Hey Tim, the guy to contact is Nick Priest. He'll put you in contact with a guy named Greig in England. I'll look and see if I still have the e-mail addy.

ok guys i have a problem. im building my new TC5F im working on the diff's and this is where my problem is. my kit has the aluminum out drives. i assemble the diff and when i go to tighten up the diff bolt i can't. i have to press reall hard on the t nut to even get it by the threads of the diff bolt. and when i do finally get it to start. ill get the bolt to the nylon part of the lock nut in the t nut and every time it rips the threads right out of the nut. ive now gone through 12 nuts and 7 bolts. its getting a little old. does anyone have any ideas? and yes i did compress the spring first

I made this tool for my diff. to make it easier to assemble. I made it fron scrap aluminum sheet 3"X3". Since I start using this tool, it made my diff build a lot easier. The Y side is to check how tight is my diff instead of using allen drivers and the 3 other side is where the split on the outdrive goes in to keep the pressure on the T-nut. Make sure the T-nut is not backwards as well.

Nice!

the diffs are not easy to build. almost ridiculous...why can't they make a touch longer bolt? I know they are using existing bolts but I'd pay for a new, longer one just to avoid the hassle & stripping the mini 240 nuts.

the t nut is in there right. my thing is with that in there the threads of the bolt arnt even to the nut. i have to press hard on the nut to get the 2 parts to touch.

does anyone sell a tool like this? with this tool is there room to get the allen driver in there to tighten the bolt?
