Looks good KO.. I got the clamp off eBay.. serpent vector has them (not at the moment)

You should do the shock mount mod when you get a chance.. you'll love how it makes it easy to do shock work.

Yeah I had the same thing happen to me. My suggestion, get teh trinity bumper brace (the matt francis one) but not the red matt francis foam bumper. Then take the stock brace off and put it there in its place, use the swaybar holes to mount it. The trinity brace has a smaller area but its much stiffer, keeps teh bumper from folding back, and doesn't hit the shock shafts

Axiom5B-Luckily I still have those upper bumper braces!!! _That bummed me out as it also broke the bottom spring perch and no one had a spare. We hardly ever have a Mod class so I was really looking forward to it. So I just raced my TC3 in stock class.

Default rear diff slop

I just built a new G+ and find that I have about .040 side to side slop in the rear diff housing. Anybody else noticed this and should I try to shim it to take some of it out?

Also, how much weight can be saved by replacing stock steel screws with alum or ti screws?

Post Diff Movement

I have been running mine this way for several months with no found ill effects on performance, diff wear, or anything else. It is better to have a little play than for the diff housing to be molded so closely that some would squeee the bearing and cause binding along with other problems. This space is left also if you desire to shim the bearings to center the belt on the pulleys. You can use very thin brass or even electrical tape. Only shim on the chassis side. This of course is a very fine adjustment but can give you even further drivetrain efficiency. Make sure to leave a small amount of play even if you do shim. But as I've said, I've run mine without any shimming and my car rolls very free.
Hope this helps.

timc,
The diff slop you feel is fine. When the car is running the diffs center themselves because the belt is driving them. The play you feel is not enough to ruin anything and is not detrimental at all. You wouldn't want the diffs pressed right up against the housings to create drag now would you?

I just put a TiR screw kit in my car, I think it was about .5-1oz lighter than the stock screws. I don't really remember my car's weight with the stock screws(was somewhere around 52.5) but with the TiR screws I'm only 51.8oz

Thanks, Jeff.

Where did you get the screw kit and how much was it?
