Could you share your experience with the gear diff in GT-R? I currently run one in F1 but wasn’t sure if it would be worth turning the extra rotational mass on 1-cell. Thanks!!!

That's all I run indoors with the 92 spur. I was around when the orginal Delta diff came out and know in the corners it really works great. I also use it in the Pemberton Busch Class 6 cell oval. To me also on the starts I always beat the car in front of me with the traction I have.
I would make sure you put a good big drop of 100,000 on each of the spider gears. Check every two weeks - I'm lazy and do I once a month - raced every sunday. Get a spare gear and side plates. Some guys are using 500,000 but I have not. Have been using both of them for over a year.

How does 500k and 1million compare to Tamiya diff grease in viscosity?

Standard sphere greases (from best to worst) have nothing to compare with "hard" syrups like 300K or harder.

Until Fenix will release his own series of greases (soon or later will do it) I suggest you to stay on reliable brands: Hudy, Mugen, Xceed have those hard stuff.

The reason I asked about Tamiya vs 500k or 1mil was that my diff had Tamiya gear diff grease in it. But I bought some 500k and 1mil so I could try them out. I have 1mil in it now. I'm having a traction roll problem in and out of fast turns and sweepers. I can adapt my driving style but slows me down, I want to carry more speed and get on the throttle sooner. I am putting in the Chris Sanchez set up at windy city on my Mistral and looking forward to faster laps this weekend.

The gear diff won't solve the traction roll problem nor will it solve diffing out. Try this, soften up the side springs and the tube lube to 10k or less. If it is still doing it here is a radio adjustment that might help. Put in a little positive expo to flatten the steering curve around center (Spektrum is positive to do this). When traction really comes up I just start bumping it in. I might add a little dual rate to still turn the corner as fast as possible, kind of a balancing act. Good luck

On this matter, we've just released a lighter version for those applications. Of course, fit F1 and 1/12 as well.
I believe it could handle easily 13.5 2s, but would like to test it better before write it on a stone

For aft53
DGD-B is your version, as use 1/4" (aka 6.35mm) axle

so where is the sweet spot? Do you want to be able to move the diff a bit with thumb or just a bit tighter?
