Speaking with one of the AE drivers in Aus, he was saying you need to open the out drives a bit more. So drilling a larger penning in the cup. A light sand wouldn't do much. Ill test this out over the weekend when i build my kit up.

Are you going to be at MSI on Sunday? Would like to take a look at the gear diff setup. Do you know if AE is working on their own version?

Anyone else notice that the assembly of the TC6 slipper spool now includes the 5/64" thrust balls on the short side of the diff outdrive? These weren't part of the TC5 assembly. What overall difference would this make?

the thrust balls should prevent the slipper spool from coming loose like the old one did.

+1

this was never a problem (without the thurst ball assembly) while running 17.5 stock and boosted, but as soon as I switched to 13.5 the slipper was coming undone all the time... when I asked around all the TC5 guys at the track run with the thrust assembly...

Rick Hohwart confirmed that it's a typo. -1.5 is the value that was meant to be there!

There seem to be a lot of typos with the identification of hardware and stock numbers, too!

Alright great! what a relief..... Maybe that manual should be taken down from the site until it is corrected? Are you guys planning on correcting the book and/or PDF?
