Which ones are you talking about? Because 3Racing sells plastic/delrin cups with aluminum sleeves.

I normally just use ball diff grease on the rings and don't have any slippage issues. Is this a new kit? If so, did you "prepare" the diff spring by squashing the spring down with a pair of pliers or multi-grips?

Really... if you do a bit of reading on the plates (it's on the website ) it says the sheets are 7mils thick, which actually comes out at 0.18mm... so naff all affect on the ride height really

I'm not running one, but would be sorely tempted when the outdoor season rolls around again...

Yep, prepped the spring. Sanded the rings. Ive rebuilt it again and will test again
Thanks

Usually after a rebuild, I get a lot of loosening after the first two runs. I think it's cause the diff balls are cutting a groove into the freshly sanded diff ring. Either that or the new diff-spring is breaking in. Give it another shot.

Also, try adjusting the diff by holding the spur and one rear tire, while trying to turn the other rear tire.
