Yup it's a badass truck, if I had the money I think I'd buy it again just to unbox it and build it fresh haha

With the new diff cups you can really tighten down the four small screws (now)!!USING HPI SCREWS THO.LOL.Sometimes with the 2nd rebuild the screws will go in a little more ..Had one of the new ones leak out and just snuged it up a good amount more than last time and its holding. .Good luck!!

I had a leaky rear diff. The problem was the screw holes in the diff were too tight. It seemed like I had the screws tight enough on the first build to the point I was afraid they would strip if I tightened them anymore. After the rebuild I was able to screw them in more. I also sanded the face of the diff where the gasket seals on a flat surface and now my diff doesn't leak.

Make sure when you build the diffs you sand the face of the diff case flat. It doesn't take much . Just a light sanding. Then use some red or black grease on the gasket. Light coating .i use mobile synthetic grease red stuff.

Im about to build my diffs,I hear what you guys are saying,I think I might pre thread the diff housings without the cover or the gear on to be sure the screws won't bottom out or become to tight in the thread.
Hey can anyone tell me if the diff shims in the 2.0 kit are the same as the 1.0 , super soft.I have some of the hardened spring steal ones on the way to rebuild my 1.0 diffs with the hd housings,

I always pre thread the diff screws, never stripped one either.

I think I might buy the appropriate tap and pre tap my cases for my next round. Can't hurt, that way your not using the screws to pretap...

Heh heh, pre-emptive Dremelling - I like it! That way you can use the hex, but if it all fails you still have the slot without scoring the casing itself. Nice one!

I tapped mine part way and used a regular M2.5 socket head (not flat head) screw to pre-thread the diff cases the rest of the way. I was concerned that if I tapped to full depth, there would not be enough friction on the screws to keep them from backing out.
