It’s been fun, but last week it started not moving well. It was clear that a diff had blown. Tonight I finally found the problem.

This is an upgraded MIP differential. Nobody makes anything for these anymore. It is 15 years old after all. I’m tempted to just fill the center section with CY. Kind of an RC Lincoln-locker.

Otherwise my choices are strip it and sell the parts to some other fool who wants to get one of these going (if there are any). Or I can put it back together and put it back on the shelf to rot.
