Time for me to rebuild the diffs, and I have a question. When I bought the car the diffs needed new balls and plates, so I put new parts in with lube and they were flawless. I think the plates just need to be sanded a touch and re-lubed. Is there a certain grit of sandpaper that works really well? Or with these do you just purchase new plates?
When the first rebuild time came, I just took the new plates I had put in and flipped them over, since the outdrives don't really wear out the plates as much as the diff balls. It seemed to work like new, but now THAT side is a bit more worn, and I really don't like the idea of dropping in a new rebuild kit every time they wear out. Tips or tricks anyone? Thanks a ton!
Upgraded earlier this year from TC4's in VTA and stock foam to 007's, I don't think I will own anything except XRAY from now on
After 1 race night I had the 007 turning faster laps than the FT TC4 that I had ran for about 5 months!
Lots of great information in this thread!
