Because that would be 3mm not 1mm. To achieve 1mm or 0 or negative, you run it -2 and add washers as needed.

I had my gear diff installed and filled with 2K for the race Sunday. It felt good to me but I wasn't pushing hard enough to unload the inside wheel so I don't know if it would have started to diff out or not.

I only finished 3rd in the b main but that was mostly due to me being overly careful. The buggy was definitely capable of finishing higher than the position I drove it to.

Dumb question. ......I've always ran my diff with the screw head opposite side of the moter plate(like the manual says) now I was told that is wrong.So what side should it be on ???

What side should the screw head be on for the 3gear?

If the thrust bearing is working properly, it will make no difference.

so you are running a gear diff and slipper eliminator, and are getting a high pitched squeal from the rear of the car?

I would assume somewhere in the drive line a gear is toasted. Whether it's the gear diff, transmission or the spur gear, something is finished.

+1 Take apart your tranny and trouble shoot it. a high pitched squeal from a gear diff sounds very odd.
