why does the diff screw break????? Carpet spec means foam tire and 19 turn is nothing special to rip the screw in half. Maybe this was posted before, but I just got mine and after 10 runs the front diff just went see-ya and broke in half.

You probably wrenched that sucker down a little too tight. Did you tighten it just until it wont slip?

I have been running the car for almost a year and have had not screws break. I too would think that it is from over tightening.
The Corally diffs in my opinion, take alittle more care when building, but when done right.....SWEET! I didn't rebuild mine for almost 4 months and they didn't need it then I just "freshened" them up for the nats.

Try using 6 cone washers the next rebuild. That will allow you to run the diff alittle on the tight side. It also allows for a finer adjustment.

Well, I broke one last weekend and whether or not some point in time I cranked it too much with my kungfu grip, that's another story.

Regarding getting the busted diff screw out.... I was on the phone ordering replacements parts for that with Jeff Brown the other day, I told him how I got the black plastic piece out.... and I'll let you guys know now.

If you are smoker, you are set... If not, go find a smoker buddy, borrow his lighter. Put a wrench across the diff 1/2, so you don't burn yourself, use the lighter to heat up the aluminum diff 1/2, the aluminum will expand faster then the plastic, and the black plastic "nut" should pop out fairly easily with some help after a minute or so of "cooking up". Then just spray the hot diff 1/2 with your trusty motor spray to cool off. That's what I did on Saturday when I had to get the busted screw out of the black plastic "nut".

Ok what is the part number for the black plastic nut??????????????
Cause I have three diff halfs with broken screws in them....And I could use them again.........
Don't ask how I broke three...ugly story and it was all about my mudd grubbers tightening too much in a hurry....while the diff was self loosening...
Those C clips need to be seated perfectly or that will happen....Expencive problem solving but now it is done...
