I dont get why people are having so much trouble with their diffs? Are you guys rushing thru the build? I spend at least 30 minutes building 1 ball diff. I make sure everything is super super clean with motor spray, wiping everything down with clean paper towels. I use motor sprayed q-tips to finish the cleaning.

I've got maybe 35 runs on my ball diffs with no slipping and no broken diff screws. Following the instructions and taking your time is so key.

Steve,

Any idea if the onroad HB team guys use the stock ballstuds or do they get optional Ti ones.

Thanks for the input.

It's kicker (or activator), in this case made by Rush, but really any type will do.
It helps the CA glue run easier and dry faster.

That is what I would like to know too why am I having such a hard time with Cyclone diff. Perhaps I have been running Xray for so long and was expecting the same quality and design.

If this was my first diff I would agree with you about rushing to put it together. But my first hand on building the diff was with Serpent 6000 back in 80ís, so I guess I can say I have been building a few more diff since then.

Cyclone diff couldnít need more time to put it together then Xray, Kyosho, Tamiya and the rest of the kits available today. 35 runs on a single rebuilt sound impressive but if you try to run Xray diff you would say WOW 150 runs so and it still smooth like a butter.

Iíll figure it out one way or the other.

Use the stock gold up front and sliver rear will work good on most track and then fine turn it from there

iceman 76 Thank you.
I have been using gold and silver but some are talking about soft and super soft as well as yokamo yellow. I'm willing to try anything, I have been using 30w and 35w oil for some time now and have used up to 45w and 50w.
We are still racing carpet rubber but my track lazerspeedway.com opens in May so my Cyclone setup will change back to outdoor, I ran gold and silver springs last year and after trying everything from 12lbs to 25lbs rear and 17lbs to 35lbs front i"m back to stock springs on the carpet.. LOL I cant believe the same springs work everywhere but they seem to LOL
