Thanks, but I am am not a fan of that silver color. The other ones at Speedtech don't have the extra row of holes.

I am running the XXX-S on Ozite carpet with the manuals stock setting but replaced the springs to White Fr, Silver Rr. Shock oil is 30W.

The outisde edges of the front tires is wearing/rounding. Camber is set at neg 2 degress alla round.

Should I go to 3 degrees or if I go to 60W oil i/o 30W this should fix itself?

Thanks

Default Im thinkin that melting pullys is not good.

Im not a pro like most of you guys but im guessing pullys melting is not a good thing. My car was driving really crappy today so i pulled it apart for a cleaning and saw that the back diff pully was all messed up - all the balls are melted way up into the plastic. So how did i do that ? It wasnt overley tight or loose or dirty. I dont get it. Any info on this would be great. Thanks. D.J.

Usually when you cook a diff, it's from slipping. I would say it loosened up on you or it was set on the loose side.
Try running it just a little bit tighter and see how long it lasts.

I dont think it was slipping cause I check it after every 2 packs. I was thinking about it more and there was no lube in there when i took it apart - could that be it? Also i pryed the little balls out, do you think it would be ok to use them again or should i grab new ones, they look ok and roal on glass ok.

Your diff was loose if your diff balls are melted into the gear. That is the only way it happens. Check to make shure it was assembled correctly.

One other way to melt the rear diff wheel is when you are using the overdrive/underdrive pulley wheels on a high traction surface. The 42/41 wheel combo is what I am referring to.

Default Tightening Diffs

I bought a xxx-s used, it was already assembled, and I have scoured the manual on how to tighten the diffs. Is there a way to tighten them without dissasembling them?? I know with my xxx-t there was a detailed description with tightening the slipper, putting a hex wrench in the outdrive, yada yada yada, but the xxx-s does not have a slipper.....me confused. Can anyone help??
