Did you get the AE or MIP topshaft?

I finally got some grub screws. Ordered some .125"x.0001" spacers as well to remove slop I was having.

Holy crap did the grub screws tighten things up. There's no movement in the hubs anymore. I've got some play at the chassis hinge pins but that's it. Not even thrown spacers in yet.

I have both. I like the MIP better. It is a little lighter.

you really cant go wrong with MIP products. They have been putting out top notch stuff for years. And they pucks they came up with are everywhere. Might be the best selling item they ever came up with. The only think I dislike is their "super diff" with regular steel balls. not carbide

They all look so similar. I opted for the Exotek myself.

The MIP Bi-metal pucks are probably gonna be my next purchase. 40% lighter than stock setup.

I also changed out the shocks bushings to the aluminum ones. Then I replaced the steel flange nuts on the shocks and the wheels with lighter weight aluminum ones.

yeah, I have the alum nuts to hold the shocks on. I have not had one fall off yet, but they definitely dont have the bite of the steel nuts.

Default stock diff build

Assembing first car in 25 years. Top shaft bearing in case, opposite of sprur gear,does bearing bottom out in case half? The case half has a ridge in it. If it did seat all the way to the bottom how would you get it out? Can't post pic, not enough posts. The first idler is riding on the bearing.

It does bottom in the case, a pain to get out. bearings fit inside the idler gear.
