Is that it, just no diff balls, seems like the diff would need alot of shimming afterwards.

Actually I made my first spool out of the composites but after thinking about the spool and after seeing how some aluminums come out after a hard race or two, I think I'm gonna convert it to the steel outdrives. Mine is basically like Johnny's but I made diff rings out of the AE double-sided tape.

ya, lol i cant see the composites lasting very long as a spool setup in stock or mod, hell they dont last long as a diff!

where have all the regulars on this thread been? it looks like alot of them have switched to xray from what i have seen.

Some tips which you may find usefull for freeing up the drive train

1. Sand the gaer boxso that the bearings are not pinched (ie. blueprinting)
2. Shim the drive train correctly so that there is no binding
3. Flush out the thick grease in the bearings and apply light bearing oil
4. Use high quality bearings
5. Remove inner seals of the bearings in the gear box

Depending on the bearings you use you may need to remove the seal so there is less friction.

Most seals tend to rub against the bearing cage causing friction. Most people just remove one seal on the side not exposed to dirt.

Tigeryan,

You shave the bearing recesses in the diff cases.

As for bearings, if you don't mind maintaining your bearings every week you can go with no seals for the least friction.
