I believe RC America just recieved a shipment and I believe that the new bulkhead clamps were in the order... I would check with your favorite hobby shops over the next few days and order them!

What's the verdict with the gear diffs?
Do they make the car handle any better than the ball diff?
Are there less rebuilds with the gear diff and are they consistent?
What I'm getting at is are they worth the investment?
I'm asking because they were the hot topic, but it seems there is hardly any talk of them now.

definitely the way to go these days... the guys at local track even run front and rear gear diffs now when running mod motors.

no more worries on diff slipping, and less rebuild frequency... as long as no gear diff oil leak, they are consistent.

I am loving my gear diff. I think part of the reason there was a stir earlier was people were figuring them out and trying different combinations/designs/oils. Now that many of them are being run in cars and people have sorted them out there's no more talk because the diffs are doing exactly what they are supposed to. I've had my NT1 modded gear diff in my boosted 17.5 '11 for several months with no maintenance and it feels as smooth as the day I built it and it hasn't leaked a drop. Worth every penny when you consider the time and effort I would have spent in that time period rebuilding diffs and replacing thrusts and sanding rings etc.

I don't personally feel any performance difference between a freshly built ball diff and the gear diff. The advantage comes when the ball diff wears in and becomes less than optimal but not bad enough for me to want to rebuild.

Are you running them in the front & rear?

Cool JB.

No front diff yet, but it is on my wish list. I run 12th primarily, and a spool in lower grip conditions can be tricky at times, although I do believe a touch faster if you can hang on to it over a balll diff up front. I am hoping the gear diff with the right oil up front will give me an in-between, providing a little easier to drive car without giving up the forward bite and steering.

Check that the shocks are even side to side etc.
Remove shocks from wishbones and make sure the wishbones move freely.

I would dismantle the corners of the car and rebuild, taking care that nothing is binding etc.

I wish. I'm 3 for 3 so far this year with going to race outdoors and having it rain.
