I personally had never experienced this problem using the 4HU salisbury type , so when the new diffs being used did, I was unsure why. Even the one I got from Mike Mcluskey and assembled by Gear Pro (Alan Will) has never even dribbled after an outing on the track.
Thanks Morris for those great pics...
It's little tricks like this that make you be able to put a car on a track and have complete confidence in it's ability to perform.....then you can concentrate on driving.....or learning to drive...

By the way......I ran many laps around riverside in the 80's.....
