Hi guys.

I am running a gear diff on my v2 and it leaks after every rebuild.

My question is, is it ok if i were to apply a duct tape over it to stop the leakage? Or maybe apply some silicone sealant? Would it have any adverse affect?

Hi darkdays,

Where exaktly does it leaking?
You can sand the diff housing with some 600-1000 sandpaper laying on a flat surface and try the purple, or blue 3x2 TD o-rings, instead of the stock red one, this schould help and Will give you a leakfree diff.

I've used a thin bead of blue rtv gasket sealant on gear diffs before. Works pretty well and cleans up pretty easy when it's time to change diff fluid.

If it's coming from the outdrive you can use the TD330612 o-rings to seal it up.

Hi Devin, if the diff is new, that is normal and free up after one or two packs, than the gears are bed-in and the diff should be super smooth.
Just make sure, you dont have to much oil in the diff, that makes it feel tight, too and it force leeking!

Thank you. I was unclear. I mean the shims on the out drives going into the gearbox bearings.

Oh, or i did understand wrong!?
Remove some shims behind the bearings, if its feeling to tight.
Actually, i do like a tiny little play left to right of the diff in the gearbox.

Yea i only noticed that actually with the Gear diff in this buggy there is a tight spot right in the middle when you turn the spur gear . I may try with only one shim on both sides or none ?

No shims needed for the gear diff.

Real nice! I need to get a new car together. Mine is in good shape, but there is a little confidence booster when your running a fresh car. I really want the 210f to come out, like right meow! I think it might elevate my carpet game.

Very nice. I still need to finish mine. I'm hoping to have it all together tonight so I can do some practicing tomorrow.

I see you have some STRC parts on there. How are they compared to say Exotek?

Thanks guys. The truth is I was planning to use as much TD parts as possible. I bought a used kit on here and it wasn't anywhere near what I expected, so I just ordered another kit. I figured I had the gold parts, so I slapped em on. I've yet to run the car so I can't really comment on if one's better than the other. Honestly I thought about removing them all and just using all kit parts. The gold is a little too much flash for me
