    Question LSD/Lock Diff/Posi for 58034-2?

    I've read several post and searched google but am still not sure what part to order to get a locked rear end.

    Can someone post part # or link me?

    Thanks

    you can use JB weld on the internal gears of the diff...

    Hot Racing also makes a drop in part for it HERE

    Unless you plan on doing nothing but donuts or playing in deep mud a spool (locked diff) is useless in a 2wd slash.
    That said you can JB weld it as Shawmg88 said.

    Yeah that's pretty much all we're doing with it. Just bashing around and disappointed that it doesn't donut very well. Or if it starts to flip, the wheel on the ground won't spin.

    Then you'll love it, going in a straight line will be nearly impossible.
    I've heard of fellas using jb weld without the hardener.
    This would stiffen it up a lot but still give you some turning ability, its also reversible.

    no matter what you use, you want to clean all of the grease out of the transmission and gears. I'd use modeling clay, you'll get a minimal amount of slip and it is reversible if you decide you don't like the diff locked.

    Or Silly Putty. Cheap and completely reversible for when you figure out having a locked diff isn't that great.

    you could also just buy a new diff so you dont need to open the old one and in case you dont like it or break it you have a spare

    I keep a total of three in my parts box. One thats been JB'd, One that has moderate diff grease, and one that is stock open. My slash sees many-a-surface. haha

    I cleaned out the stock diff, melted plastic to fill the diff completely and the outcome was amazing. Full posi! I've ran about 20 2s lipos and no problems. This is more of a budget trick. And because the gears are steel you can remove the melted plastic just by pulling it out. So it doesn't hurt anything and pretty much free!
