Hey guys, Looking for help, Upon hard acceleration, my car wants to turn left. At first I thought it was due to one new tire on the left front, but I also put the other new one on the right front, and it was the same. I literally have to turn right a bit to accelerate hard down the straight. I'm leaning towards rebuilding the front diff, and cleaning/lubing the bearings.

Does this sound like a good direction? Anyone have anything else I should be looking at?

It's probably due to the rear suspension block machined incorrectly causing incorrect rear toe on each wheel. You can offset the block to get even toe. I would start there first.

anyone notice the loud gear noise from the aluminum ring gears?

My steel ring gears didn't give off much noise....the aluminum ones do.

Also open your diff cases up n lube the gears often . Even if your not changing fluids.
Thats the best i can think of to tell yea. I got two race days and a half a practice day out of my gears so far in my 13/14 model
Hope this helps yea

Still waiting to hear if this will be the hot set up for clay this summer....I have a chassis and front brace in my cart ready to ship once I know what I'm running.

With exotech rear hubs or the aftermarket billet xray hubs with the ball holes on top,what hole are most using? how high can you mount the balls using the outside holes and not effect roll center so the plastic ball links dont touch the tops of hubs and bind suspension on the down travel?

I am not happy to order in xray-shop @ austria. I order last feb. 14. and after a week never got tracking # so i e-mailed them and they just found out the parcel outside the EU WTF. If i did not e-mailed them maybe still inside the warehouse. Never ever buy anymore this store.

Running the Exoteks and I've kept mine in the middle hole. Seems to work well for me there.

I ran the exotek hubs middle hole with 1mm spacer and plenty of clearance.

I have had great results with XRAY-shop Austria. They state on their site it can take up to 5 business days to prepare an order to ship. Thus one does not recieve tracking info until one's order is filled/packed and labeled.
Their shipping rates are reasonably inexpensive. Not to mention their great inventory and the ability to replenish out of stock items within a week.
