Default TC4 Diff help

I've been driving a number of TC 4's for a while and notice that the diffs on them losen very quickly. I have two of the cars with the metal diff's but the weak link seems to be the plastic nut they use for tightening the ball diff. Now my question is, have the made any aftermarket diffs for the tc4 that does have that plastic piece or is there a steel nut out there for it? i would prefer gear diffs but i haven't seen any made, plus the diff case is way to small.

You should be able to find a nut that fits. Take one of the diffs apart and bring the threaded part with you to a hardware store. It'll take 20 minutes and $0.50

On a side note, have you been following the directions on how tight to make it? I follow the instructions to the T on my SC10, and it's been worry free for nearly a year.

I think I have followed their instructions but i do tend to over tighten.
