    So ever since i have had my truck i have fun the slipper clutch...Now i ordered the Center diff and i put it in tonight. Now I know the truck is somewhat loud with the slipper clutch in it but does now that i put that center diff in it tonight it is alot louder.....Is this normal?? I did change the diff fluid to 50k. It said in directions that stock fluid was 100k.

    I just took center diff all the way apart relubed it and put it back together installing a different spur gear on it and put it back and meshed it and its still pretty loud. Now i took my slipper apart installed the same tooth spur and put it back together and did the same mesh as the center diff and its so quiet.....thats why i did not know if the center diff was messed up considering i just got it brand new today.

    Still pretty loud....I read every freaking search under "center diff problems" for the slash 4x4....I even switched the motor mount bearing. I use the King headz motor mount. I know for a fact that the mesh is correct and for a fact that it is installed correct and put together correct. I am using the castle 3800kv and mmp. I just dont know what to do anymore......
