With the blue blocks, you can raise it higer than the silver blocks by shimming without hitting the belt, thus changing the roll center of the car and will also affect caster.

Hi,

Did you Guys ever experienced this:I am using front and rear diffs in my car and sometimes during a run either the front or the rear diff tightens itself obviously the car gets undriveable.
I need to losen it afterwards, is there a way not to get into this problem it is quite annoying especially during a race.
Should I be cleaning the diffs more often or what to do not to get into this ever again?

Thanx in advance!!!

Seems like you dont have any lubrication in the diffs you better start rebuilding them, make sure you use the tamiya ball diff grease, not just ordinary grease build it as is in the intrusctions

Hope this helps.

dismantle the diffand clean it out individually with motor spray or metholated spirits, make sure there no grit, dust etc..

plance a considarable amount of ball diff grease in each ball, then smir off a little grease in the rings also, it would be an ideal to turn the rings around the opposite way incase there is any wear on them.

Make sure also to grease the thrust ball, then simply just build it up tighten the diff screw until you cannot feel any slip when you turn the diff pulley.

It could also be the M2 nut. Replace it if it is worn.

Degrease the screw & nyloc nut; when reassembling put a little
Tamiya Threadlock on the nut. (Use the blue Tamiya stuff, as this
does not dry totally hard and remains tacky afterwards).



You might also want to check your Thrust Bearing.

If this has jammed, it will unthread your diff screw.
Clean it out and stuff it with diff grease.



As for amt of grease... "less is more".

I stick with the Tamiya Ball Diff Grease, no reasons to change.

I'm of the "put the grease & balls into a little baggy & squish"
school. Take the balls out & install, the grease smeared on them
is enough for the whole diff. The rings don't need greasing.


Rebuild your diff when it feels gritty.
