Found a super rare Thorp Ball Diff. Has to be opened up and rebuilt, but you can really see the difference between the Tamiya aftermarket Hop Up and this original Thorp.

If anyone has OEM Thorp bearing parts they'd like to sell feel free to message me.

55 38 57 27 Found replacement 3/32 bearings 24 Time to remove 30 year old grease 26 White vinegar for the bearings, a natural acid 20 Some walnut shells to shine the brass 19 Cold welded and glued with 30yr old sludge... 13 Found great advice in the Forum for this part 22 WD40 bath, boiling water, and a heat gun... 22 Then some dremel polishing and cleaning.. 15 Almost ready for another 20 years.. 14 Finally finished 22 Cleaned the metal... 12 All new bearings throughout...

If you liked those pictures, you should see these...
Next project after the Sand Scorcher
