Default Front Gear Diffs with oil/putty users - Pls explain!!!

Seems like Gear Diffs are now heading towards the front. Some run 500000 weight oil and some a combination of cleaning putty & oil. Can someone with the know care to explain further

It's like a spool.

Dan, I haven't tried the putty in a front oil gear diff. I have used and still use the 500 000 wt oil in my mini. In TC in the front I have only tried 50 000 wt oil. I will be trying 100 000 wt oil next.

If you use the putty, I believe you will traction on one axle faster than the other and would make a mini harder to drive. I have used a bevel gear diff in the MO5 filled with blue tack and then used the nitro cleaning gum and found the car would never track consistantly straight. Just my thoughts and I know I wouldn't use them again.

In the rear I am using either 700 or 1000 wt oil oil. My TC's are a MI4LP and a BD5WX.

Later,

Calvin.

Its quite like a spool, I run with a gear diff in the front with putty - you get the best of both worlds!

Faster entry corner speed than a spool, quicker exit speed than a standard diff.

On an out and out fast lap, the spool is still probably slightly quicker but much harder the drive, the gear diff is much more forgiving adding consistency in a race.

Gear diffs are not really being used in the UK but I was at a pretty big meeting a couple of weeks ago, i was the only person running a gear diff and ended up winning the event.

I'd never EVER go back to a spool!! EVER!
