Default diff solution needed

Hello all. For winter, i run on carpet/foam tires which is very demanding on the car mechanically, and i've been breaking diff screws almost every run (either the front OR rear!!) Not to say i'm a bad driver, but i may graze a wall at speed on occasion, but that's it! I have tried the hpi, tamiya, and TC3 diff screw/nuts and all of them snap at the lightest hit. Has anybody got a solution to this?

I have tried running my diffs as loose as possible. Seems to help, but i dont like running the diffs that loose. Apparently i'm not the only Cyclone driver experiencing it. Also a fellow driver's RDX is having the same problem.

In the mean time, here is my 19t foam tire set up, near perfect, my lap time was 2 tenths faster than the closest person in our competitive 19t class..

Front/rear
camber 2/2
oil 50/40
springs 33.5/26lbs
ride height 5/5mm
droop 1.5/1.8mm (Δ ride height)
sway bar black/none
toe blocks 0/1.5
shock position 2nd hole/middle hole
spacers under pivot blocks 1.5/2mm (no squat/dive)
spacers under upper links 2.75/2mm
body parma alfa
diff/diff
everything else left kit setup

You're snapping the screw that holds the diff together? Or the nut? Have you tried using the heavy duty diff nut? I have personally never had this problem, and I don't see how you would be snapping this, as the diff should slip or just give under impact.

Yes, the screw. It's strange because only until recently, i have been snapping them. But like, the first 2 months of having the car, i had no problems whatsoever.

It might be that you just got a weak batch of diff screws. How are you building the diffs? Check Hara's tips on putting together the diffs. Not sure what would cause your problem though. Are the diffs totally smooth? I would say rebuild the thrust bearing and make sure you put shims in. (one between diff nut and outdrive, and one after the thrust spring.

I just broke my diff screw as well this weekend. I also broke the center one-way, the one-way bearing came loose from the pulley.

I talked to a few experienced racers and they said it's not an uncommon thing to have broken diff screw as the diff is under a lot of pressure and power.

Mabe you guys tighten the diff screw too much.
Since you run carpet, the diff is under a lot of pressure and it could be easy for the screw to break.Try to build the diffs as in the manual,and do not use thread lock,espesially the red one.
This could solve your problem.

I have never faced this kind of problem,and my diff is perfect for 40-50 runs and without thread lock.
