Losi xxx4 front diff questions

Post by klavy69 »

I have an xxx4 front diff that is completely missing out of car and its been slow to find one. From what I read the xxx-s shares very little with the xxx4 but are the diffs the same? Is there any other diffs out there that could be substituted off of anything newer? Not finding much info but haven't ever really looked too deeply at anything Losi ever so not really sure where to look to be honest :oops:

Thanx
Todd

Diff is the same XXX-4 and XXX-S. Keep in mind that diff center that's marked with Black lines is an overdrive pulley.

They also shares the same drive cups, rings, balls, thrust assembly as the first gen XXX/XXX-T and even the XX-4 the only major difference being the center gear/pulley.
Consistency is the key I keep misplacing.

Valkryie RC has had a complete XXX4 front diff (with nice plastic outdrives) on eBay for quite some time now for $50

Cool, perfect for what I was hoping for. Thank you. I think I can scrounge up most of that stuff from parts. Now to dig out the xxx-s

Thank you. I've seen it but just haven't wanted to spend that $. I might just have to go that route. Its actually been up so long that I kinda forgot about it. It was listed a long awhile ago when I actually decided to pull this out and put it on its shoes again. That happens in spurts with my ambition level this last couple years. :?

Cruising through the Vintage Losi group on facebook last night/this morning I seen a pair from Spain and waiting to hear back whether he would ship to USA or not but really don't even know what the price was. Aaannndd, I only really need the front one so was hoping not to stock up on parts for something that will never really see hard running duty with me again.

Thanx guys.

Those plastic outdrives themselves sold for $25 to $35 a couple of years ago when I was hoarding all the ones I could find, lol.

Welp, it seems like I no longer have the xxx-s as I cannot find it. I still have the jrx-s but yeah...day and night differences there. Once all the dust cleared I had bought the one from valkarie one and an hour later received a PM from Spain that he would sell me the pair he had so now I'm not sure but "plethora" comes to mind about this damn thing :lol:

Thanx for all the responses guys. Now to wait on shipping.
