Congrats on the car. The build is very straight-forward, just take your time.

A couple tips I've picked up from the local TOP team like LarryF, use button heads to mount the ballstuds on the bellcrank, I also used a longer screw on the adjustment screw. Ream the holes of the spur before putting it on the adapter. Prethread the sway bar ballcups (the hollow alum part) some have broken it trying to use it to thread the cup.

Use LarryFs setup from the jackson charity race, its good.

Tried out the gear diff today. Initially put the diff in the rear and ran some laps. Car had more entry steering and was loose on power. I think some of that will go away when the diff wears in. Went up to 50K weight oil and put it in the front of the car. The car had better low speed steering and still pulled hard, but not as well as the spool. I picked up some heavier fluid and I'll give it another go tomorrow. I'm really looking forward to picking up another one and running them front and rear. With the spool up front and gear diff in the rear, the car launched very well. The gears were "notchy" when you spin the diff, but once again, I think that will go away as it wears in. It was not as noticable with the heavier oil. Good luck to anyone else running the diff and hope to hear some results from others.

The gear diff is now a must have... Not diff slipping, power to the rear when you pull the trigger.. It gives you more steering and rip out of the corners.. Nice and smooth.... The test pilot ran a spool in front and on ultra smooth asphalt... picked up .4 -.5 per lap.....

Oil is oil. cSt and SAE are different standards in measuring the "thickness" of the oil. The cSt numbering system is linear and the SAE standard is, well, not linear. At least, that is how it was explained to me.

Gear diff so far is very good! Power out of the corner is great. Using 10,000 diff fluid is working very well.

Ran 80k weight in the front today with much better results. Gonna try 100k next time out. I agree that 10k is probably pretty good for the rear. 20k felt too much.
