Default How can i block diffs???

hi boys.i want to know how can i block-spool a center diff.
i had read in a mag sometime ago for a piece that you can put in the diff case as reasult to block it.[but i cant find this mag now]
some other way is to replacy the case with an axle but keep the same diff gear.
do you know guys a company with these products?
Thanks in advice!

JB Weld...It will lock a diff, just mix it an pour it in, I think everone here wants to know what for? They might be able to give better advise if you kinda explain what you wanna do.

When I run dirt oval, I put 100,000 diff oil in the center of my Superlate(1/8 scale buggy converted to latemodel). It worked pretty good for what I was doing at the time. I have heard of the JB Weld thing but I always wondered what happens when you need to change your center diff bearings?

You dont change them. Nothing is spinning inside the diff when it is locked, including the center bearings.

Really??? Bearings don't spin?? I guess I they just float in air? I guess there is no need for the center diff support either.................WOW!! I would like to see a pic of that!!!
