used one of my extra gears from the back diff on cc-01 axel to lock the front diff . all i did was placed the extra gear between 2 of the gears to lock it. takes alittle work to get them lined uped so plate sits flush on it but it works well and you can always remove it when ever you want

I am in the process of doing this and will let you know how it comes out.

Jugg, that is the easiest and simplest way yet i have heard to lock a diff. its so easy its almost retarded! but hey, i did it and see how it goes!

I have locked one diff with hot gleu in one of my CC01 truck. I did it with transparent hot gleu. But now i have a strange sound in my axel, i think it comes through the hot gleu! Meby it comes i did not enouf gleu in it when i mounted the 2 alu parts together and it looks like their is some air in it!

An other friend of me told me hey sad you have not the good gleu used, their are 2 tipes: the transparent type and the white type.
Hey sad to mey i must use the white type, that type is much better flowing in all and the litle holes of the diff!
Try to do it with the white type hot gleu, meby thats better and is that strange sound going away!! I hope so.

Default Engineered solution?

Does anyone have an engineered solution to this problem, eg a movable doohickey to lock a half-shaft to the diff casing (or something like that!)? I know lockable cross-axle diffs are available for the Big Rigs and the CC/XC (I think), so I know it can be done...I just don't know how!

The method I use,is drill through diff housing into spyder gear.Then thread spyder & drill hole in cover a little larger than bolt so it can move around in cover.


Put lock tight on screw & don't tighten bolt tight.Let sit 24hrs before useing.



Works perfect!

Thats a very cool idea... I prefer to fill the casing with blu-tac tho

I used to tell people the easiest way was to move one of the spider gears from its stock location, and position it between the other two.
It locks solid, is nice and quick to do as you build, and it is completely reversible.

But after fitting rc4wd outcropper tyres, and a brushless outrunner motor, I found that the diff was a bit loose.
Upon further inspection I found that the stress from the extra grip had caused the spider gears to walk a little and force the outer casing open, partially stripping the thread in the process.
I put it all back together, locktited the outer casing screws, and all was well.
6 months later, the diff partially started working accompanied nice crunchy sound.
I pulled it apart to find that the 'loose' gear (which should be neatly seated between the other 2) had walked itself up an over another gear, back into its original location, snapped a shaft off from the tri-thing in the middle, and forcing the outer case open in the process.

I have now replaced the spider gears and center-bit, and filled the casing with so much blu-tac it cant move.
Its a much better solution, and allows the gears to move a little if they wish.
LSD effect can be achieved by using varied amounts of blu-tac, but dont mix it with grease as it becomes sticky/tacky grease, and gets everywhere
