I set the ball diff according to the Team Associated TC4 instructions. Just barely tighten the thrust bearing bolt to where the diff doesn't slip. Usually a 1/4 turn CCW from where the bolt feels "tight".

IMHO, as a mechanical engineer, I believe that "tightening" a ball diff past the point where it stops slipping does not increase its limited slip capabilities, it simply destroys the diff balls, the diff rings, the thrust washers and balls.
