a few months ago I put a front one way in my TA04,

Hi Rod, in the xray thread we have been talkin about this very thing (some time bak though) the arguement was put forward that some lubes would be to slippery and cause teh one ways to slip.. or the outdrives to slip in the bearings themselves (i didnt understand what they were getting at.. oh well)

but i use associated stealth diff lube, and have never had a problem with slippage ..

so i think ur ball diff grease shoudl be fine. the main thing i do is make sure they are cleaned out every now and then to make sure no dust and junk can clog and for tehm to seize..

For the TA04 one-way, you do not need grease the bearings. I had ran one without grease for over 1.5 years. If it gets dirty, I spray the bearings with motor spray and re oil with bearing oil.

I've raced with a HPI one-way pulley for 1 year - never maintained it at all, and it still perform well.

HPI one-way diff: From time to time, I clean it for carpet dust and grease it with HPI one-way grease. This also works well.

Case is, that the HPI diff is more open, than the HPI pulley, which is well protected.

you can run one way grease if you want, or you can run it dry, either way is fine i guess. but i wouldn't think diff grease would do the job really, a specific one-way grease is what's needed. i personally run mine dry without any problems. either way you should spray it out every now and then, but other than that, no maintenance is needed (for the average racer anyway).

now, back to that avatar...

Here's what I do. Blow it our cleanly with motor spray and lightly put a drop of two of royal oil and insert the diff cups and spin it for awhile and it's back in business and very smooth.
