I have built several Spec-R Gear Diffs for other drivers and can say the Yokomo Diff is nothing like the Spec-R. The Pins holding the spider gears are superstron 3mm Steel compared to the cheap plastic thing in the Spec R diff. The gears are much smoother and the sealing is a lot stronger which all results in the diff beeing a lot stronger than the Spec R.

Hello Martin

For low grip condition, what degree of gear diff oil should we use? Thanks.

The usual hk online stores have them, but they're always out of stock. Depends on your luck really.

On low traction tracks I recommend using a ball diff as it generally gives you more traction.

for asphalt with atleast a fair amount of grip diffoil between 700 and 1000 is the range to use

As for my testing.

For low-power application (stock racing) the gear diff feels just like a balldiff does (as long as the geardiff is properly built and runs without noticable gears).
For modified i found the geardiff to be quite a handfull to drive and especially for low traction tracks I think it will be too much of a challenge to do proper runs on carpet. Therefore I think for modified / low traction tracks the balldiff is better.

I used 1000 oil in my diff, but you have to refill it every once in a while as it leaks.
