Default nitro evader tranny probs, please help!!!

Ok, here it goes. I just got dont rebuilding the tranny on my Nitro Evader. The problem that I am having is with the ball diff. I put it all together and it feels very gritty, like it's filled with dirt. Everything is newbut the gear itself, but it is perfect yet, the holes are not oblonged or anything. Nothing seems to be working to get it smooth, I even tried to switch the outdrive cups to no avail. Any help to get this resolved would be greatly appreciated. TIA. By the way, this is an awesome site. I have learnd a great deal on a lot of thing I couldn't figure out myself.

Nope, I don't even have it tight, I can spin the outdrives while holding the gear.

Lube the differential balls with some synthetic grease. A little lube goes a long way.

My differential blew apart. The hole where the bearings goes into completly ripped out. After re assembling it, it works better than new.

Thanks for the replies guys but I found the problem. It turns out that the thrust bearings and carier were defective. Got a new set and its golden now.

Yeah I have rebuilt the diff gear in my evader twice step by step and it still slips and the motor revs up. I try to adjust it time after time. Thats why I dont take it out anymore.
