WE JUST HAD A INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION IN LIMA PERU
WHERE SEVERAL RACERS FROM THE REGION ATENDED
AND FROM THE MTX5 KITS SOME WITH BRACE SOME WITHOUT
NONE STRIPPED GEARS
ON SOME THE STOCK REAR DIFF BROKE OUT, IT LASTED ABOUT A GALLON - SOME TWO GALLONS FUEL WITHOUT ANY MAINTENANCE, HIGH TRACTION AND JUST RUNNING
CLOCKWISE
IF PROPER CARE IS DONE, CHANGING THE OIL EVERY RACE, AND ROTATING THE GEARS
I BET THEYLL LAST 4 OR MORE

would anyone know if capricorn diffs are this finiky? sounds a little unneccessary to save 4 grams or so of rotating mass but be given an unpredictable diff.

From all these reports of broken diff gears it is becoming apparent that at least the larger crown gears are swapped over from the plastic type to the metal type. I have full plastic gears in my rear diffs but i am thinking of changing to steel large crown gears to avoid erratic and unpredictable wear. Hopefully my next race will be at the NSW state titles, so i don't want blown gears.

Default diff

we tried km aluminium ones same as plastic after saturday we broke a diff every heat standard ones lasted 6 laps now we find out diff plastic bits that out drives go in are way to tight and this is probably the cause of all our diff troubles i though they were tight to stop leaking borrowed one from bishop and with steel already installed and bailey got to run in final with no troubles diff is still real smooth but fuel line came off at start /to lose bloody coloured stuff thanks for lend off diff bishop fellow mugen driver

Is it so tight that stacking a few gaskets wouldn't fix the problem?

No, the outdrive shafts were tight in the diff half holes, one side in particular was very tight/stiff, which would have been what was causing the diff to keep failing.

When I build my own diffs I actually put a tiny bit of grease on the outdrive pins before I slide them into the case, but I don't think that is suggested in the Mugen build manual so I'm guessing most don't do it.

In Greg's case I'm not sure what happened, or what caused it, just it really stuffed up each rebuild he kept doing within the same diff cases.
