Are you destroying the internal gears or the ring/pinion on the outside?

I'm pretty sure that the Hot Bodies Lightning Stadium Pro-R Hardened diff gears should work. Make sure to get the hardened ones though. The hot bodies ring and pinion also works on the crt.

What thickness of diff fluid are you using ? If to thin it will diff. out big time in grass and over heat your diff.
