears. We were arguing if this set is the combo bulk or hybrid bulk. Is this diff 1/8?

    Imposible to have only two spider gears it should be 4 at min. I guess those aren't 1/8 diffs hybrids are design for regular diffs and 1/8 diffs. Some pics would be more helpful to identify the parts

    You have the combo bulks for stock diff gears. You wont be able to fit 1/8 scale diffs inside them bulks.
    But at least it has the alloy diff cup.
    I would try to sell them, and then buy the Hybrids instead.
    This is my old setup, that still failed (same as what you have in the pictures but with a red alloy cup and the I bar from the brushless diff).

    Dead giveaway is the small pinion bearings. The hybrids use 8 x16 mm bearings thee for a big jump in strength.
