.....we've gone through this before. Pucks have little to no effect on the way a car rotates. That's a personal perception but its untrue none the less.

At least you didn't say 12k posts, or I might be offended

Well, from my testing I disagree. 28 less grams over the rear axles does effect rear bite.

Rear bite? Are trying by trying to imply your talking about the way the car rolls forward?

I am referring to rear side bite. There is a little less forward bite also. But I have forward bite to spare. Also, it feels like there is more bone lockup with the stock outdrives, giving on power push. I picked up a set of MIP shiny pucks to try. I am curious to see how much of what I feel is bone bind and how much is just weight.

If you remove the weight difference between the stock outdrives and shafts and the pucks system, the car will certainly rotate differently. And also as wildcat has said, they don't bind as much under load, and offer a slight benefit to on-power steering.

How could it NOT. You're removing 28+/- grams (an once) directly from the rear of the car. As well as removing that same weight from the rotating mass that the motor has to turn.

The difference is there. Whether or not a person "feels" that difference or not is where opinions come in.

Guys that have issues with the stock slipper,

Are you using it as a traction aid or a transmission protector. If you use your finger to keep the rear wheels hooked up you don't ruin the pads. The stocker is great. New car owners, shouldn't be told that it needs to be upgraded.

I set my slipper for 1 to 2 inch lift with a 17.5. I dont need it to prevent wheel slip because we dint have wheel slip. But the jit slippet heats up and 5akes away power and does not main the 1 to 2 unch lift i want.

Moving past the slipper lets talk shocks.... Xrings I like much better than stock. Kashima shocks look really cool but no performance upgrade. I have used both gold and chrome v2 shafts, chrome are smoother.

A factory sponsored guy was the first one to warn me that the stock slipper is garbage. I don't need any other evidence for me to get something that works. If you can get the stocker to work, good for you! But delusionally expecting a new owner to believe it's just fine is a bit of a stretch. Wasn't this issue very well discussed about 600 pages ago?
