Slipperraential? or fake? - 03.11.2013, 10:32 AM

I picked up a MBX Buggy with a Tekno conversion as a job lot, and in the parts case was what looks like a Slipperential.

Not sure if it is a real or faker though.

Obviously needs a new spur, does anything else fit? Shipping from Mike's store is coming up at $30 just for this one part!

wow! I'm curious how one would accomplish that kind of carnage with a steel spur?

That backplate doesn't look like the RCM slipperential I've seen. Could be just the angle though. Maybe a couple better pics would help.

That looks like Mike's IMO with a delrin mod1 spur chunked, covered and smothered.

Looks real. I think the faked ones were anodized.

Just MSG mike. If intl he always defaults to insured shipping.

The diff doesn't appear to be anodized, the Spur is (or was) metal and not Delrin

Not sure how it happened, it was in with the box of parts, not even sure what it'll fit!

Looks legit to me - the knockoffs don't cut the helical ball groove for cooling on the slipper-side endcap(just slots). The stock spur is cast, hardenened steel and we have cnc steel and Delrin upgraded spurs as well. The site shipping to any international location will quote $30+ for almost anything, but we can ship 1st class for smaller orders if we arrange it through email(site won't allow it). :)
