VSR Products Easy Ball Diff Builder

See: VSR Products

VSR Products have introduced the new Easy Ball Diff Builder to all common 1/10 scale ball differential components 3/32″ or smaller. Dealing with small differential balls during a rebuild is tedious and frustrating. The tool is designed to hold all of the diff balls in the main compartment, and then allows them to “pour” out the track in a single file line. VSR Products recommend tipping the Easy Ball Diff Builder over your greased diff gear, and tapping lightly on it to allow only one ball to exit at a time.

Corner Speed RC O-ring grease

See: Corner Speed RC 

Coming from Corner Speed RC is a premium lubricating grease. The grease has been carefully formulated to create dynamic lubrication between o-rings and metal parts and it was specially designed for use on rubber components and gaskets such as shock/diff o-rings to allow smoother operation as well as minimising leakage. Unlike other silicone-based grease which slightly swells the O-rings and rubber parts, Corner Speed RC O-ring grease is a clay-based grease which is well known being more gentle on the rubber parts for more consistent operation.
