The Racer's Edge putty is very stiff at first, but loosens up as it gets used...in fact too loose for crawling. I ended up using Blu-Tac (Elmer's E1531 Poster Tack Reusable Adhesive) an so far I'm pretty happy with the results. The RE putty is very sticky and gooey when trying to remove it as well. Hope this helps.

Thank you, I never would have thought of using sticky tack, the stuff I used to get in trouble for stealing from the teachers in fourth grade, to stiffen up a Diff. does the sticky tack last longer than the putty? I think, for now, I'll stick to the diff fluid, but I may play with the sticky tack idea, or like substance in the future. Nice build the way, Your Hammers looks sweet on the rocks! Can't wait to dust mine off for some abuse!

So far yes, the tack is lasting longer. I've tried 1 million diff fluid and it was still too "slippy" for my liking!

Do you know about how much tack you put into the diff? Did you pack as much in their as possible, were you pretty sparing with it?

Thanks! I think I'll try that the next time I stop in at Walmart for groceries. What a neat idea!

I'm running Silly Putty in the front of my Clone Hammers. I don't have a ton of packs through it, but so far it's held firm and not slipped at all.

I'm very happy with how my truck crawls with the Silly Putty.

Mack's Pillow Soft Silicone Putty Earplugs are also good for packing the front diff. Available at any drugstore. I have been using it for several years now.

How do those stand up to abuse? Do they end up breaking down after a while?

I have had Mack's in mine for about 2-years now. No problems so far.
