Orange locktite. Holds better than blue, but not quite as severe as red. I've been using it on problematic screws lately and it does seem to work better, while not requiring heat to remove. I only use it on 2mm or larger hex though. Would probably need heat if you used it on 1.5mm hex.

I'm quite sure i used blue loctite but it still came out. I'm not sure if the diff cup is of steel, it seems made of plastic. If it is, no way that the thread lock will work..

The cup is steel with a plastic retainer over it that I'm assuming is there to help hold the pin and keep it from backing out. Once you remove it a couple times, it doesn't do much and I usually get rid of it, then just use better locktite.

I've tried another way, because i have no heatshrink of that size. I used a cable tie around the screw, then some attack around the cable tie, to prevent it from moving should work fine. Now i have to order a differential pinion, because the front one has all teeth deformed. Very bad quality. I have another RC, thunder tiger mt4 g3, with at least 120 discharge on it, and the differential gears are the original ones. I had only to put some shims on the internal gears and nothing more. I'm surprised anyway to see that the rear diff is still good.

Hi, i resolved with the CVD driveshafts. They work fine, i installed them only on the front wheels, on the rear there is no need.
