I've tried 100K, 200K and 300K. Haven't tried Putty yet. But Guy's at the club tried it. I really like the feel of 200K oil. and think putty is just a bit to stiff for my liking
But I think it makes the car a bit harder to drive on low grip conditions. It has more entry, and it has a bit mor rotation. But when driving to agressive, It's not that easy as a spool.
Also good thing is that it doesn't wear the front axles that fast at this twisty track we run.
When using putty. Use some oil, or else you will crush the grears. For Modified fill the whole diff up. For stock, use as much as you like.

Regards Robert

I used Kyosho 500k with good results. One thing I had to do was put a little 200k in the diff first and spin it by hand to get it in the teeth of the gears. The 500k was too thick to get into the small spaces in the diff gears.

I feel using oil is more consistent than the putty, I'm waiting on another diff so I can run them back to back. The putty seems to react to heating up and becomes thinner feeling. I've also had to re pack the diff twice in two weekends to keep the same feel. I don't plan on running a spool again anytime soon, the gear diff is so much easier to drive.

Anybody tried this stuff? How does it compare to the thicker grease?

http://www.badhorsie.com/products/diff-lock-grease.html

I used this stuff, and it's way thicker than 500k. I preferred its feel over the 500k in the front (on carpet).

I concur with the putty usage. Just doesn't seem like a good idea to be using a 'clay/playdoh-like' substance. How could that possibly be viscous enough to be consistent.......

I just had my local shop order up some of this: http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...-Locking-Putty

Has anyone tried this before? I'm now a little worried it just might turn the diff. into a spool. I guess I'm only out $3 if it doesn't work

I'm sure it will lock up your diff like a spool....just maybe alittle forgiving or easy on the universal joint..

you're right. "a" usually works just fine.... for the gear diffs.

The problem with running oil (no matter how thick) in a gear diff is that once the gears get the oil moving it becomes easier for the gears to rotate making it a little inconsistant. Gum on the otherhand bogs down the gears the faster they try to rotate making it behave more like a spool.......BUT the gears are not designed to withstand that type of load so can break (although not as often as the outdrives on a spool).

I think with oil it is easier for the diff to work at slow speed. At higher speed difference between left and right, the resistance seems to increase. Like stirring molasses. Easy to stir when slow, gets harder when trying to do it quickly. Antislip effect.
