Why don't you try the cover decal instead? Very simple and light solution to prevent dust entering into the diff.

Any suggestions?

By the way...serpent website is featuring some new Ti goodies for the S400...

S400's dominate RC Barn Thanksgiving race. taking TQ, 1st, 3rd in the A and 1st in the B.

Excellent showing by all and showing how well these cars do in average "joes" hands.

I just saw on redrc that serpent have (or are about to) release a gear diff for the rear of this car.

Will be interesting to see how a modern TC performs with a gear diff.

Hello Bender, I've tried the gear diff during the Xceed Challenge last weekend, it's just magic with lot of power

Hmmm, that gear diff looks like a good way to fix my diff issues of having to rebuild twice a race day.

What weight diff oil did you use? Also was this a rubber or foam race?

This Xceed Race was on Rubber Tires.
I also used the gear diff at this race... super driving and no need to rebuild after 2 or 3 runs.
I have been running this diff the entire weekend without any problems.

I used 3000 diff lube.. but everyone was using something else preferred to their driving.

Gear diff, this is an awesome development, if it can make the car handle the same as a ball diff without the wear issues.

Also at only 5 grams heavier than the ball diff thats an excellent result, i will definately be excited to see it work out well.
