Thanks in advance.
My team mate had a similiar problem with his rear aluminium diff loosening off part way through a run even though it was tight at the start.
The problem was the thrust bearing was too tight in the diff half and was grabbing the diffhalf & diff bolt once the diff warmed up slightly, he changed the thrust bearing and now the diff works perfect.
To help stop the diff bolt breaking don't tighten the bolt right up and then loosen it off when building the diff, just slowly tighten it up until it is right while in the car.

why should the screw snap when using the standard diff balls??!

this sounds pretty stupid to me, I've always used the HPI carbide balls and never had any issues with them.

BTW, I'm now using some (8) RDX spring washers instead of the standard diff spring, never had such a smooth and tight diff. Additionally you'll need a 1 - 1.5mm spacer instead of the 0.5mm black washer on top of the spring washers.
