they are delrin,the black ones are like plastic.
i wasnt sure if you meant the x-ray diffs were lighter and stronger!
the x-ray diffs should be heavier becuase of the metal outdrives but i dont actually know for sure!

Team Atlas makes some self-adhesive diff seals for the 415 now.
They made the same for the 414 also.

Don´t know if it´s different with the 415 but with my EVO3 the black and white diff halves are same in weight.

i'd probably look at doing somehting for the thrust bearing (eg. losi) before doing much else, as it has a massive impact on the smoothness of the diff. the 415's thrust assembelly seems to be especially prone to dirt buildup.

Lycan you an use a standard chassis screw that is long enough to accomodate your droop settings. I have seen this on Satoshi's car in the past. Not sure if it was due to the same drilling through or a larger footprint of the screw.
