Revo Hybrid diff V3 - 07.25.2009, 10:19 AM

The input bevel gear of V3 diff has 6mm shaft or 8mm?
The diff still has steel inner bevel gears as before?
Is it a necessary upgrade for 4s revo?
Thanks!

I believe it's 6mm.
It's not (necessarily) necessary but it sure does bulletproof the dt.
Some go with the LST/II or Muggy diffs, they are really tough and inexpensive, but slight modding of the Revo bulks is necessary to make them work ..

If you have the means to buy RCM's Hybrid diffs, do it! The LST2 diffs are fantastic, smooth and tough as nails but it is a lot of work to make them fit. And if you break a bulkhead, you gotta do it over again. If I had a bigger RC budget, I would go for the Hybrids. I use LST2 diffs and go through the trouble of fitting them in my ERBE because I'm poor

What! Is it 6mm or 8mm of input shaft in V3? In the photo of V3, it looks like 8mm diameter cut into 6mm to me. Who could offer a confirmation? Thank you.

In my own thread about the V3 Hybrid Diffs Suicideneil wrote "Since they are included with the V3s, I wouldnt worry too much- the output and input shafts are sized to accept standard traxxas yolks". Everything should be all set for stock drivetrain gear with 6mm inputs and outputs.

On the v3 I believe standard revo outputs are used - Mike machined down the outputs.

Update: You need to buy adapters from the RCM store to be able to use your stock center E-revo driveshafts with the V3 hybrid diffs.

Call me slightly retarded but i'm only 7 months into RC ownership at the age of 34. I'm just fixing up two e revo chassis for v3 hybrids. Before i buy a 2nd pair of hybrid diffs i just want to know do i need to change a connector off my standard driveshafts (the e clip bit) to connect them to the diffs or do i have to buy the coupler.
I'm talking about the output shafts or axles if they were a car.
My centre driveshafts are kershaw design dogbones.
I live in australia so i don't want to double up on postage again after already gettting one set of v3's.

Definitely 5mm the input shaft. I realized that after completing the rear diff. It is completely not compatible with the stock revo shaft or my aftermarket shaft (6mm inner diameter, 9mm bore for shaft pivot). Very sad about this. I may need adapter sleeves for my original shaft cups. By the way, my rear upper plate of G3R needs trim to fit in.

Wow, lots of crazy data here, so let me clear this up...

The V3 Hybrids can be built to run many different combos, so here we go:

V3 INPUT: The V3 Hybrid uses a true 1/8 scale diff, which has an 8mm pinion (input), and the kit includes a drive-cup so that you can run center dog-bones or CVD driveshafts. If you want to run the stock plastic slider centers, you will need to also buy the RCM V3 Aluminum adapter. Again, the V3 has an 8mm input, so you will need the special adapters if you want to run stock plastic centers.

V3 OUTPUTS: The V3 Hybrid comes with two types of output shafts, the standard 1/8 drive-cup outputs, and the special Revo outputs. If you want to run CVD axles, you will need to install the standard drive-cup outputs. If you want to run the stock plastic slider axles, you will need to install the included Revo output shafts. Again, the V3 Hybris comes with two different output options that allow you to run either CVDs or stock plastic sliders.

Pretty sure that if you want to run traxxas CVD's, you'll need to install the Revo outputs and get the Traxxas EXT cups for the CVD's.

I thought the 1/8 drive-cup outputs were longer than the Revo outputs with extended drive-cups on them, but I could be completely wrong.

Chadworkz, you are partially right about the V3 input.
It is 8mm; however,it is cut into 5mm where the drive-cup connects. At least, my newly arrived V3 is 5mm and my central 6mm cvd can't fit. Maybe the spec. or design has been changed. I decided to use the smaller cup for minimum efforts.
