Default Diff on the slash

Is there a way to adjust the rear diif so that it will not just spin one wheel in the corners all the time.Like the old ball diffs that you could tighten a little so it wasn't one wheel peel as bad

I didn't think the Slash had a seal fluid diff. There is an article in a magazine this month about making into a homemade sealed fluid diff.

It doesn't, but this is exactly what Slayden recommends - 100K diff fluid - says there will not be enough of a leak for you to notice. He advised not to trying anything lower. He said it would def help.

This is posted in one of Slayden's tip column's on traxxas.

Gotcha.. Thanks for the clarification.

There is an article this month in one of the big magazines that has a DIY on making the diff into a seal unit so you can use different fluid weights.

Guys Hot Racing makes a new Locked diff for them and I see also that Traxxas now has a Pro Ball diff part number # 2520.
