    Question Frustrating

    How in the world do you get diff lube to stay in the rear diff? Twice now this season I have taken the diff completely down, cleaned and sealed every joint with RTV, but it just comes out the front bearing anyhow and gets all over my slipper clutch which really sucks for racing..


    Whats the secret?!

    Diff lube is for inside the gear set (spider gears) that are inside the diff housing, the Pinion and crown gear that run open in the diff housing just get a small amount of grease.

    I suspect you are filling this with diff fluid??
