Thanks guys. I knew it was a solid diff, but I didn't know it came with it. I'll be getting my G+ tomorrow, anybody have any good carpet setups?

Yes the PRP towers are nice. I have been running with my front camber links in the center top holes for about a month now. With this location you can gain more mid cornering traction and exit traction. With a tight diff, it really makes the car aggressive on corner exit and sweepers but aids in corner entry too. Give it a try!

Guys I am assembling a xxx-s. It is my first time with this kit though. I am assembling the belt tensioner assembly and the pulley on the tensioner squeezes the spur gear. I did rotate it around clockwise as stated but it is still touching the spur gear and rubbing. Is it supposed to do this??????? or where did i go wrong?

Does the G+ come with steering bearings?

Also, does anyone know where I can find the Blue Alumi Servo Mounts for the XXX-S? Besides ordering from Europe.

Thanks.

Default Bumpsteer?

Anyone notice a large amount of bumpsteer(towout) on our cars? I just installed speedtech bellcranks and never looked when the stock bellcranks were on the car. I used 2 small losi washers to correct it, should I have?

Bumpsteer is when you compress the front suspension and the front wheels either go from being straight to tow in or tow out. I installed 2 of the gold losi ball stud washers under the ball stud on the bellcranks to correct it. It might need a little bit more, like a thin armature spacer.
