That depends on how tight your diff is now. If a diff is very tight, it will make it harder for the inner and outer wheels to spin at a different speed, which is what happens when your car makes a turn.
As a result, there will be some 'fighting' between the wheels. When driving the car at normal speeds, this effect is only noticable in the car's handling when coming out of a corner on throttle, but you won't notice it as 'binding'. If you roll the car manually on the floor you can see this effect happen, and may feel the car resisting the movement a bit.
My experience with diff oil is that it softens over time, so I'm guessing your diff should be rather loose...

Are the wheels hitting anything? Linkage, lower arms, camber links, check that the plastic on the inside of wheels do not touch anything!

ok i give up. spent an entire day trying to find my problem, and it just got worse.

i took out my dogbones as adviced, and still the problem persisted. so, i took out both my diffs and gave my bearings a good blast and a good lube after that.

assembled my entire car getting ready for practice tomorrow, and the binding became worse. even moving straight now, i get a little. when i turn, much worse it`s like braking harder than before

all linkages arn`t touching anything. chassis plate isn`t bent. bearings are all good. centre shaft isn`t binding. it`s definitely the front part cause, when i disassembled both diffs, back spins normally, but only the front binds.

is there a possibillity i tightened my front diff too much? cause i tightened my screws. not crazily tight, but , tight.

what could be the problem?

Well, at least you know it's in the front half of your car. From your description this time, I suspect something is out of alignment and that causes a bearing to bind slightly. Try to loosen all screws in the front part of your car by one single turn and see if things are improving. If things improve, check all the plastic parts for damage.

Sometimes, just changing the order in which you assemble parts can make things much smoother. When I first built my serpent impulse, I had a hard time fitting the radio plate on. It just seemed to be too large and wouldn't fit. A quick search on the net gave me the tip to loosen all screws in the front section and try again. It worked.
