    I'm gonna guess the two wheels were the front two? Wheelies are cool, but they will blow tires, and diffs.

    After your rebuild the diff, maybe add some heavy fluid - 300k or 500k. That will keep the diff action less, keeping it cooler, and send less power to the front wheels, helping them live a bit longer.

    I wish I had a Outcast to go with my Kraton... :) Thinking of converting my Typhon.

    I was going to suggest that, my center diff seems to like to leak, the screws keep coming loose, I think that's on my list of parts to get.
