I switched to the gear diffs when I first got the car. I started with 5kf and 3kr and it had way to much turn in. I ended up at 10kf and 7kr. The track I race on is a large outdoor track that can get loose and rough for 1/10th scale buggies. The gear diffs are pretty straight forward. I did use bearings (5 x 8 x 2.5) instead of the plastic bushings supplied with the gear diffs. Here is the link for the petitrc info on the gear diff. http://petitrc.com/setup/kyosho/setu...BuildGearDiff/

I was using proline suburb rear and proline scrub front in x2 all day. But this tebo setup feels like it will be a good base setup and work in many conditions.

Mine is coming in the mail tomorrow....I should have never sold my 1st one. Can't wait! I am going right to the gear diffs with 5/5. Does anyone make Carbon shock towers for the car?

I was abusing my moderator permission's looking at the 44.3 thread. Seems as though the current rumor is that the 44.3 guys are running a center gear diff and ball diffs. Silly rumor's.

Has anyone tried to put light diff fluid in the front than the rear? Lets say like 3k or 5k in the front and 5k or 7k in the rear.

Anybody else have trouble with the cvd pin at the axles backing out? I've been putting loctite on the grub screws but the pin works passed the screw. Its getting more frequent. When the pin backs out, the grub screw is still tight. Seems about every 4 runs I have one back out. I'm keeping the cvd's greased. I check before each run but it still happens. I thought about putting a flat spot on the pin at the grub screw but am afraid of weakening it. May be the solution though.

When the pin backs out, ugly things happen. I have destroyed caster blocks, a swing shaft and a couple of king pin screws.

Try replacing the set screw as these can go bad sometimes.

Another alternative, if I understand your problem correctly, is to apply some heat shrink to that area for added protection. I don't know if it will always stay on but it might help.

The other thing too, that I can think of, is maybe you have a wheel that is really out of balance. This condition can cause excessive vibration through the drive line and that set screw just can't take it anymore.

Report back what you find in case someone else has this problem too.

On the rear CVDs you can use heatshrink tube like others have said but I find it doesn't stay on the fronts due to the steering lock.

I bulletproof all my Kyosho CVDs (RB6 and ZX5) by grinding a flat on the pin where the grub screw goes, and I also clean them carefully with brake cleaner before reassembly to really make sure the Loctite does its job (you should clean the grub screw as well).

Also I don't grease the CVD during assembly, it just contaminates the Loctite and you can do this 24 hours later after it sets using spray grease or something similar. Plus I change the heatshrink every week. Hope this helps
