Ultra Lube 4x White Lithium grease works great also. It stays put and runs cool.

Another one to add to the list is the Team Associated "black" grease. The stuff sticks like glue but still flows like a heavy oil.

Here's the shield I build and glued some thermal radiant barrier on top. I line my garage door with this stuff and during the 100+ degree Houston summers it dropped my garage temp by 12-15*. Two weekends ago I blew another rear diff and the temp was just over 200* when I pulled it off the track. Going to test this Saturday with the new shield and radiant barrier. Will post results.

Can you post pic of what the diff looked like and what the pinion shaft looks like
Cheers

Actually I can't post pics of the casings since I've thrown them away. But what I can tell you after blowing up 5 of them is that they get so hot internally that the inner bearing housing begins to melt and the bearing starts pushing forward into the housing. Doesn't take long for the shaft to start floating around and completely destroy the inner bearing. The outer bearing remains intact and unaffected. The strange thing that me and Marcus cant figure out on my car is that after blowing up 5 diffs the ring and pinons were perfectly fine and reusable. Didn't do any damage to them at all. I suspect they've been heat treated and/or salt bath nitride treated. The only thing I've had to replace each time is the front half of the diff case and the inner bearing. So far I have averaged 12-15 tanks of fuel before blowing a diff running in 60-75* weather. I will grab a few of the ring and pinion sets and take pics so you can see that they are unaffected. HOWEVER...I do believe that each time Marcus had one blow it did tear up his ring/pinion set.

Hey champ thanks for your reply
I pulled down my rear diff yesterday to do some re grease of bearing( I've done 10+ tanks) and after all the talk of rear diffs melting. I found discolouring or maybe heat on the outside pinion shaft bearing.

I got some high temp lithium grease from work
