Default Kyosho diff clay

Gday everyone just wondering anyone got any feedback on the Kyosho Diff Clay.
Cant find to much info on it but do you pack it solid in the diff or do you just put varying amounts in to get the desired amount of lock I suppose.

thanks ashley, i wonder if it does work good or if its snake oil potion I am trying to get some give it a go anyway, might be pleasantly surprised. I seen some talk about it but no real feedback on it though. My silicon oil seems to leak to easy imo, I am to lazy to keep checking diffs after every meet. Blew another front locked diff friday night so trying to find something better.

I use serpent cleaning gum in the front diff of my RRR, it gives a really stiff diff. I heard about the Serpent team drivers using this trick in the old 705 some years ago. The Kyosho diff clay sounds like a similar solution.

Steve, I wonder if the mugen steel solid diff thing (the same as the kyosho plastic one you keep stripping) would fit in the kyosho diff housing?

Yokomo makes a hard grease that doesn't weep out like the oils. They still list them on there US web site. We used to use this stuff back in the day when the TC diffs wern't sealed.

You are being quite humorous today slow. You must be in a good mood about something.

thanks ashley , though it doesnt look like it will work ..plus mate its a mugen part i cant put a mugen part in my kyosho that would be like having sex with a playboy playmate and using a condom..you just wouldnt do it would you . I think I found out why it was stripping the block though. I am a dickhead have you pulled one of those front diffs apart on the 05t. Well I realised it was stripping the right side all the time and noticed the washer/shim under the pin was concaved and started to wear out diff cover plate. You know there is an oring under the shim that seals the outdrive..well for some reason I have left this oring out, and there is no support there for the shim so with all the forces of my excellent kickarse driving skills created to much freeplay and so the pin was not engaging all the way in the block making it strip it....I will double check the diff I have in there now before next meeting and then see how it goes.
Hopefully see you at brendale friday week. You going to be ready with yoru MTX4.

I was thinking super crunchy might be not a bad option when gears get worn a little.
