Questions?? tao5 v2 rear diff slipping

My tao5 v2 rear bal diffs or diff plates keep slipping out of place causing me to take apart the diff and re aligning the dif plate with the ball diff pulley.
is this normal? what can i do to prevent this?
I do have a 17.5 with boost and turbo set to the max, runs fine. exerts lots of torque and power, maybe this has something to do with it?:/

Hey Ryan, you could rebuild the diff with new diff screw, nut, spring etc...

or

You could just get a gear diff and not worry about that anymore

I would Def go gear diff more steering 0% of slipping and I recommend 1000wt oil its Clement by the way.

You think?!

17.5 boosted is for all intents mild modified power. Either buy the aluminum diff joint or get a gear diff. The stock diffs are for silver cans and GT2 racing.

Gird up the loins of your car.
