Default MINI LST DIFFS

IM HAVING A PROBLEM WITH MY RING AND PINION GEAR(i think thats what it's called)STRIPPING OUT AFTER 5 MINUTES OF RUNNING .REPLACED ALL GEARS TWICE,AND STILL STRIPPING GEARS. IF ANYONE KNOWS OF STRONGER GEARS OR ALL METAL GEAR SETS I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE IT!

I've heard/read that soaking the plastic parts in water @170deg
for 20min "Helps" increase the resiliance and set the mold shape.
Some M-L.S.T.'s have bein "Boiled" New[not literaly]then re-built
with a brushless motor. No Plastic Failures! Stock Gears!?!

The "Boiling of My M/T Arms & Wheels Definatley Helps/Changes them,
the Shock Towers will bend out of place too much on T-Maxx too soon.
Like the L.S.T. Losi shock towers do.The Arms will Re-Flex further and the Wheels crack less 14mm ctr's but run Alum Adapters or the Hex will strip out,
Like the Losi Beadlock phony's

I Beat a Ball Diff to Death in M-L.S.T. Lot #509 no Gear Problems.
Am Looking for Greases? to Tune the Diffs
