Use the Tamiya AW black grease in place of diff lube and tighten the diff as much as possible.

Build per the instructions. Cinch the diff screw down till it bottoms out and be sure to use loctite. You can use either the diff lube or the anti wear grease that came in your kit. The important thing is to use very little of either or you'll have a mess. Pay attention to how the cone or Belleville washers are oriented.

Orient the diff so that the outdrive with the shaft is on the right side of the car. It just makes it easier during maintenance.

There are a number of building "tricks" to tighten the diff action, but you'll find those in the Tamiya Mini thread.
