Rebuilt the entire transmission today and diff. Swapped out the top shaft. Everything is wayyyyyy smoother, I love the feel of it. Rebuilding the diff seemed to have helped a ton too. The guy at my local shop set it was set ok, but I had my doubts and after following the guide at the top and getting it honed in you can feel such a difference. Also did the countersunk washer / screw for the wing mount - looks way better. I was barely able to get the pins in to mount my new wing beforehand.

Finally turning out some consistent laps at my track, feels great, getting a consistent line and hitting the jumps consistently. Im loving every minute of this, can't wait until their racing season starts.

Rebuilding diffs or fresh diffs make a huge difference in how the car reacts and drives. crunchy diffs are bad....

so, I went to my RM car for 17.5. But i decided to not retire the mm car and ran it in the same 13.5 ss class I ran my RM in yesterday. The MM car was soooo much better with more power. The car alive and just was a pleasure to drive. In the last qual was screwing around and over driving the car to see how much I could get out of it. Ended up with my fastest laps of the weekend in any class. IMO 1620 grams in 17.5 is complete crap.

I used a dab. because of the crush tube, you can get it tight.

I'm almost finished building my kit, but it only came with one CVA axle. The bag labeled HH included one CVA axle, and what looks like a diff output shaft for a gear diff. Bummed

Got a question folks the Alloy Exotek wing mount, anyone know what angle it might be for the wing? I know the stock one comes with option of 3 settings 0-3-6 grades of angle using that little angle plate, but since the the alloy one aren't ment for that
maybe the downforce do not have that much effect and they skipped it? and perhaps left it at 3?

i took a couple months off from tuning anything but am throwing a fresh mm kit together. What was the final word on stopping the front wheel bearings from getting wasted. Was the kits crush tube too small or big or something, I simply forget. Sorry for the redundant question if the answer is posted previously here.

I think AE made a running change on crush tube width so all is good now. I also think the front axle and hex AE upgrade is a must to do away with stock screw holding axle on.

the bearings on mind bind with the 2/4 spindles but are free with the 3mm. They might need a little sanding to take the pressure off the bearings.
