All about heat & pressure .

Difficult to find a lube that works because of the loads these gears perform under.

Understanding what happens when you use clear is important though.
Agreed. I see more people have stripped idler gears because they use either the clear diff lube or black grease that comes in kits on the tranny gears both of which harden and cake between the teeth. Best lube I have used for years is this stuff from Amain

Based upon recent setup sheets and photos, Both Hartson and Jarosz are running with a 3mm shim on the hub, and my understanding is that provides the same height as top row standard hub insert.
Awesome!! Thank you good information

Personally clean all the gears after a dozen runs.

Mark each gear with Sharpie so you always reassemble the same each time.

After you get some you will appreciate , best I'v used so far..

I stole a small amount (bearing tube worth ) from my team mate Michael S.
I will try to get part # and post later.

YIkes ! That's right $240 for a tube..( aero space grade)
LOL - well, it probably helps that his Dad works in the aerospace industry...

Here it is for $150 for 2oz if anyone wants to put the most expensive lube possible in their gearbox.

If diff lube causes the plastic to harden up and breaks down under pressure then why on earth are we using it in our diffs?

I do not read anywhere anyone saying this. All that was said was the lube itself gets heated up and turns to black junk causing problems with meshing.

Default gear lube

I run my gears dry and they last for the lifetime of the Buggy. What is the main advantage for wanting to run lube?
