Default B44 diff and slipper help very needed.

I have a B44 and am kinda having troubles on how to tune the ball diff's and slipper. I haven't really replaced anything in the diff's, but re-oiled the bearings
and checked the diff rings. The rings are getting "rings/grooves" on them from the ball's in the diff. I'm sure I have to get new everything but I don't
want to mess up the new diff's by crushing everything, and slipper pad's/spring. I really have no clue on how to make them perfect, or how to tune them.

What kind of ball's are you happy with that last a long time and don't flat spot? and what kind of diff rings should I get??

I have a Mamba Max 1cell ESC (with BEC) 4600kv castle motor, powered by 5700 lightmax 2cells, and HS-5645MG Hitec. <-- If that helps

Thanks for any help or tips

Diff rings and less often diff balls are just a regular maintenance item - get used to replacing them and in very few cases is there anything better than the OEM parts and Associated cars are not one of those cases. You can generally, depending how your diff has been set/used, get 3-4 sets of rings though one before the carbide balls will need to be replaced themselves.

I've seen that thread, and It's amazing and full of grate tips but, it's made for a B4 (2wd) not a 4wd.

thanks for the help though

Sorry, not quite sure what you're wanting to know then. The fundamentals of building a ball diff don't change because a car is 4wd.

I watched all of his videos and he said that 4wd buggy's are much different with there diff's. I just want to know what kind of diff ball's and rings I need to get. If stock one's are the best or if there's some other kind.

There are no aftermarket rings worth buying and if you want better balls, Kyosho now makes some tungsten ones in AE-compatible sizes that will be slightly better but they're over $30 a diff. Ceramic balls crack and go flat as quickly as the stock ones.
