One of the most important factors in building a good diff is keeping everything clean. Before you start wash you hands to reduce the natural oils on your fingers.

Carefully place the diff balls on a paper towel and spray some more spray onto them. Take it easy unless you want to launch the balls all over you shop.

Get some 600 grit wet/dry sand paper and spray some motor spray onto it. place a diff ring on the wet area and with a curcular motion sand the ring. If the motor spray dries out spray some more on to the ring and paper. The motor spray will clear away the steel removed by the sand paper. You want to have a consistant pattern of scoring across the full face of the diff ring. if you see any high or low spots in the area where the diff will run keep sanding. Sand both sides of both rings.

Clean the rings with motor spray to remove any residue and set them aside.

Clean the diff pulley with motor spray.

The main thing to remember is you want all the diff balls, rings and pulley to be clean and oil free.
Every racer has their own ideas about how much silicone diff grease is the correct amount to apply to the diffs. Before I say what I like to do lets cover what the diff grease does in the diff.

The diff grease is a damping fluid and lubricates the balls as they run in the diff pulley. The diff grease contributes to the limited slipped effect on a ball diff by damping (slowing down) the movements of all the components in the diff. The caused torque to contiute to be sen to a loaded wheels even if the wheel on the opposite side lifts off the ground or otherwise looses traction.

The diff grease also lubricates the ball and diff rings in order to keep them running cool and reducing wear. This is really important and is one of the reason why we use special silicone based greases on our diffs.

Silicone diff grease has a special property. It will lubricate between the ball and the pulley but offers near zero lubication between the rings and the balls. This is critical to the operation of the diff. This allows us to set the diff loose with zero slip between the rings and balls.

Over the years we have tried all kinds of diff lubes and I can say with all honesty nothing works as good as Schumacher diff grease. AE Stealth lube gets too thin and gets slung away to easily. Joel Johnson Lube is too thick when its cool but thins dramatically when it is worked hard. Schumancer Diff grease stays put and is consistant.

I had to rebuild my diff half way through a wet meeting.

Track wet and gritty and diff started to lock up during race,
bad under steer, could hardly turn diff over.

Grit had got between diff tube and plastic output, found three
thrust race balls loose.

Cleaned and re-greased diff, have had no problem since.

Thanks for your info n help, I'll find one to replace my thrust bearing.

If they are back in stock it is a good chance they will be the revised ones. Local Losi racer here has been keepin me up to date on this even though he is mainly a dirt racer. I hope that helps a little.
