To lower the diff, just rotate the bearing cam so that the mark is at the top.
To raise the diff, rotate so mark is at the bottom.

When I ran 17.5 NR at norcal, I ran the standard ball diff with ceramic balls. I inspected my diff after every run. The car handled fine. I'm running the Yokomo gear diff now in mod. Never tried it in 17.5 NR.

It depends. I'd start around 4.0 and compare my straight away speed with other 17.5 NR. If its too slow, I'd gear up. I also check my temps. I try to keep it between 125-150 degrees. I also run a motor heatsink and fan. Hot weather plays a factor on motor temps too. However, for a big race, I'll run the motor hotter than 150 and gear it to the moon.

Also, any other recommendations to reduce steering radius without inducing a v loose rear?
Anyone can help me with this?

When your steering is turned to full lock is the inside steering block (now w/ the nub removed) touching the arm?

Chances are the bellcrank arm is hitting the bulkhead first, also if you changed the button head screw in the bellcrank length adjustment, make sure its not too long and hitting the wings.

Well, it seems like my steering block can only steer till it hits the c hub. Whatever I do, it is limited by the c hub. What are ur maximum steering angles?

Yeah thats about right? Why are you looking for more physical throw?
