This diff gear feels really gritty, like the grease that would've been in there is long gone.

I found the diff lube from my GT kit, but it's nearly empty.

What's everyone using these days to lube the diff?

Thanks!

You can still buy the Stealth diff lube but any ball diff lube works. Most of mine use the inexpensive Arrowmax grease, which seems fine.

Many times the crunchiness is from the 6 little ball bearings in the side of the outdrive.

They do still sell it, that's incredible! Thanks @juicedcoupe

That's exactly what it feels like, crunchy, I was wondering if maybe I'd put flat spots on those diff balls, the way it feels. It was run on road for most of its life, wasn't sure if that might have done it.

I noticed now that Associated makes the Stealth lube, and the black grease, just bought both.
Glad to hear the crunchiness doesn't necessarily mean I burned it up. Thanks for the reply @Frankentruck

Is there a good Team Associated tool set out there? Specifically that has the hex heads?

Found an original tool kit on eBay.

I seem to be missing my plastic parts container filled with AE hardware, from the RC and GT kits.

Still haven't found my container with the original AE hardware and hex wrenches, but I did find this.

With a few other things.

Feels like there is still oil in these.

Went through the kit and separated the Kyosho from the AE.
Image

Found a lot of new AE hardware, but not my AE container. Was still stoked to find new E-clips, nyloc nuts, regular nuts, and fresh washers.
Image

Waiting on parts, so bagged everything to get started on the GT kit.

Is there a trick to removing and installing these roll pins, without marring the shaft, or pin?

The Avid bearing kit arrived today.
Image

These don't look like any of the bushing that came out of there. I'm guessing the two odd looking bearings go in the Stealth. Couldn't find any diagram at Avid of what this kit covers.

Did I get the wrong kit? Was I supposed to have got just the Championship Edition instead?

The bearings are fine. I'm gonna assume you got the Worlds re-release kit, so you should probably ended up with 4 extra 3/16x3/8 bearings.

I bought the kit recommended by @jcwrks, this one
https://www.avidrc.com/flexkit/?kit=849&kitname=RC10+Worlds+Car

These two bearings are not like anything else on the car I see, and they could only fit on bottom of the Stealth:
Image

Do these fit together, and are they directional? Surprised Avid doesn't mention this anywhere.

I am trying to decide if you are pranking us or not. Something tells me you are serious though. :lol:

In the shipping process, those smaller bearings became perfectly seated in the larger bearings. Really gave the impression as a complete assembly. Finally figured it out :lol: .

Thanks again!
