Default Flux diff or gst diff?

I grenaded my first diff in my savage,

after about 11 gallons the rear pinion let go destroying the teeth on the ring gear,

so now id like to know which diffs are better cen gst or the flux bulletproof?

i can get cen diffs complete, for around the same price as i can get bulletproof gears for,

which hold up better and are the cen diffs hard to make fit?

FLux BULLETPROOF diffs are better. Becareful they have Flux HD diffs but they are SUPER WEAK! Make sure you get the bulletproof diffs. GST diffs are not very strong. Most GST owners upgrade to the Nemesis diffs.

I had gst diffs in my hellfire with modded os28s over a 3 year period and they hardly showed any wear.

hellfires arnt nearly as heavy as a savage.. so the diffs would not be under as much strain..

I had no idea that the cen gst diffs were weak,

never had any issues with the diffs on my gst, the internal diff gears look very stout compared to my savage diff internals,

The reason i ask about hpi bulletproof diffs is there seems to be quite a few posts cropping up recently about broken pinions and they have not been released that long,

where i have seen few posts over the years about broken pinions on the gst diffs,

if one type breaks about as often as the other, then the cen diffs may be my way to go,

as i can get replacement ring and pinion gears for around £5.00 each

any one else running cen diffs and had issues with them or have broken the flux diffs?
