Default Spec R gear diff leak

Hi guys, sorry I made a new thread for this, struggled finding the specR one i have seen nocking around before....


I'm just wondering if anybody has a solution to this leak I got on my new geardiff tonight?

Its leaked I think where the two main halves attach together, through the gasket I guess...

(is there supposed to be a gap between the two parts? It looks like the teeth should go all the way across but it does not reach to the other side of the 'pulley')

It's leaked quite alot, its got all over the belts, lipo chassis, etc so thought i'd just ask if anybody has a good fix?

Regards,
Andy

Take a look at the videos on the spec-r website they will help a little. I finally gave up and got some gasket sealer at the auto parts store....now it only leaks from the outdrive seals.

Welcome to gear diffs...

Silicone RTV or gasket sealer from the auto parts store. Green slime on the X-rings.

This is about all you can do and they will still leak a little, Expect just as much maintenance if not more than a ball diff.

I got gasket sealer/maker also. That gap is from the stock gasket, which I dont use. I just use the gasket sealer/maker and so far no leaks, and its gets rid of that gap ur talking about also
