Default diff leaking?

I was curious if I am the only one having a problem with the diff fluid seeping out where your diff cups go into the diff. I have replaced the seals on the cup and inside the diff but still it will seep out after sitting for a couple days. I run the rc8t and have been using the stock seals. are there any better seals that I could use or something I could try to resolve this problem. The diff cups are also new. Thanks

Are you greaseing the o-rings? If not rub them with AE 'Green Slime'

I do grease all my seal with associated green slime, and my diff screws are not stripped. If it was the screws being stripped then the fluid would be leaking from between the ring gear and not there the where the diff bearing are located.

Only fill your diff cups up till the oil just barely reaches the top of the spider gears. If you have any oil seep out from the screw holes or gasket when you cap the diff with the ring gear then you have filled it too much.
