Hi

Right, ive used the standard parts in my diff for a while and here is a few things I learnt early on –

Ensure that you build the thrust race with plenty of the Black grease, and also cake the diff rings/balls in lots of white grease.

The diff plates are flat out of the packet, so there is no need to sand them. I have found that if you sand the plate the performance of the diff isn’t as good and goes gritty/notchy faster.

Because the diff rings aren’t ‘D’ shaped to lock the ring I place Tamiya Hard Damper grease (which is purple and very sticky) on the side of the diff ring that face’s the diff half. If you don’t have any Tamiya Hard damper grease try a bit of the diff lube on the back of the plate (something I used to do with the Tamiya Diff in the 416 to stop the plate spinning on the diff half). If you do have the Damper grease ensure that none of it get’s into the diff itself.

Once built and installed in the car take time to run the diff in on the bench and tighten it up slowly till it doesn’t slip.

Hopefully this will help

Soooo... Been testing rear motor a bit more. It can be a bit harder to drive, but damn. I'm faster with it, and in close fights it's so good to have the grip out of the turns.

This weekend the last outdoor race in the Norwegian cup was ran on high grip and shitf***hell bumpy astroturf.

I had to make a few changes to make the car stable, but the biggest change was actually going from the HRC to the LRC rear block, from 3,5 degree toe to 3 degrees.

It's seems like the HRC is better on high grip to stop the rear from rolling to much, but then again, on the bumps the LRC feels better and more forgiveable. Also, my mind might be tricking me, but it also seemed like the lesser toe helped free the rear up. It felt just as stable, if not more, and it felt like it carried more speed. The rear just felt more "with" me... If you catch my drift.

Blablabla. Done. Going home. Bye for now:P

Almost! I now used LRC 3 degree, one extra 1mm shim under the inner front link, and the inner upper shock position up front. The track was super grippy AND bumpy though, so it wasn't great. Would be very interesting to test other places...

27.5 in front
25 kick
5 deg caster

6000mah sadle packs very tight fit but do fit

it was awsome was running with 2 b4's all day when we swoped cars i then found that my car was a lot easier to drive fast.
felt like a 4x4 to drive especially over jumps
bad pionts

but on the other hand the b4s i was practising with went through 3 rear shock towers

i had a lot of big offs and the 22 took it , very strong car

A dab of threadlock on the diff bolt/nut does wonders. Mine's never came loose in months of heavy use.

Just put the nut in the holder and drop a drop of CA glue in. It'll lock the nut in and you'll have no problems.

Done mine when i got the kit, first batch and never had a problem.

Actually, that depends a lot on the diff builder;-)

But these partnumbers make your diff great!

TLR2947 - Tungsten Carbide thrust balls
TLR2951 - Tungsten Carbide diff balls
MIP09151 - Mip hardened thrust washer
