Default Who makes the better Gear Diff?

Wondering on anyone who has raced many of the chassis brands over the last few years.

Getting back in to R/C shortly and looking to buy latest chassis. I have a stable of Tamiya TRF415/416.

So looking at the TRF419 or Associated TC6.2. Who makes the better Gear Diff I wonder?

The AE gear-diff is low maintanance (doesn't leak), but is very inconsistent. It starts off very tight when new, and gets looser the more you run it. So its hard to be consistent with setups between diffs and over time.

In general the AE quality is pretty poor these days. If you like high-quality stuff, you'll be dissapointed with the 6.2.

The best gear diff I've seen/used is the Xray. Zero leakage and super-smooth, and stays like that forever. The rest of the car is also to this standard.
