The Hot Racing Axial SCX24 Brass Differential Cover with Stainless Axle Skid Plate is a heavy brass and stainless steel option that adds 13 grams of weight to the axle in a low and centralized location to lower the center of gravity, increase stability, making the SCX24 a more capable crawler. The stamped stainless Steel skid plate helps to reduce hang ups on obstacles, improving the ability to slide over terrain, while brass diff cover is thicker than the stock diff cover for increased weight and strength.

Hot Racing Axial SCX24 Brass Differential Cover w/Stainless Axle Skid Plate
Bought two to upgrade both axles, they fit and look great. HR adds 4grams by increasing thickness on the bottom half of the diff cover. Doesn't affect ground clearance but makes using the skid plate a necessity to prevent hang ups. According to my well calibrated eyeball the additional 4 grams sits below the axle which helps get the CG even lower. I've only used them for a few days but seems to do well to keep the wheels planted on the ground. Don't have experience with the smaller 9g version to compare if it's worth the additional $10. The skid plates do pair nicely with the HR center skid plate!

My only gripe is I had torque flex and more gear noise after first installation. Torque flex was caused by overtightening the diff covers, too much friction on the worm gear. I've reduced both by adding a little diff grease (15k) and ensuring the screws are not over tightened when installing.

Hot Racing Axial SCX24 Brass Differential Cover w/Stainless Axle Skid Plate
its just a heavier diff cover i would pair this one with the 9g in the rear for a performance based rig.
for those who want to spend the extra money you will be pleased and watch out for torque twist. little grease and overall maintenance on the rig will help a lot.
(broke mans tip- 2 quarters is roughly 9g glue where ya like) =)
