I agree that the diffs are unnecessarily hard to assemble. Im definitely going to get the longer screws for when I have to rebuild. Thanks to RCDAVE for the info.

You can also try the old white t nut with the nut cast into the plastic.

I remember with the old tc3 the spring needed a LOT of compressing with pliers before you put it in and tightened everything up. Maybe they still use the same spring

The longer bolt will make things easier but there shouldn't be any need to get them.
