For the CVD’s lol 😆 I use the same on diff gears.
Was breaking a set of stock per battery pack to the point that it wouldn’t allow me to use 100% setting. Turning was an issue too so I went to 30k in rear and tested. I like it won’t wheelie right off the line. I not a big jumper but I do play hard

Hmmm I have a tray of broken ring and pinion gears @ drive shafts 🤣 guess it's time to upgrade , it's just freaking expensive compared to buying another set of take off new parts at Jenny's RC

Guys dry graphite or nothing at all on the open splined shafts of the GPM’s or be prepared to disassemble and thoroughly clean every single time you run in the dirt or sand. Any oil lube or grease is going to collect every piece of passing dirt and seize them up.

No boot no grease lol, just priced it out it's almost $250 maybe a little bit more to completely upgrade the drive shafts and the differentials to aluminum but that's with hot racing stuff maybe I'll go GPM and save some money

I use the red and tacky for everything or i soak bearings in wd40 for a couple hours & the yoke makes a big difference IMO more sturdy back end i only have it on the rear and it helps with like the sway when giving a full rip & stock differential it comes with metal planet gears inside the diff but the outside gear where the yoke is is plastic ive never opened my diff bieleve it or not and ive had my senton for like maybe 6 months i have insurance on my rc so when the diff goes i send it off to get replaced with a new one i got maybe a 2 month old rear diff in my senton

How are yours running? I found mine somewhat off-balance and turned my rear end into a vibrater. Which is why I just choked on my beer laughing at the lube question. I don't think it's needed and the only way it can hurt is but keeping dirt inside. Not that it won't get there anyways so it's a moot point.

Been using this Hob e lube or equal for years. This one is a little harder to use as its just the dry graphite. The really neat stuff is the bottle with the needle and alcohol in the solution. Locksmiths carry it. The liquid carries the graphite into small crevices and then evaporates and leaves just the graphite lube. Used that as a kid with HO trains and AFX slot cars.
