Anyone having trouble with their gear diff? I ran mine for two race nights with no trouble. In last night's first qual I had no forward go, kind of like if someone loosened my slipper up like 4 turns. I just pulled everything apart and it feels like maybe the gears aren't catching like I need a small washer under the sun gears like I had to do on my A/E gear diffs. That being said it is still notchy feeling, almost like it's not broken in yet. What the heck is going on? Luckily i had the trusty B4.1 waiting in my hauler to run the 2nd qual and main.

If you can try the AE HT pads or even the schumacher ones both fit and are a little thicker.

So you think it's the slipper and not the diff? The diff is really strange feeling but it doesn't explain the not going part...

Or layshaft spacer, the stock one is a soft alum material and crunches easily making it impossible to tight the slipper enought to pinch it. If you look at your lay shaft and it looks worn at all u can run thicker pads or put tape on the backside of them to make them thicker and run temp while you wait for a new layshaft spacer, They have a new one out which is a hard finished material which will last a lot longer.

Another temp fix is to put a nitro clutch shim with the spacer http://www.petitrc.com/setup/durango...perSpacerWear/. #310243 is the updated layshaft spacer.

I haven't used these before, but have heard they are good:
or these work, but I had to do some mods to make them feel smooth.

anybody else have this happen to their diff outdrive?



This is only after 5 weekends of racing on this car. The other outdrive looks perfectly fine, but this one looks like its gone through several seasons of racing. The wear actually caused the cvd to pop out in the middle of my main today.

Anyway, I think I might go with a gear diff instead of just replacing the outdrives. Who runs and likes the gear diff?

Yes I have had it happen to several of my diffs and my friends too. I am sure u were running mod, stock seems to not cause the problem. I think these outdrives suck! I have switched over to AE hybrid diff because of this very issue. Gear diff works, several people on this forum love it.
