Have you got the belt tensioners in the right way. If you've got the diff positioned low the diff gear will probably be tight against the chassis. I also remember somebody else mentioning that the gear diff can also rub against the rear shock tower. I hope this helps.

It is 1.5mm but the hex is very shallow so it doesn't feel like it's taken hold very well.

I run my diff in a DB-01 which is a fair bit heavier than a 501/511.

I've been using 7k CST oil in the front and 3k CST oil in the rear and this suits my driving style.

Anyone else have gear diff feedback for a 511?

After much hesitation, I will purchase and build one soon.

I say one, so is anyone running a gear diff in the rear only (with ball diff up front)?

I am running a gear diff in the rear and a ball diff in the front of my 511. It seems to be the perfect combo for me because I like to run my rear diff loose and my front diff tight. Having a gear diff in the back means I only have to rebuild one diff instead of two, and I can adjust my front diff as tight as I want to by using a ball diff. I get to have my cake and eat it too. Its a stellar setup and I highly reccomend it.

Are DB01 and TA06 gear diffs using the exact same size bevel gears?

Hrm, so just the opposite of what I was thinking! Thanks for the link Top.

Front ball diffs last so long though!

Actually, you're right, ball diffs do last longer in the front.

Lee would run the gear diff in the back and the ball in the front as I do, except the plastic bevel gears are getting chewed up in the rear with the hot motor he's running. He also has to put a ridiculously heavy oil in the front diff to keep it running "tight."

Once the steel bevel gears come out, watch him switch his front and rear diffs.

Is there a tighter O-ring (Kyosho?) available to prevent leaking?
