Do not use the shims for the bearings, if you do, it will be to tight and bind the bearings. You need to open the centers of the outdrive to accept the bone, a 1/4" drill bit works. Very lightly sand the blades to allow them to move freely in and out of the outdrive.

I used quite a bit of grease on the outdrive where it slots into the housing and on the o rings and that stopped the leaking until the grease got spun out or dissolved into the oil.

I have a few quick questions on Gear Diffs.

1 What are the benefits?
2 What is the benefits if used F/R
3 What is the benefit if the rear is gear diff and the front ball(and vise versa).

I have 2 Spec R diffs any help would be great.

To prevent the leaking, fill it up only 20% and use thicker oil like 20,000 diff fluid.

I've been using the Spec-R GearDiff for Xray T3 for the last month and have had zero problems. I followed the directions by lightly sanding the gears. I think the trick is not to make it perfect but get the gears flat so they run true. The diff will feel tight at first but after a couple easy laps, it will be perfect.

I also used Associated Green Slime on the o-rings. Also lightly sanded the edges of the diff cases where they come together to get them flat for solid contact.

Pour the old oil into the trash, spray out the gears and housings with motor spray. Let dry. To be extra careful, it would be a good idea to disassemble it so to get all old oil/dirt out.
