The trick is to use the Mugen Super Grease on the diff balls (as well as the Centax thrust bearings). I find other types of grease is not sticky enough and they fly out very quickly after a few rounds. Put some grease on a paper towel and smear it evenly together with the diff balls. I actually ran the same diff balls and plates for close to a year without any gritty feeling in the diffs. I've very seldom taken the rear ball diff out to service and clean it. Only went to ceramic balls diffs because I was itchy.
Instead of the Mugen Super Grease, will the Team Associated Stealth Diff Lube work? Have been using that for my other diffs with good results.

Is the Mugen Grease really that "Super"?

The stealth lube works but they don't last for long. After a few runs the diff will be dry and then if you're not careful, they turn gritty. While with the Mugen Super Grease, it sticks pretty well even after a few races. No need to dissassemble to clean and maintain.

Try putting a light coat of this grease on the polished side of the diff axle before putting on the diff collar. It makes the setting of the diff collar better and more predictable.

Well, that's the only thing that is "super" about the *spit* product.

Definately - Rene was kicking my arse for half an hour for not having one

Better would have been a spring to pull the brakes on, though - it must have broken towards the end of the straight, as I would have noticed otherwise that the steering wasnt't working anymore. So shutting down the throttle would only have lessened the severity, but perhaps a auto-brake would have saved it.

Don't understand why the fail-safe didn't cut in on the servo, though

I was too mean to pay the currently high price (in Europe) for the Spektrum, but now it may have cost more than what I'll save later.

He needs to work on his running a bit - with my driving style, I need a pit monkey who can sprint like a world class althelete

Strange... Are you sure the fail safe is set to on in the first place?

The fail safe would not have worked if there was no power from the receiver pack.

And it hit the only solid thing on the whole circuit - the rest of the circuit is surrounded by grass banking and catch netting Real murphy.....and why the fail safe didn't kick in - no idea!

Fail safe defintately works, it cut in last week when my receiver pack voltage went too low.
Rene thought the power lead had come out first of all, but when I got back to the pits, I found that my crystal was dead.

I've put him on a diet on training plan already, so he'll be fit for Sept, when I take part in the Snetterton round of the UK championship

Perhaps that crash was bad enough to damage your crystal. So it may have appeared that your crystal died before the crash...

Just test it out. While the Tx and Rx is switched on and connected to the servos, unplug the crystal... I'm pretty sure it'll go into fail safe mode.
