I like to service my diffs about every 1-1.5 gallns of fuel. It's not the ring/ pinion grease that needs the service it's the silicone fluid inside it breaks down and becomes inconsistent.

X2 the Diff them selves need servicing over the R+P.....I personally use Bearing grease for the R+P Mesh...easy to apply and east to clean off.

I change the silicone diff fluids after 2-3 hours racing because it starts to break down from extreme stress/heat.

Default Wheel bearing grease.

I use the blue wheel bearing grease, it sticks on the gears better, but the lithium is fine. the diff fluid lasts longer if you use a little ticker oil. the center diff will last as long as the front and rear if you bump up the viscosity from 5 to 7 for example....but a gallon sounds about right. Don't forget to replace the bearings too.

thanks, do you apply the grease thinly on the gear/pinion mesh or just swab a large amount in there and just let the excess fling inside the gearcase.

excess will be flung off the first time putting down some power...so dont go overkill as it will just make cleaning the diff case harder when it comes time to rebuild.
