If your slipper spool is built right but keeps loosening up change the bolt and nut. Re-assemble with a dab of thread lock on the end of the thrust bolt and wait a bit for the thread lock to set.

When built properly it should be quite hard to get the front wheels to rotate independently and it should stay that way in a race.
If you still have problems with the alloy nut and kit 2.56 bolt just replace these with 2mm stainless bolt of the same or slightly longer length and M2 stainless lock nuts; M2 Stainless lock nuts fit into the plastic holder with no issue (already tried and tested). This setup holds better and is less likely to strip! Both fit the TC5 or TC6 as a better replacement.

No ball diff fully tight, a ball diff is not made for this.

Hi!

Ball diff set as manual said and for front put diff oil 100k from nitro onroad.

Or lower value.

It will lock your diff
I did it for test some years ago to see how it can work for me with tc5 but for me is better solid axle.

Regards!

I can imagine thick, sticky oil all over the front of car...

A diff ball is ...well a diff ball, if you want to lock it, remove the balls!! but even this I would not recommand really, you will more than likely melt your gear if it slips a little.

The best is still a spool, not expensive piece of upgrade.

I am waiting for diff gear for the back. I do intend to try front ball diff with it too, so I will report later on I have tried it.

There should be 3 thicknesses of spacers in your kit. The thickest is 2 degrees. The thinnest in my kit was in a separate bag.

Hi!

Hm, this oil is really thick and you don't put it too much.

Also check for: Silikonfett 15.000cps, 15g Kyosho 96504
Kyosho do very thick silicon grease

Regards!

Default AE gear diff

When is the rumored AE gear diff coming out? I would really like to try one but I am just not wanting to modify my car to get a Yok or Spec-R to fit.

There are many of us on that list...no official dates but best guess from reading what I can find 1-2 months likely before we'll be able to get them. Diff / spool works pretty well too, hold out for the real thing IMO.

That is exactly what I was thinking.

I am converted. Ran them again yesterday. All day long and didn't have to touch them once.
