I use LOSI gaskets, apply a bit of oil on them when assembling, and tighten opposing screws when tightening and haven't had a problem since.

First time round I lost lots of oil...

Make sure when you build the shafts and CVD's that they are bind free.

My diffs do not leak, make sure you DO NOT over fill!!

Mine use to leak but not any more. I think the orings swelled up a little and sealed. Give them some time.

Only my center diff leaked a little. I pulled it apart and reseated the housing to the spur then retightened the screws in the standard cross-pattern. No more leaking. I think I didn't get it quite seated right the first time.

Now none of my diffs leak. No sanding, no green slime, no Losi o-rings.

IDK I have seen it listed but It must be designed to keep the pipe off of the battery box. I guess. IDK
