I will have to retire my GTP2E if I cannot find one. Please help my GTP2E live on! Haha

Questions?? Diff cups get hot?

Is it normal for a diff cup (the ones the center shafts go into) to get pretty hot after a couple blasts up and down my street?

My setup is Neu Castle 2200kv, Mamba Monster 2, 6s, geared 36/29 (3.89 FDR)

probably not... if your fluid is too thin, you could be cooking your diff:

Im running stock diff fluid in front and stock grease in the rear. The rear diff cup gets hotter than the front but only if I get on it hard up and down my street. I have also had 4 or 5 diff pinion bearings explode!

Default My solution to hot diff cups

I tried adding a 5mm shim in between the diff cups and bearing just to give the bearings some room to disipate some of the heat and it seems to have done the trick. The diff cups stay much cooler now. They still get a little warm but not nearly as hot as they were before the shims.
