Both cars are middle setting on caster,reducing caster will help with diffing out? I was thinking heavy tube oil or side springs,or tighter diff(its already pretty tight)but what do I know

Yes, reducing caster helps diffing out. I run .45 side springs and 10k or less in the tubes. Tightening the diff does not work, all it does is destroy diffs.

All brands of F1 cars are subject to diffing out. Usually the cure is in the front end. I have found that making the front end settings more aggressive (other than caster) helps the problem. Also it can be cured simply by driving differently. F1 cars are not like the rest of the RC world and must be driven differently.

When your inside rear tire lifts mid corner allowing the diff to spin. You can usually hear it make a zipping type noise as all the power goes to the lifted wheel for a split second.
