Default My opinionated answer to the DIFFERENTIAL ISSUE!!!

With nothing left to do yesterday after a morning fishing trip I decided to TOTALLY tear down my E-maxx & Mini E-Revo and fix/repair/replace/upgrade everything I saw fit... Taxes were good to me this year (new baby) and so I had some extra spending money... I could post two pages worth of upgrades for both vehicles, but I'll keep this post on a diet... Bottom line is......

Before reconstruction of both vehicles I Cleaned & Filled the differentials (F&R) (both E-maxx & Mini Revo) with synthetic grease... WOWZERS!!! I do not care for a down and dirty explanation on the matter really... But *FOR ME* it totally changed how they drive/feel/handle.. And for the better! Believe me.. Most of my other upgrades were RPM parts & such.. But greasing the diffs is definitely (IMHO) the way to go... So for a question I see once a week on here, YES! Grease your diffs. Haha..

Did you pack your diff with the synthetic grease like talking the diff gears out and than putting the gears back in ? I have some Mobil 1 red synthetic grease maybe i should try it in my 2wd slash . But that kind of grease seem to fling off though at least when you apply it to the outside of the diff gears.

I packed the diffs internally and filled the diff cases as well... This was some thick THICK grease... I figured if I didn't like the handling I would just clean it out and go with something else... But it is literally a night-day difference... Very pleased with the outcome... The tires really hook up and it gives it that "limited slip" feel...
