I think they equate to the yellows from 53440, hence the yellow marks

I've just got my MS too, I am going to run ball diffs F and R, I'll run what
I'm used to first.

I think and have read that aw grease too sticky for the balls, but good for the thrust bearings or the moly grease.

I use the Tamiya ball diff lube on the balls and I've tried both AW and Moly in the thrust bearings, with no problems.

I don't claim to be TA05 epert

Lets
Cheers

The blue Tamiya turnbuckle wrench makes it easier to hold the turnbuckle than the one they supply you with in the kit.

I don't think your diff will engage optimally with the anti-wear grease on your diff balls. Your kit should have contained a small tube of diff grease.

Turn it the other way, turnbuckles have one rigth threaded side and one left threaded side.
