You have probably overvilled it... the silicon oil does expand when getting warm.. so don't put it full... most ppl just fill it just above the axils... also, put a thick grease on the small ruber ring and make sure it's fitted right (can be a bitch...)

What will be the advangtages over the one-way or locked one way? And what would be the recommended oil weight for treated track with med-high traction?

Which left hand side, lookinf from the back or the front?
My diff leaked from the left hand side looking from the back.
I didn't overfilled it, but there was a small amount of play on the outdrives, i put some shims in front of the little bearing which is in the diffs.
Never had a problem since.

Can you ajust the rear gear diff. ? I'm having problem setting the 710 at my local track. I've tried different tyre compound but the rear still spins out at corner.

try locking your front one way, it will be easier to drive specially if the track is loose, come on you have the ultimate optioned 710 that money can't buy

Just cause they are advertising it doesnt mean they actually have them yet. The guy we're buying them from (Winners Circle) is very reliable and is a serpent distributer and he is still waiting for them from serpent. If he actually has them thats great tho.
