Default XRAY 008 diff question....

I have a T2008 w/alum. diff. the problem Im having is the diff keeps loosening as I race. This is the first time this has happened. I usually rebuild about every 3 race weekends and replace all internal parts except the diff screw including the thrust bearing and washers. Other than the diff screw the only thing not replaced is the nylon nut inside the short outdrive which can only be replaced by buying a new short outdrive. My rebuild procedure is to take apart, clean and put back together, slightly tighten the diff screw and reinstall in car. I then turn the trim on the throttle up and hold the wheel for about 5 minutes then check tightness and repeat if needed. Then when I get to the track do the final adjustment. Usually run Med. to med tight. Any info would be great.

The nut in the outdrive is worn out. Use a little loctite on the screw. If you replace all the parts everytime you do a rebuild,could you save the parts and send them to me.I just clean and regrease everything every second race day.Never had to replace anything.
