Default Rear Diff

If you have the rear diff to tight using the screws what will be the symptoms. I adjusted my rear diff since the car was pulling to the right when i went on throttle and I tightened it until i couldnt turn the pulley. But when i run it i want to know if i can tell if its too tight or too loose.

you want the diff too be tight as possible without the back end giving out. so it depends on the track. if the track has a lot of traction, you can have the diff tighter. so basically, it is trial and error. set it up pretty tight, drive the track. if the back end comes out when you give it power, the diff is too tight and loosen it some. then try again. at track with no traction, you have to run the diff loose. i hope this helps and makes sense at the same time!!!

If you tighten the screws to tightly, it would be the same as having the diff collar set tightly too. Which means like what joemugen mentioned, your rear end may be loose on tracks with less traction.

When you tighten the internal screws of the rear diff, make sure it's just sufficiently tight so that the diff pulley does not slip when you try to turn it hard. Not more than that. Make sure you "lock" the setting by tightening the grub screw on the other end which should hold the setting and prevent the main screw from loosening out.

Anyway, the rear diff may appear "tight" after tightening the screws. But give the car a few runs to make the rear diff settle in. It will be good after that.

The setting on the diff collar may be tight when cold but after a few laps on the track, the diff collar will loosen up. So be careful when setting the rear diff.

A tip would be to put a thin layer of Mugen Super Grease on the shiny diff axle surface where the diff collar clamps.

Just a thought.

Cheers, Mark.
I have on occasion had an engine I (nor anyone else who tried) could tune. I have used PERMATEX sensor safe HIGH TEMP RTV SILICON GASKET MAKER (ORANGE). Clean all mating surfaces with alcohol and acetone and seal the base of the carb, both ends of the carb clamp HSN (both surfaces of the fuel nipple ) and the back plate. I apply it with a toothpick. This, in most cases, has solved the problem, and the seal lasts until the next engine dismantlement. It is not easy to remove.

Not the Assos diff grease - it is much too light.

It'd be best to wait for your mugen grease, otherwise the effect may be quite the opposite of what you want.

Cheers, Mark.
