I got some of those too, fit was perfect... unlike the ones from HB which DON'T and require a bunch of file work.

I didn't have to do anything to put the HB carbon inserts in. They were turn key and required no bench work. Maybe i got a lucky batch..

Mine fit just fine as well. First I've read about anyone having a problem with the fit. The price from HB is a little silly but not the quality, from my experience.

I'm running 90 percent of the Tessmann carpet setup and thought it was pretty darn good Sunday on our carpet track. Two weeks ago I tried the setup with extra kickup rather than the 5 dot ackerman arms and too much camber along with thicker sway bars I made from Serpent parts. I was traction rolling with very little warning but the car was pretty good on the jumps.

I ordered and installed the 5 dot arms and set my kickup back to the 8 degrees from the Tessmann setup. The sudden traction rolls went away and I should have pushed the car harder through the turns than I actually did. The only difference between my setup and the Tessmann setup sheet is my 1.8mm Serpent sway bars and I have HB red springs on both ends.

I've been wondering if I should adjust my center diff oil weight. I'm running 60K right now but most high traction setups seem to be a little to a lot higher weight. What difference will the thicker oil in the center diff make? I have some knowledge of how to tune diff oils for outdoor medium grip conditions but really don't know much about indoor high grip.

Hey guys, I'm gonna pull the trigger on purchasing this bad machine here real soon so I've been reading through this thread before I ask many questions, I'm almost to page 200 and I see people talking about sanding and sealing the edges of the carbon fiber? I don't have much experience with cf so far and I know this car is like 80% so I'm looking for tips on taking care of it? Sorry if I just haven't come to that discussion yet or if it's covered in a specific thread, thanks for any info

From what I've been told sanding is optional, some people like to chamfer the edges to make it look trick, but you can just seal the edges and that would be more than fine.

basicly its locking the center. car will accelerate harder but will also have a drag brake type feel when u let off. if u feel the center diff fade and start to slip u defidently need to go up in weight. best thing to do is try it and see how u like it
