The Losi 22 diff nut setup is designed differently than I think you're imagining.

That is the main reason I wanted to thread the stock 210 diff screw smaller.

I'm going to look for other solutions while still using the Losi holder. I really don't want plastic ears anymore.

What I did was I bought the losi 22 Differential-Through-Screw-Nut-Set. Went to the hardware store and bought a nut for the Durango diff screw. Ground the nut down and glued it into the nut cap. So far it has worked.

Looks sweet are you making them? Also, who makes the best front & rear shock towers? I'm looking to get some up grade components for my buggy.

Marcus, I had you in my mind as soon as I saw his break. Will your version also work in the rear motor position? I need some of your stuff anyway, pm you later.
Those pics I pulled from OOPLE, I knew those euro guys would have one already.
This will be a must have part unlike some of the bling imo.

We opened a new indoor clay track today

So are you using the Durango Diff screw or the Losi?

Also, anyone have gearing options for a 6.5?

not sure if it will work with mid motor or not, but since 90% of the owners run RM i will make the RM version first.

I am using the Durango diff screw. The only part I used out of the Losi Diff Screw set was this cap. I had to grind the nut down a little so it would fit in the cap and also used some CA glue to hold it.



So far it has worked perfect.

I bought that same TLR part kit and the plastic nut holder broke the ears off too. I'm barely getting these things tight and just come apart. I was able to get the diff tight enough that I can overpower my slipper and turn the spur gear by hand while holding the diff out-drives solid, so hopefully this should be tight enough. This also means I have no ability to tighten it after running the car, so it's just going to have to work until someone gets diff parts instock. Will have to order a complete rebuild kit as this diff will probably never come apart.
