Would this work with the stock savage spider gears or do I need the hb ones? Also will my savage x drive cups work? You only have the xl or flux listed.

I am a bit confused whats the best diff to start from,    is it a complete Vorza diff or Savage BP diff?   From there what to do? I see a couple combos being mentioned so a tad confused.

You can either buy the parts or just buy the complete vorza diff and swap put the ring gears and pinion gears out.

OOOOO ok I think I got it, when you say "swap out" the ring and pinion I assume this means over to the 29T Savage BP set?
Apologies for my confusion, the upgraded diffs for the Savage X were released from HPI after I was already completely disconnected from the hobby. I had been building my 4 gear diffs with Mugen parts to that point I think, might have also done one with my HB Lightning parts but don't know if I every got around to it.

Gonna see what prices are like for those 29/9 ring/pinion + Vorza diff for when my diffs need a rebuild.

Thanks!

Let me ask another question, is this set I need if I purchase a complete Vorza diff?

Yes and they can be found on the flux and XL. The savage X comes with a sintered version which is still very strong but not machined steel like the link you posted. I've ran both in my high powered set ups and for nitro I'd run either.

Look on eBay you can actually buy the while front and rear diffs installed into the bulks for a steal of a price.

If you get the BP gears then you go to the first page and buy all those part numbers and then you have everything to complete the diff

I keep blowing up the 9t gear on the bevel set.  I have a Savage Flux HP XL and one set to a 1/5th scale from the TCS crawlers kit.  Both of them I this setup on all 4 diffs but for some reason I keep stripping that 9t bevel gear.  Is there a better one then the hpi 102692 or am I just not shimming or missing something else?

9t bevel gear? You mean the 9t pinion?

The bevel gears inside the diff are 20/10 tooth counts.

Are you running 1/5 scale wheels? If so that's your problem. They weight over 1 lb a piece. That's a huge weight gain and extra stress on the drive train

I have been told many many times that upgrading to the alloy bulks is worth every penny and will help save your pinions

I would recommend FLM hybrid bulks

Will this mod work in a savage flux HP? I haven't had any problems. What is the main problem this mod is solving. I don't really understand
what folks are saying about the bearings.

What is everyone doing about the weak pins that key the large bevel gear to the outdrive? I am sheering them off like it's my job.

The stock savage pins are 2.5mm. You can bore the hole larger to accept a 3mm pin. It will fit and fill the gap inside the bevel gears. I got mine from Amain there serpent 3mm pins

This diff mod weighs less and gets rid of the weak 10mm bearing
