Ball diff has yet to fail me(running 7.5r boosted) I don't like the leaks and tge fact tgat I have to refill and take apart about 1/3 the car to do so. Only issue is if a part breaks, there are no spares on the market. You need to buy a whole new diff.

Gear diff front ball diff in the rear. I replaced the original diffs and seals two times prior before switching out to thicker oil and the ball diff. Seems the rear was shot after about a 5 minute practice. Working on proper gearing still I've almost perfected it on carpet. Setup is still slightly off. But ta06 pro with just about every upgrade I can get on it handles well.

I have to say, my Pro is almost kit stock, except for springs and suspension blocks, and it is running on foams and is absolutely dialed, no hop-ups or stiffer parts. My only grumble has been the rear diff, seams to be able to retain fluid as well as a bucket with small holes.

Ive said from day one... The rear diff needs 2 o-rings for the outdrives instead of one.

Yep, 2 per side. There is slight bindage. I also used the hpi red o rings. They're stiffer and a little thinner.i lubed them prior to install to reduce the binding.

He is saying for the seal that's green that seals the gear up completely. I tried two works ok. The ball diff is much better I know it costs 40 or so but to not have to remove the entire back of the car everytime you blow out a stock diff is much better. I have sway bars front back, all aluminum blocks, all titanium tie rods ( this was learned the hard way unfortunately), etc

I used Green Slime on the gaskets and o-rings when I assembled my diffs and haven't had a problem yet.

Ta05 is lighter. Much lighter.its definitely noticeable. However this seems.... More balanced. It's also better handling.

I originally built the rear gear diff with black AE grease. Then I decided to use 1500 oil. I left all the AE grease on the seals and no leaks.

Green slime is a huge help absolutely I think everyone should have it in there tool case. And yes I bent up the front turnbuckles really bad and went titanium on all the steering and adjusting ones. I'm debating though on getting the carbon chassis by VBR racing or possibly the exotek one. It's just the battery load is highly inconvenient you either use the batteries with the deans connections that come from the corners or you have to use the posts and make sure the terminals are far enough apart to fit it once the battery is loaded.
