I followed the procedures like what it says but still, no smoothness when I turn the other side of the wheel... Anyone tried this already???
Whats seems to be problem?

I use TA05 diff pulley, 501x plates and carbide balls and it was fine.

What crease did you use? I usually do my diffs with AE diff and black crease.

TA05 pulley #51212

I used the grease that came with the kit of my 05ms... Can you take some pics of the inner side of your diff (16 ball version) =, I want to see how you did it... Must be clear cause the one in the tut is so bright, couldnt see that much how smooth he did it...

Sir cruisaaja, No worries anymore sir about the 16 balls ball diff... I got it working smoothly now and there is no problem... What is bothering me right now about the diff is that when I turn the diff at one side, it is smooth then suddenly for 1 sec, there would be a sound like there is something stuck inside but not that often, only for sometimes... Opened and checked it, remove some dirts and plastic that I scraped of then tried it again, for a long time, I thought it was gone but then suddenly it came back... So do you guys think it is only a dirt or anything that I shouldnt worry about??? I just noticed it is kinda half open (the balls) so it is really prone to getting dirt inside the diff balls and diff... Am I right???

Pics will follow, just charging my digicams batteries... Hehehe...

I use associated black grease for the thrust bearing, and the white stealth grease for the balls. I sand the diff rings on a flat surface like glass. I do get that intermittent "heavy" feel sometimes. I just take it apart and rebuild it if that happens and it usually goes away. I also use diff seals to keep all that grime from getting into the balls. I raced about 5 races with it, and it's still smooth like new.

Hey guys, just want to share the 16 balls ball diff configuration that I made... It is very smooth compared to those normal diffs that we build... As in very smooth... Like what someone mentioned somewhere, I think in the trf415 thread, it is smooth like butter...

Can anyone offer a performance and setup comparison of the 05MS compared to a 415MS or MSX?... what setup specs changed etc?

I am in a real bind trying to decide whether to upgrade my 415MS to an MSX or MSXX or buying a 05MS (or a HB Cyclone but thats a totally different matter)

Thanks!

Guys, did you cut off some portion of the steering arm so that the belt wouldn't touch it or did you guys just leave it as is???

And why can't I lock the diff anymore that much, It tend to not turn anymore, it like turning on the same thread (do you get what I mean)..? What seems to be the problem??? Is it the long screw or the nut???

Thanks in advance...

No, but we agree at Chris can do that when he has extra time
