Maybe you got some debris inside your diff. A lot of times I'll put a paper towel down then work off of that. I'm always looking close to make sure there isn't any lint or tiny particles of who knows what when assembling my diff.

I rebuilt the diff again using new diff balls and it is much smoother. My problem now is that that screw that holds the diff together keeps backing out and making the diff extremely loose. A couple guys at the track suggested that I flip the diff around so that the adjustment screw is on the side opposite the slipper so that the rotation won't cause the screw to back out. I'm going to try it but what do you guys think?

I think you should use a dab of loctite.

Never had this problem.... I would just get a new thrust bolt and nut. Maybe the spring while you're at it.

How often should you rebuild a 22 diff?

When it starts to feel gritty.

Default New here.

Grate video info. It helped me out alot on my 2wd.

But I have a B44 and am kinda having troubles on how to tune the ball diff's and slipper. I haven't really replaced anything in the diff's, but re-oiled the bearings and checked the diff rings. The rings are getting "rings" on them, but the diff's still feel like butter. I'm sure I have to get new everything but I don't want to mess up the new diff's and slipper. I really have no clue on how to make them perfect, or how to tune them.

sorry if this has been spoken of already. Thanks for any help

Did you set the diff first following this guide? That is crank the nut down all the way on the slipper. Hold the spur gear & right side tire with one hand while trying to turn the left tire with the other.

Once that is done if you try doing the slipper test you will hear the diff grind. Back off the nut about two turns and see what happens.

I hit my throttle hard for just an instant. My front tires hop up about 2". I could pull them up more if I held the throttle longer. But I don't think that is a good way to set the slipper. I'm thinking the general idea is that it must pull the front tires off the ground. If not then it is slipping to much.

Ive always put mine the opposite side of the slipper.But i do notice people putting it the same side as slipper.I guess its a personal preference type thing.

I put my diff with the screw access on the slipper side, because that's what the manual says to do.

So I just got a B-Fast Pro Drivers kit with the carbide diff balls and the ceramic thrust balls.

I accidentally dropped one of the carbide balls into the carpet, I went over it a bunch with a magnet with no luck.

Now I need to know, could I just use one Team Associated carbide diff ball with the rest being B-Fast carbide diff balls?

I am really pissed off at the moment..

Thanks.
