Try either the Corally or the Schumacher grease.

Schumacher diff grease is BY FAR the best diff grease I've ever used. It doesn't break down anywhere near as fast as others, so it gives very consistent diff action throughout the run. Plus it's like a wax... it doesn't fling off, so it last for a long time inbetween rebuilds as well.

Use Schumacher grease on the diff balls and rings, but always use Associated black grease on the thrust.

I spent the last week with Andy at IIC...we talked at length about diff greases. I am sure he likes the associated grease, but it was clear to me that Schumacher grease was his preference on diff balls and rings.

The Schumacher grease was great...I had been using in the past but was not using enough of it in the diff. Here is what I ended up doing:

Clean all of the diff parts prior to rebuild...sanded diff rings with 600 then 1000.

1)Smear the schumacher diff lub on the rings
2)Coat the diff balls with the schumacher diff lube (on a paper towel)
3)Put diff lub in each diff ball hole.
4)black associated grease on the thrust (should use a lot here)
5) Put the diff together and break it in slowly.

Well it's 2am, and I've finally finished a long drawn out search to figure out what the heck was tweaking my car so bad lately. I've noticed there was a tweak in mt car and no matter how many times I loosened all the bulkhead screws and tighten them back up, the car still had a twist.

As a result of my displeasure, I took apart the car entirely and slowly built it back up. Checking each piece of a sheet of glass to check to bent or tweaked parts. There were a few bulkheads in question, but that wasn't the case. It was a screw!!!! The screw itself was bent from some impact a long time ago. The bent screw was stressing the suspension block so much that it tweaked the chassis.

After that was figured out the overall tweak in the chassis was much better... Yet there was still a small amount left. I now loosened the servo mounts up and re tightened them down carefully. BINGO no more tweak.

I know this may seem kind of stupid of me to write this, but these are often very overlooked factors when maintaining your car. I try to tear my car down completely every month of racing. to check for bent bulkheads and whatnot.

-Korey
