Re: Diff loosening problems

While my diff was disassembled to add loctite to the adjusting screw, I thought of something.
The short side from the Pro-3 diffs will fit if you cut/grind down the center bearing support to match.
This would allow you to build the thrust bearing in a more conventional manner with the spring in the outdrive opposite from the bearing.
The screw head would also now be on the opposite side outdrive (from the kit) and I'm not sure if this would lead to other problems.
Has anyone tried something like this and what success (if any) did you have?
By having the screw head and thrust bearing opposite to the spring and nut, you get the old version of the stealth differential. I know this works MUCH
better than how the diff is currently built. I find it funny how I get NO
response from HPI in regards to the Diff design. I think this like my fourth or fifth post on the subject; I wonder when they'll get around to answering my question.....
I tried various parts/configurations/combinations with little success. Perhaps you can spend more time trying parts that i didn't....
I think I'll send PRP an email describing the problem, and hopefully, they'll make a solution to it....Seems like HPI isn't....
