Avoid the option carbon axle, it breaks if you look at it wrong.

The Schumacher gear diff, have built two of them and 0 leakage so far. I feel the design is more leak-proof than the Xray and it is less than half the cost. The main downside is the largest spur is 88T.

The Arrowmax diff, in my opinion, is junk. I have fitted an Awesomatix gear diff to an F1 car as well and it is good too, but a little more work than the Xray/Schumacher diff.
Thanks for the insight. The Schumacher diff does seem like a better option given the price is half of the xray and arrowmax. Doing a bit more research on the arrowmax diff and seems like everyone thinks they are junk, be it fitment issues or just right out design flaws. I do see they have an updated version of their gear diff recently. No report/reviews yet tho. I didnt even know awesomatix have an gear diff option for an F1, I should check it out too.

I haven't found that to be the case and I've run my car indoor carpet and outdoor asphalt all last year and never had one breakage. That was with running 4 full days at the asphalt on road nationals as well.

Is there a 64 pitch spur gear option for this?

88t is the largest so far. They have an 80t also.

Had a minor crash after a traction roll that even a carbon Xray diff axle would survive better. Wondered why there was a slight wobble on the diff and found out it fractured where the steel part is pinned in.

I run on an asphalt track with a ball diff and so far its been great, but would like to give gear diff a try
I have a Fenix gear diff, but replacement spur gears are outrageously expensive

Got the Schumacher diff and tried it out over the weekend. The build went smoothly and it felt really good on track. It felt really consistent and dont feel it slip when I mash on the throttle. I could actually feel the acceleration. The only crash I had was rolling the car over once when I got too close to the curb, nothing too serious I thought. But when I went back to the pits and gave the car some throttle I can feel a huge vibration and see the wobble in the wheel. Looking at it more closely it seems like the shaft is bent. I didnt check if it was straight out of the bag, but the only thing that could of contributed to the shaft being bent is that roll I had. I tried bending it back as best I can and I got it to the point where the vibration is acceptable and the car still drove ok.

I might get a spare shaft and see if that fixes the problem or see if it really bends that easily. Silver lining is that there were absolutely no leak with the diff whatsoever which I am very happy about.

That is a bummer to hear you bent the axle. I heard of another who bent the stock steel axle. I haven't bent mines....yet...

Yeah, sucks it bent just after the first pack. Totally wasnt expecting this. Ive had bigger crashes with the Exotek steel axle and never had any issues.

Good thing my friend is going back to UK for a month for Christmas and he said he can help me get parts, and replacement shaft arent too expensive. I just hope its a one off incident. Not really viable if I have to replace the shaft every time I roll the car.

Got to get softer wheels to absorb some of the impacts and save the axles...
