i just read from somewhere that the diff have to be so tightened so that it doesn't move in the opposite direction. u know wat m saying? d diff that comes with my yokomo kit are already assembled, so i didn't make anymore adjustment on it liao. however, i just found out tat it needs to be so tightened that when u the right rear wheel, the left rear wheel should move in the same direction, not in the opposite. so is this the case?? pls help.

when you turn one wheel the other wheel should move in the opposite direction, that's what a differential does. You want the diff tight enough that it doesn't slip, meaning the the diff gear moves and the wheels don't, that's bad and will melt your diff gear.
