Its lower maintenance and easier to manage compared to the ball diff.

For low bite tracks, the common thing to do is to use a lighter oil in it.

I would recommend trying with Serpent 10,000 or 20,000 first.

The gear diff should be available via your hobby shop. Kyosho and other makes will not fit without significant modifications.

The gear diff is at the moment only available for the rear.

A lot of people use Serpent 30K oil in it (I have Xray 20K in it...that should be comparable to Serpent 30K)

Yes lots of people use 30k equiv but he said he's on a low traction track. Last weekend I was on a low traction track and I had two rear diffs, one with the Serpent 30k and the other with Kyosho 3k (about 10k Serpent I believe) which worked better. The 30k gave me way too much steering and very loose rear end.

Today i saw someone on the track with a front geardiff.
it's pretty easy to build. he grinded the teeth of the diffpulley.
Then he superglued the pulley of the normal balldiff on it. He also but some screws in it i believe. And to get it aligned correctly he used the spacers you can put in your uprights, between the bearings. Works really good he said, car looked really fast on the track.
