    Savage flux 9t bevel gear

    Does anybody know what diff/bevel gear sets if any would replace the bulletproof diff bevel gear, the 9t gear. I can’t find hpi parts and I’m hoping by some miracle I can use a diff (high hopes) from another manufacturer. I took my flux out to entertain a kid (6yr old) a few weeks ago. After...
