well after countless packs through my Slash (at least 30), i think its time im going to tear it down and do a cleaning. Since im going to have it torn down, i am thinkin of fixing the open diff..... the one wheel drive thing is getting hard to deal with (mainly under hard braking).
Anyways, i wanted to know what kind of grease people are using in their Differentials? I dont want it to be locked, i would like it to be a moderate limited slip. So please tell me what you have done... what kind of grease you have used, etc... and the results. THANKS!

Silicone dielectric grease (aka: :"tune-up grease") works really well.
It's temperature-stable, pretty thick and relatively cheap. Since the diff isn't sealed, you need something that won't thin out and run out of the diff easily.

Only ran a few packs since the install and I think it definitely makes a big difference when coming out of a corner, no one wheel action. I do think you have to controll your throttle more because if you go wot on exiting a turn I find it spins out. But overall still much better acceleration upon exits even with a more controlled throttle.
Has it leaked out of the diff at all? If not, I want it!Originally Posted by MrBadExample
Ya can't polish fertilizer...
I ran mine like 3 batts through it and i ripped the trans apart and nothing at all was leaking out of the diff.Originally Posted by rag6
