Filled my center diff with 100k and 2 runs later the case melted allowing the spider gears to move out any idea why this would happen.
The good news is it looks like the case is the only thing broken.

I know several people who run 100k oil in their center diffs without any issues. Got any pictures?

Sounds like you could have had a bearing failure. Or the diff may have been improperly shimmed. Either of which can cause extreme heat. Were you running 6s?

I didn't get any pictures and had to cut the case apart to get the spiders out.
There was no bearing problems I just put in new ones when I put the diff in. And all the shims we're in were they belonged. I did one run on 4s and then it did go out on 6s.
By the way I have a MMX and 2200kv in it.
