Good call guys. Thanks. Now that you say that Im sure thats my problem. Was thinking about getting some new dif cases anyway to try to fix this issue. Its to late tonight to pull them all break them down, clean them and glue them then put it all back together. Gotta be up to head to the track in 6 hours, so I'll order a set of cases and do this on the new parts.

Thanks again. Saved me the trouble shooting time.

Tore my truck down tonight and found 6 seized bearings - the big ones on the front diff, and one set on a front axle and one. On the rear. Gotta make a shopping list for replacements.

Any hope of "fixing" a seized bearing by blasting it out with wd40? Or is it easier to just replace the stock bearings?

So we glue the inset in with CA glue, that's it?

Hi Guys,
I am about to buy some upgrades for my scte. Budget is $250. What would be the best performance increase for the buck? Currently it is all stock chassis with chrispins, MMP, castle 1410 and a soon to have nanotech 6000. I was thinking the TLR chassis and tuning kit. Any other better combinations? Titanium links instead of the tuning kit? Also, what spare's would be suggested? Haven't broken anything yet in a handful of races but I'm sure its only a matter of time.
Thanks

yes, it will stop the diff fluid from seeping out around it and also it will keep that insert from slidding into the diff case like some of us had it do previously.

I pulled the bearings out of my Castle 1410 and they measure 5X14X5mm. Just thought I would share this info in case anyone else needed to replace theirs. You can get them here http://www.vxb.com/page/bearings/PROD/5mm/605ZZ30-1 .

In addition to the glueing I suggest using some thick grease, e.g. LOSA99203 below the o-ring and in the groove on the outdrives.
