I've ran .2 c-hubs and it was pretty good but not much stearing. took a huge step and put some .6 alloys i had laying around and it was much better stearing but at the end of the day i paid with killed tires. i guess depends on grip

Just picked up a front one way. Where do the two rubber o-rings go? I am guessing that they go in the outdrive where the dogbone goes, correct?
Thanks.

What i found when i installed my one way is that depending on how wide you're running the car you may not need them. It is a very tight fit with them in there on a narrow car.

I think TOP made some but they didn't last very long. They were aluminum and the steel pin would eat through them pretty fast.

I usually add a few drops of ca glue to the slots where the pin rides in the pullies as I assemble the layshaft.

Ti racing had some that they sold and I got one, it is not much better than the stock one other than being titanium. I do not even use it, the drive train feels freer with the stock one anyway!! I think the slop cmoes from the molds at the factory because I have tried replacing them myself a few times for wear and they do not improve at all. The only way I think you could improve it is too super glue it together or something.
