it was suppose to be out in march but never came out.

I mean I really like my cars to have a center diff as it fits my driving better and kinda bought this kit with the hopes of having one for this outdoor season which is now here.

So I brought a ZX6 from a local guy a while back and been racing it with good results.

The car came with TFW126 Gear outdrives. No issues with them, just wonder if others run them and if they have switched over to them, what the handling benefits were (if any). Cheers.

I have been running them for the last month or so. The only real significance that I have seen is that there is less wear and tear on the pins of the dog bone. Also things are a little quieter. You can also use TFW008 on the inside of the gear diff too!

Good deal. yeah I like the fit and feel. Destroyed the rears by not paying attention to them when the clips wore out. Live and learn.... Replaced them and have a stash of clips on deck.

Been running them for quite a while, though I typically run on med.-high/high/super-high bite tracks.
Biggest benefit to them is the all metal ring and pinion, that once you get the gear mesh right and broke in, you can really hammer the gas without fear of stripping the ring and pinion, which can and does happen with the ball diffs from time to time.

By design the gear diffs do seem to have better on power acceleration, as they just lock up and go, but don't always have the feel off power of a ball diff. Almost like they like to be driven slightly on power if that makes sense. Once I got the diff oils right for what I wanted or needed, haven't had to do much else, though on low/low-med./med. grip can be a little bit of a handful with my 7k front and 5k rear oils I normally run.

Biggest down sides to the gear diffs that I've found is they have a louder gear train than the ball diffs do, mainly of the metal to metal ring and pinion, which when greased with the right stuff does get quieter. The other being if you're searching formate right oils in the diffs they aren't as easy to change the feel/settings as the ball diffs allow.

Having switched to the gear diffs, I don't think I'll be going back to the ball diffs for my normal racing/practicing, though with a new outdoor track about to open up, I might have to think about it.


I'd highly reccomend that anyone who wants to go to the gear diffs. Take the time to swap out the two little black plastic spacer/bushings that the out drives go through,,that come with the diff kit(s) and instead use two 5x8x2.5 bearings. Makes the diffs much smoother and last a lot longer

When you say, "though on low/low-med./med. grip can be a little bit of a handful with my 7k front and 5k rear oils I normally run" what do you mean by handful? What characteristics do you see/feel?

In general, loose feeling, easy to drift, or a little like driving on ice, mainly because I think the oils for that are too heavy/high and don't allow the diffs to work as effectively. Think a locked axle or posi rear end on a real car on a wet road, if that makes sense. So for those conditions maybe a 5k front and rear or even a 5k front/3k rear, 4K front/rear, 4K ftont/3k rear might be better suited for those low/lower grip levels. I don't normally run on those conditions all that much, so I am appling a bit of past knowledge from other cars over the years when I ran in those conditions more often.

Thanks Teufel Racing. That is what I thought you were talking about but wanted to be 100% sure.

My local track is clay, I'm having a hard time figuring out what oil and springs to run. What springs/pistons/oils are you running on indoor clay tracks?

I gained some traction with white rear springs. I'm also using MIP Real Shocks pistons.

2x1.6 front and 2x1.7, gold springs and 450CST all the way around has been winning for me on hard packed clay.
