TOP Racing does. The TC5 diff seems to stay relatively clean without them. I have some of the TOP racing diff stickers but haven't tried them yet because I haven't really needed them.

Wow it's good to see that the same setup works on different track layout.

Thank you for the answer Rick.

Stock it came loose for me with a stock motor. Used the TC3 diff screw and nut with plenty of loctite and it has held fine for me.

Is anyone changing out the steel axles/dogbones for lighter ones?, has anyone noticed it being faster to use lightweight / aluminum dogbones and axles from other manufacturers, have you noticed it being faster due to less rotating mass?

Hello,

I use titanium racing CVD. Good products only 3g (But don't buy the layshaft).
But I did not measure the gain for a run.

I tried some Ti ones. They were about half the weight. The quality on them sucked and I ended up breaking one of them very easily. Not to mention they were very expensive. I didn't really notice any difference.

Funny, I thought the layshaft was fine and the CVDs were garbage. Why do you say don't buy the layshaft?

Yeah broke one on a light hit, it broke inside the rear hub between the bearings. One that I received was also out of round and wouldn't fit in the bearing (not the one I broke). I had to take a dremel to it for a while to be able to get it to fit. These were both the worlds CVDs. The stealth so far have been fine and I've been using them on the front because they have a larger angle than the stock or the Worlds CVDs.

Yeah the o-rings on the layshaft seems dumb. I threw them out and used aluminum shims to space it.
