Who's managed to strip the little allen head screws yet? And how did you manage to get it out?

I stripped one, but luckily felt it going before it was all the way in. I got it out with pliers on the screw head.

If I stripped one when it was all the way in, I'd probably try slotting the head with a dremel, and using a screwdriver. I've never actually done that successfully on anything, though, so if someone else has a suggestion, listen to them.

Default Spec R fix the diff

Well after my son running the Spec-R gear diff in his Mi4-CX in mod for a few race meetings I have found that they are shit, the plastic gears can not hold up to the power that a 4.5 turn motor with boost and turbo can put to the ground, 4 drivers that were running the Spec-R diff on the weekend had them fail.

They either have the slot flog out were the pin sits or they just strip the side gear, 2 x 5min runs and thatís it, I can get a ball diff to do that.

Spec-R need to make some steel gears and fix the slop in cases were the out drives go in, on the Mi4 diff anyway, I checked a Tamiya diff and they did not wobble as much.

Regards
Gary

If you were at our track on the weekend you would have seen 4, We have tried a few oils, the best results have been with 1000 CST AE diff oil, mine leak bad from the out drives if I use the standard o ring, I have found by using a Agama shock o ring it did not leak on the weekend, but it only lasted two and a half runs before the gears went.

Regards
Gary

Use good amount AE Green Slime and the new o rings helps slow down the leaks a lot.

They are not good, yeah, but IMO that's because of the leaking and the weight. I run boosted 4.5, and I have never had a broken diff. I have even run a nearly dry diff (all oil leaked from the diff) and still not broken.

Hi roll small sized balls of cleaning putty about 2-3mm in size push it in and around the gears with a 2mm driver but only use enough putty as you would oil and put about 5 drops of thin diff or shock oil and your ready to roll.:-)

From what I have seen a putty diff works best when you pack as much in as you can. Mix it with a very small amount of oil so the putty loses that "sticky" feeling.

I don't know how most people go with this diff but I saw quite a few fail at an event this weekend. Medium grip with 4.5t motors in most cases.
