This is a pair of optional GHEA Racing Products Aluminum Gear Box Input Cups, and are intended for use with the Team Associated RC8 line of 1/8 scale vehicles. These cups are made from 7075-T6 aluminum and have an additional sleeve that slides over the cup trapping in the pin, eliminating any chance of the pin escaping. This set includes two cups, two sleeves, two boots and two set screws; enough parts to outfit one vehicle.
Note: Be sure to use black grease during assemble.

GHEA Racing Products Aluminum Gearbox Input Cup Set (2)
Let me be clear here, I like GHEA. In fact, I'm using their C & D blocks, standoff inserts, shock caps and pistons and I think that they're really high quality stuff. But this input cup cost me a final ! The cva pin forced it's way through the sleeve making a hole and flew off to freedom. That was the front one. The rear one held up but the pin holes expanded way more quickly than the kit's stock aluminum input cup. So after 2 long races, I went back to the stock O ring setup (which never failed for me). This is really disappointing for such a good company.
