Default Tamiya gear diff or Spec R for 416/417

I am interested to buy a gear diff for the 416, but it seems i have the choice of buying Spec R or Tamiya Brand. i seem to notice that the tamiya brand is a little cheaper. What i want to know is , are both brands 37T or 38T in pulley size. also which one is more leak free and durable?
Your input and experience is very much appreciated.

Tamiya gear diff is better than Spec R . If you buy a spec r you have to change the rear shaft .

Other being white in color, that is all I also see being different. There is a upgrade coming around for replacement metal gears soon~!

Where did my pictures go? I'll have to check the link.

Thanks JoeyE. Does anyone know what weight of oil does tamiya include on the 9cc bottle given with the gear diff? There are no viscosity markings on the bottle at all !

it is a 1.5mm bit, i had issues at first to find a driver and used imperial drivers, but i think they are poor quality heads on the screws that make a 1.5mm difficult to fit in sometimes with new screws.
