I'd also suggest packing the diff out with some thicker grease. If you build it as per the instructions it's pretty loose and doesn't offer a lot of traction, especially with brushless. Something a bit thicker in it would help in my experience.

What grease do you use Dave.
I've only ever found too much of anything just makes it's way out of the diff leaving a large mess.

I confess I've actually replaced it with an oil filled diff. I originally built the kit one with the kit grease and it was far too loose so I was going to find something a bit thicker to use but then found out about the oil filled one which seemed a better idea.

Hi Dave,
