i have seen on oople that most are using 650cst shock oils in there gear diffs

might be worth a try

i too have 1 on the way as i am not a ball diff fan but not sure what i will build it with either right now grease or shock oils

On a side note anyone tried rear anti roll bars yet with really soft springs?
+1 for the BFast diff setup. Buttery goodness!

But in my opinion ( and some others ) a gear diff should not be used on dirt. a ball diff gives the buggy better handeling.
a gear diff cant slip.

indoor carpet and surface like that is where a gear diff could be used.

I run the gear diff just because Im lazy in rebuilding balldiffs
With all of the cars we run (mostly my brother), proper maintenance can be tough to keep up on. Ever since we started using the BFast kits in the 210 the diff maintenance is virtually nonexistent. He will wear out the outdrives on his buggy before the diff needs service- it's really quite unbelievable how long their diffs last if you build them right. I won't run anything else in our cars, period.

Where can you get the BFast diff setup for the dex210?

Do you need the whole kit, or just rings? If it's the kit, which balls are people having success with?

I have a Tacky engine assembly lube in mine. Just enough to coat the gears a little bit and its working very well for me.

Yeah me too. I have zero experience with ball diffs and the whole break in and how to properly build them. I prefer the K.I.S.S. approach of a gear diff.

So with AE black grease, it's pretty much a light coat on the gears and that's about it?

Why does that make your head spin? Carbide is really the only diff ball that works in the diff and the ceramic thrust assembly is for smoothness and durability. The stock TD diff rings are perfectly flat and smooth.
