Is anyone running on rough, deep cracked indoor clay? My local track seems to not know how to maintain the clay and it has developed deep cracks and has "plates" that will rock when stepped on. I know the B5m guys cut the waterfall etc. to get a little more traction. What should I do to gain a little more flex?

You guys are swaying me back over from getting a BMAX to one of these. Keep developing the medium grip setups!

So I fitted the 22 2.0 ball diff in my yz2..... Fit fine except needs side to side shims.

I do have to say yoko did us no favors trying to make a fast diff exchange. Have to take a ton of screws out to get to it.

Why is the ball diff better than gear diff. The gear diff works well.

Gear diffs seem to have a bit of stiction. The ball diffs feel like they react quicker. It's really hard to explain.

Well I dont race on sugered tracks and ball diff just performs better for me. Once I go back to a sugar track then back to gear. I dont really care to much about maintence as I will gladly work on my stuff.

Whole thread on the subject here, yeah its older but still.
Gear diff Vs. Ball diff

The only thing I got out of the discussion was very little. Schumacher had invented the ball diff intended for a 12scale on road car. The gear diff is the old original capable of being consistent and trust worthy with as much power used. The ball diff seams to be capable of being able to rotate faster than a gear diff. That makes sense in cornering speed. Forward traction may not be relevant.
