I changed back to ball diff after trying the gear diff with 5000 wt. I used the stock balls,,, I know,,, thinkin they wouldnt last. Ive gotten 4 race days with them and they still feel good. And i didnt even break in the diff.. Im going to use ceramic balls next rebuild. Ive been using ceramic balls on my 22, and gotten at least 8 race days out of them without a rebuild. Still feels good. But i know it needs cleaned. Ive been building ball diffs for 20+ years, so i know what im talikn about!
5,000 wght....are u runnin on carpet? That seems thick to me but hey, im used to 1/8 gears that are smoother than most 1/10 balls too...
Ive used 1300 and 2000 in an sc10 and it was pretty dialed on our club track...doesnt hurt to try a gear diff especially when its free other than a few minutes of wrenchin swappin them around...
And every associated ball diff ive felt now was 100% dialed!! Losi's not so much...says either losi's are pretty #&itty or people who run losis are dumba$$'s kinda, rite...i love the 22t platform i gotta say though! Its pretty sick! Tough and thoughtout also...id like to try a bfast also, more for the extremely flat plates than the balls but all is good

I for one bougth the 22T for the purpose of using a gear Diff. Much consistent ( for me ) and doesnt requires that of a maintenance as compared to a Ball diff... just need the correct gear Oil though... its the leave it and forget it ... hahahah...

We have so much time spent cleanin/lubin bearings, shock oils and bleeding, and etc.etc on our cars that once u find a consistancy wether its grease or oil that works on ur track or for the conditions u operate in, its kinda dumb not to use a gear isnt it? Set it and forget it and "Kiss"(keep ot simple stupid) come into play and make things a whole lot more enjoyable imo!

It's all about setup between slipper and diff screw. I have seen guys ask why there brand new diff feels gritty, only to find they have the diff screw snugged down.

I prefer the B-Fast unit for my ball diff, they are always butter smooth and last 10+ race days. (with break in)

But if you guys want to go to a hassle free gear diff and have less then Top notch performance. Go for it.
+1 my Losi ball diff is buttery smooth, and I have 2 race days and multiple practice days.

Please ignore the ball diff hate comments.

There is nothing wrong with the stock Losi ball diffs.

I've been driving on stock diffs since day one without issue. It's all in the build and break in. They don't tolerate abuse well, but honestly, what ball diff does?

If you know what you're doing then you're golden. If you don't, please ask somebody who does know for help. Please stop badmouthing a product because of user error.

Default ball diffs

I have had my 22 buggy since last year and only rebuilt the ball diff once and I have ran on carpet all winter with no problems. On my 22t I bought it used with a gear diff so I can't comment on it but if you build the ball diff right and break it in on the bench before running there shouldn't be any problems

Thats the problem half these clowns bashing losi have no clue how to build a diff right and break it in. I havent built a diff in prob 3 years until my 22t. Built it, set it and practiced all day and then ran triple a mains and it it smoother than when I put it in. If your gonna bitch you better know what your talking about and make viable points which NONE of you have who have been complaining. And for the Shocks leaving, I am using the low friction orings and havent lost a drop of oil. These are 1/10 not 1/8 scale people they are gonna take a little more maintinance and are gonna break more if you drive them like an 1/8 scale

Funny how a $14.00 upgrade is getting so many people worked up, the stock diff balls are junk, sorry fanboys. But the upgrade cost is hardly enough to warrant calling a $280.00 rc car "junk".

All of you need to grow up, seriously.
