Scorpion Ball Diff + Lexan RC Box !!

Recommended Posts

Recently bought an old Kyosho Scorpion off ebay. While disassembling the car, i noticed that it had a Ball Diff installed. [:D]  But never heard of an after market Ball Diff for the Scorpion before. The car also came with a Lexan RC-Box. Does anyone know, who manufactured these Hop Ups back in the good old days ? Any info is welcome ! [;)]

Many thanks

Joachim

The diff looks like a Nodis diff, the Tufnol gear gives it away. They

made ball diffs for all the popular cars back then. Other companies

also made Scorpion diffs, I have a Thorp diff from my Scorpion with a

brass drive gear.

Can't help on the radio box. Easy way to save weight but a lot more tricky to mount the servo and hold the battery down.

I also have a thorp ball diff in my scorpion.  does the lexan radio box have any markings?  I have a lexan radio box made by MRP for my SRB and it is has their logo molded in.

Many thanks for the info ! You´re great guys.

The Ball diff is of very good quality. Works excellent.

It´s very hard to find info for this parts here in Germany.

For most of these parts, i think there wasn´t a distributor in Germany back in the 80s.

Will save the balldiff for one of my next projects. Tomahawk !?

@Shodog. There is the word *STAR* molded in the Radio Box. Maybe this helps.

Cheers

Joachim
