Actually, superglued sidewalls is something that is widely used on rubber tyres on carpet, it reduces the sidewall flex.

Less caster can help as well.

Whats up guys, just wanted to give another heads up about some new (and old) parts that might make life easier. Schumacher came out with some new diff rings, found out a way to make them completely flat, no need to sand or anything, pretty cool. I just built a diff using them and it is better than any diff I have built with sanded diff rings, absolutely no high spot at all.

There's only one problem, they share the same part # as the old Mi2 diff rings (U2408) and of the 5 pairs I got, only 1 pack had the new rings. Hopefully I cleared out the old stock and they will be shipping only the new rings from now on. You can easilly tell which are new and old, as the new ones dont look like they've been punched out, both edges are completely square.

These rings don't have a notch like the Mi3 rings do, if you want the matching outdrives without notches, order U2572 and U2571 outdrives.

So just to clarify Randy, will the 'new-style' diff rings fit on the MI3 outdrives?

I know I'm not Randy, but I am certain they will fit. The Mi2 diff and the Mi3 diffs differ (ha ha) in that the Mi3 diff has indexed outdrives and matching rings. The Mi2 diff is not indexed and neither are the corresponding rings. So Mi2 rings work on an Mi3, but Mi3 rings won't work on an Mi2.

If I remember corectly one of the better team drivers has a preference for the non indexed rings because if some how the diff gets realy tweaked theres no chance that the ring will ride up on the indexed section and cause the diff to lock. It will just rotate and remain flat. I wanna say it was PW or Mr. Kerr or . . .?

believe Andrew is right.
the MI2 rings fit the MI3 diff....
I've run the MI2 in the front...I found the diff to need less work just a guess probably the rings...but the diffs basically felt the same in nature.

I bought the Mi2 diff at the suggestion of the Shui
could be wrong but the MI3 rings are little less in price....it's been a while since I've ordered them.

Looks like your question got answered.

Having rings that dont lock will also help with the life of the diff, rather than the diff balls slipping on the rings, the rings will slip on the outdrive.
