I recall the Beam's Integra body was pre-drilled. Are the body posts lining up with the pre-drilled body?

Yes, body post line up perfectly. For the front, you'll need to use the rearward position for the body posts. Also, there are no window masks. The original windows are opaque stickers so if you want real windows, you'll have to mask them off yourself

@mikeygray... is 100k mean 100,000 cts or wt? sorry to ask you this question seen i'm new to this diff oil...

thanks guys
I'm not using oil at all, just some cleaning putty between the gears.. still gives a little diff action, but better drive. Is effectively thicker than 500k oil... plus doesn't leak

3. Integra - can't remember what wing he ran
4. Civic VTI
5. Civic VTI
Not sure the order of the rest but no other cars really challenged the top 5.

I've seen others locally try the Golf and 406. The guy running the 406 has tried the racing wing and liked it but setup is most important. Getting the car not to roll over the front tire in the corners and getting it to pull off the corners have been the biggest challenge for me. That's on carpet.
Thanks dude!

thanks for the info., that's a pity. Here I meant the spec-r gear housing. I was hoping that since they took the trouble to mold a new case they could have changed the internal ratio too. It would have been more elegant and offered more protection to boot. Of course there may not be a need/demand for a different internal ratio and why they didn't make it.

thanks. will use it w/o the cover.

not sure on the offset part but will fiddle about with it and see. thanks.

Rodzilla's setup sheets indicates he's using Tamiya 600 shock oil for the fronts.

Can I use Associated 60wt instead?

TIA,
Ron

@ Tryhard. You mentioned the TITC drivers using hard rear/soft front setups. Any written down?

Should be fine...I've even run it with 550 weight recently (all out of 600) and no adverse effects (atleast that I could feel at the time)

Thanks for the info.... so you are saying that no matter what oil or cleaning putty you put inside the gear diff...it will work for any turn motor?

thanks
