Serpent USA. It's part #802600. I think they are closed for the holidays now but you might give them a call if you want it now.

Does new gear diff leaks like the old gear diff? Straight cut gears or bevel gears?

Leakage is virtually non existent. The new dff uses bevel gears.

The oil diff acs as a loose diff in slow corners and off throttle. But tightens in faster corners.
In short it feels like a tight diff in fast sweepers where you need the on throttle steering, and feels like a loose diff rolling through hairpins and powering out of them.

When I was testing different oils I found that when I went too heavy I'd notice it first in the high speed corners. The car would spin mid corner on throttle, it was still very drivable out of the tighter bends though.

With the ball diff often you'd wish for a tighter diff in fast corners, but you'd already have problems powering out of hairpins.

What kind of battery pack does the 710 take? I'm sure the answer lies somewhere on this thread, but it's about 1,000,000 pages.
