Thanks for the reply back Casper. There are experienced racers, and they all have said switch to gear diff. LOL! I did however get a lesson on slipper clutch setting. Very informative and dooley noted. I won't forget. I got my slipper set correctly and then measured the bolt distance that was portruding past the slipper nut so at least I have a starting point. But this was after I barked my gear diff. so we'll see how long it lasts! I suppose my issue was not tightening the ball diff. down enough, barking it & in the process glazing my pads while setting my slipper. Before I had the slipper lesson I tempd my motor and it was hotter than ever before, 160, yikes (19 pinion, 84 spur. 6.5 turn) normally around 120 degrees. Lesson learned, slipper is very important, learn to do it or have Mark from GofastRacing (Batavia Ohio) set it for me. I prefer to learn to do it myself, hate bothering folks if I don't have to, they want to race too! What I have found is that it is extremely hard to listen to your motor/diff and slipper on the track when everone is racing. Hearing is pramount but it's all about the feel. I just haven't honed in my super jedi rc feeling powers yet.

Wow, good to see! I stripped an idler on Sunday, it's only the 2nd one I've stripped since I put the truck together, but it's nice to not have to worry!

For those of you looking to get this, it works great, just keep in mind, you will want to put some grease seeing as you will now have a metal to metal gear contact. Some good lithium grease or I have even use green lube in a bind with good success.

That's crazy this is just now surfacing.. I read about this same idler gear, sometime back in early Feb this year, with the same part number and everything..

I think you guys might have a mole inside, Ryan!!

Same thing here - one of the fastest racers at our track uses a gear diff in his stadium truck and his short course truck. Even beats team guys with them...

I must say Frank these 22 diffs are difficult.......I have been racing for 20 years, I could build a xxx series diff in my sleep and make them last for a very long time, these 22 diffs have be baffled to the point I am thinking of throwing the gear diff in and being done with it, I have watched the tlr video dozens of times, I have even(i hate to say this) tried the associated diff screw thrust bearing and spring. That did make it a little better but man it gets frustrating when your diff goes out after only a couple race days. I dont even run mean motors, 13.5 blinky in 22b, 22t and 22sct, the 22b diff is holding fairly well but the other two .......sheesh.

The track I race at in the summer was so bumpy and rutted out I actually thought about putting a hydra drive on my 22sct. My buddy still has a couple, if we could have found a decent gear i would have given it a shot......LOL

Anyone know if the AE 30wt oil is the same viscosity as the TLR 30wt oil?

Assoc 25wt shock oil = 27.5 TLR/Losi oil.
so, 30wt assoc. will equal 32.5 TLR oil.
thats what I have been told.

sucks that its like this. of course I learned about the difference a week after i went out and bought all the associated oils. oh well.
associated's oil is made by Lucas oil, so it should be good.

Agreed, was wondering why my 30wt shocks felt stiff... now I know why lol. was using TLR 32.5 equivalent.
