I use a molytec silicon lube here in australia... Its rated to 200 degrees c and you can run the diff that free and it doesnt slip. Let me know if you cant get it and I will send some your way.
I dont have to replace balls and diff plates ever and it last about 10 to 15 races and then I rebuild. it takes 5 minutes to rebuild a diff and it costs me nothing but the lube.

I've tested several brands like associated, Schumacher, Hudy and found the new tamiya is slightly better.

The molytec sounds good but where to get it?

Thanks.

It all depends on who's diff it is and what motor is driving it...

some greases work better then others depending on the conditions...

Associated diff grease in the plactic squeeze tube (with black writing, not the red write) is very good for mild Mod's and stocks. Schumacher diff grease for all mod's... imo

I used to use the Hudy diff grease but recently tried some niftech. I really like the niftech stuff as the diff can be "tight" as in it wont slip, however when you rotate the tires its very free.
