When I get the AE diff it will be just too worthy to stuff it with putty.

Is 500k diff fluid significantly lighter than putty?

This is not a comparison with AE oils.

AE chart is the same "old" (but good :-)) AE oil that have been tested to have cst value (Official international system of units).

500k is a tad "thinner" in terms of feel compared to putty/eraser, but you can't go wrong either way.

Geberit ---- did it break in an accident, or just while driving with no contact?

I think no accident just driving. There was a little touch with an opponent so I'm not 100% sure. Bud I didn't realized it till I came home and I tried to turn the wheels at one point it stuck so I assumed something is not wright. I opened it and at this point everything came apart ...

What make of putty were you using? I had the Serpent in mine but with the weather getting very hot in the afternoon, it started to become too soft, as far as I could rotate it with wheels, But on cooler temp it was really good.

I'm using this one: http://www.tcmodels.net/index.php?pa...mart&Itemid=71

In hot weather it gets softer too buy I doubt ther is a putty that won't get soft in hot conditions.
