Diff outdrives getting chewed.

Postby dharvin » Sun Nov 04, 2012 3:19 am

Hey all
im having a problem with my DIB 2.0 cs spool. Its made of aluminium which is quite soft and the steel outdrives have eaten a fair way into it. And yes, i used the plastic clips, but they've been worn away. I was wondering if anyone else is facing the problem? And if so, how you went about correcting it. I dont really want to get another CS diff as they are quite expensive. Any ideas?

Everything has a service life. Looking at the wear marks on the teeth, it looks worn and tired. Your blades gave long time before it got to this point. If your blades broke, why dont you replace the blades before the outdrive starts to wear down? :( You could have replaced the blades for 5 bucks long time ago. Now you have to replace the whole diff. Whose fault is it? Not the diff. They're actually pretty robust, as far as aluminum goes. You own a DRB, but you can't afford a new diff? Maybe you should look into a tt01 or a r2 clone.

DIB* And not that i cant afford a new diff, Id rather look at cost effective measures available rather than blindly throwing $50 around when there could be a much simpler and cheaper fix.

Cost effective measure would be to replace the blades before the diff eats itself.

Yea, replacement blades are like $5? You even get a spare pair when you buy the FCD. A little black grease may help too.

regular check ups on the blades is necessary.
every run or two i check my blades, and once they crack i replace them.

im still not impressed by the regular maintenance thats required, so im looking into alternatives that put steel outdrives with aluminum centers. possibly might have some machined, if not using other diffs from different makes and modifying them.

I found that the one way outdrives which fit into the hole of the 2.0 spool. Just gotta trim the outdrives on the spool and find a way to secure the one way outdrives in. But for now, im running longer 45.5mm dogbones in the back so that they arent in the notch. And yes, running blades :P

yeah checking those things are kind of irritating. ive changed over back to the plastic spool and put aluminum cups over the outdrive. IMO the plastic one lasts a lot longer
