I use a spray on lube which is very thin and work it into the joint. You can do the same with blobs of grease, just use something like Hudy graphite grease which is thinner than tamiya AW

If anyone is interested, I'm blogging my new car build on my site. If anyone wants to see something specific let me know, I'll fix the photos over the weekend.

X top deck, the original one isn't good with the setup I'm running now

This method for building the unit II diff differs significantly from Jilles video. Have we established that using Jilles method won't cut it for mod racing?

Anybody have any preferences and why?

Thanks!!

Matt

the smokem was a massive change from the original 417 deck. i struggled with rear traction with the original deck, as soon as i put the smokem on, it was planted.
i have now the x-lower deck to try to see what the difference is between that and the smokem.

but i have been a fan of the smokem deck since the FX chassis for the 416.

FWIW, WURTH makes a spray grease called HHS2000, comes out like a spray but turns into a lite grease once it setsup, works pretty good on ECS.

Tamiya DCJs last in mod or will I be rebuilding them every other week? I was planning on running a spool... maybe better off trying a front gear diff with steel shafts instead? Will be running a 4.0T on a 230 foot straight.

Also, which is the best brand spur gear for 417X fitment? Since I will be running outdoors, would like to change to 48 pitch... something like a 87T or 89T 48P to a 19 or 20t pinion = ~8.7FDR
