Do many of you guys run the Gear Diff or Ball Diff in the front instead of the front pulley? What is the benefit, if any, of doing this?

It gives a little more steering. If you use a high viscosity like 1mil, it pretty much feels like a spool. But the number one reason I use it is because it saves the outdrives and dog bones from a crash.

I tried it last week and my steering is much smoother, the response or feel I should say. I could only find 600k. Where can I get 1mill in the states? I can turn the front wheels without any effort almost like a ball diff.

George you can use silicone ear plugs you can buy them at RiteAid they are $4. Use it sparingly work it into the gears teeth. Or I can give you some Tamiya puddy.

They got ride puty at hobbytown but I don't want to use that stuff. Seems to be a pain in the rear to clean out? The actual thicker silicon seems easier to remove out, right or wrong with solvent or motor spray?

The ride putty is easy to get out, you just use a bit of putty to pull the rest of the putty out and it comes out clean

Putty in the front diff is better than any silicon oil in my opinion

I'm looking at getting a second hand 417 for VTA/Vintage Touring racing.

I did a Google search for 417 front gear diff but only getting results for the rear gear diffs.

What is the part number for the front gear diff?
