i tried injecting glue stick using glue gun and the gear diff became a spool and soooo much power when accelerating. but the car is a bit understeer but when turning you shud apply a load at the throttle to counter the understeer..

A good way to stiffen a gear diff and still have some action is pack it with the Tamiya Anti-wear grease (the silver gray one) works great

FDR with 20t pinion is 5.8:1.

No idea of roll out, I've managed to avoid knowing about that for years and I hope to continue being in the dark there...

Hi StoneMan, will this be stiffer than packing it with serpent cleaning gum? I'm currently running mine with TA03 balldiffs but will try this on my next outing..

Never tried the Serpent Gum. I pack the diff almost full with the AW. It's stiff but still has action. My track (Fastcats) has sweeping turns and no sharp ones. Some use a one-way. I like the feel of the grease.

thanks for that core creations
serpent gum is messy, AW packed in works the best and is TCS LEGAL
U must use the plastic sealed main bearings as the aw leaks out

Probably a dumb question, but what is AW?

Thanks,

Scottrik

AW - Anti Wear Grease, comes in a little round tube with a new diff. It's thick gray grease that you can pack into your diff to stiffen it up.

There is one that fits but it isn't TCS legal. They seem to allow it in Canadian TCS though. I believe it's the TA03 one-way part #53200. Someone who races Canadian TCS will know more about it but if you use it...you will have ZERO brakes.
