Default Ball diff

Hi guys,

I have a problem with my diff and wonder if anyone of you can shed some light.

I have a T1R for about a year now and the ball diff were great. I rebuilt them when needed. Recently, I was just tightening it a bit at the track since it was slipping a bit. Prior to the adjustment it was re-built and was very smooth. Then after adjustment (maybe 1/4 turn) everything went tight. And it was slipping way more then before adjustment. Diff action became very tight and I was no long able to rotate one wheel with one finger. To get it not to slip I have to tighten it ALOT...almost to the point of a solid rear axle.

Can anyone shed some light as to what need to be done? I'm using Team Associate's carbide balls. And I also rebuilt the thrust bearing too.
