people drive different. And itís been known that this happens in the center diff, watch the in touch series and Kevin Gahan talks about it. I am very hard on the throttle and I run for long periods of time, very very rare if I go less then 45 minutes a run and pretty normal for me to run 2 runs each day that are an hour or hour and a half each run. Iím very hard on stuff. Thatís why I have to completely tear down and rebuild my cars after each day of running. Also thatís why I run at the test track every week! I work stuff hard. I may not be top speed but Iíve won nationals like silver state in open class.

anyways, I just wanna try this part because it holds more oil in that diff case and has aluminum pins that hold the cross pins where the small gears go on and I can see a huge overall benefit to running it in the center. Any chance you have one I could buy off u or know someone that may have gotten one over the years when they produced them?? Iíll pay $40 for one. I donít need it in the front or rear. Just center so my cars a bit more solid and I know that case works with the 8x so when I get it I can use it there too. I canít see it atleast being as good as stock so I think itís worth a shot. It forsure wonít fail faster then the plastic case and I plan on loctiting everything so it stays together.

Again - been running it in trucks since it came out and NEVER had an issue.
