I thought that was for so the wing holes don't crack actually.

The easiest thing you can do to solve it all is just cut those bumps off, drill and screw the wing down. You can either buy the Avid wing washers, I am sure J Concepts and everyone else has them too, or just use some washers that you have.

Kudos I'm planning on using the exotek mounts one day when the stock one with the decal on the sides wear out

I purchased a set of mounts from Shapeway that were lower than the stock. I had to trim the front of the wing so it cleared behind the shock tower. The lower front portion of the wing sits almost level with the dip in the shock tower. If I remember correctly the wing usually sits over the shock tower.

Hi

I've tried only two gear in my diff and everything works out nicely. But, I got a strange noise. Does it matter in which gear to remove in diff?
Does anybody have noise in diff when only try two gears?

How often do you guys need to rebuild your diffs?
Has there been issues with the diff?
The MIP looks like some parts I want to have on hand so I will order some up but am wondering how the stock holds up?

Fellow user Socket suggested that I try using a quality tungsten ball and caged ceramic thrust. I went ahead and built several diffs that way and I have one that's coming up on a year old. I actually changed the outdrives but didn't even flip the rings. Still butter smooth. X rings and a caged thrust are must haves.

I actually snapped the diff screw by tightening it down to hard .. i was a little surprised because I felt like it had a lot of play. I rebuilt it and broke it in a little bit .. ran a few batteries through it as well. It'll be my second time on the track with it this week, should I tighten it up a little more ? What happens if it's too tight?
