Hi guys, I want to take this TT-01 to the next level by locking the rear differential. What is the best way to do this without breaking it. Some say Blue-Tac, some say 300wt fluid, Help please. Also, in the front, people say add a one-way. Please explain it.

TT01 diff does not have fluid seals, you cannot use silicone fluid.

BluTac gets loose & needs redoing regularly.
Some ppl stuff it with rags or little rubberbands but that's no different either.


I like to use ShoeGoo. It doesn't need redoing but can be undone
when you need to by washing in solvent thinners.

Pull the diff apart & degrease thoroughly if its a used unit. No need if its brandnew.
Just glue the spidergears to the side bevels... don't let ShoeGoo touch sides of
casing or outdrive shafts & you can remove the glued unit easily.
just take out one of the 3 small gears and shove it in between the other two gears. itll lock it and is easily reversible.
i always locked the rear diff of the tt01 with hot glue.. hot glue when is cold is easy to get out so is reversible too..

I concur!! Use shoo goo!
or you could just get a locking block...
In my TT02D i just pack my rear diff with thick grease and run a one way up front. I like the way it feels with a diff in.
