Yes, the Tamiya stuff is mild and that's the main reason I like it. It's much kinder to the alloy threads your assembling/disassembling all the time.
. . . like when you keep having to move the engine 'cos the 0.8M pinions wear too fast.

It's also OK to use on the plastics for that odd pesky screw that keeps coming loose.

I have a question that anybody familiar with a active diff can answer. A friend gave me an active diff that he cannot use cuz according to him it did not show any difference with the performance of his V1RR. Does anybody know how to use it? where it is better placed in front or rear? any tips on the installation? Any help will be highly appreciated.

Thumbs up Active diff

I have a diff installed in the rear and the more I run, the more use I see out of it.

You can customize it according to the tracks layout to benefit your particular drving style. You can completely lock it up if that's what you want of have it as lose as a goose.

Only track time will tell you whether to tighten or loosen it. I run mine pretty tight ot rather locked up.

I have one in the front end of the same car, more for bling than practicality, since I have it locked up tight [used the one way on my current racer, since I retired the car with the active diffs and only run it fro demos and fun].

I wish I could explain it to make sense but go to the experienced guys at the track and they should give a good start point. And as Darryl Waltrip says "sperience will teach you". If you want to start in the middle you can feel/see it for yourself. Remember, puting the power onto the track is your goal in cornering.

Good luck!

Thumbs up Shimmy the front!

Haven't thought about it till now but I guess it'll work.

I'd make sure the lock out bearings don't miss too much of that shaft or I would imagine they would fail from the play.

Ok I can't see how this active diff works other than it being a limited slip diff. If you tighten the 2 screws down it's the same as having heavy oil in the diff. I thought it supposed to be free at low revs and tighten up under power? It certainly doesnt do that

Cheers

Sounds like the active diff is kinda like a ball diff that is externally adjustable to simulate different wt oils. What you are looking for is the negative diff which acts like a regular diff at low speeds but turns into a solid at high speeds.
