The hinge pins should be tight in the hub carrier and the caster block. You can drill a hole in both parts and use a set screw to remove slop.

The manual for the WC isn't up on the AE site yet.
They are the same length and there are no special instructions for the bearing caps. Their installation is self explanatory.

I run a gear diff on asphalt. Silicone ear plug material works well. You want to start by filling it as much as possible then you can remove some material to tune it.
I have also played with 1 million weight silicone. This feels the best in my opinion. There is a company that sells 2 million which would be even better I think.

I had a race on very high grip carpet last weekend and had two major problems with the car:
1. grip roll
2. very slow cornering
The setup sheet shows my setup in its final development stage on sunday (I arrived with a quite common setup on saturday). The overall handling/balance was very good, but the car was like slow motion in the corners and wanted to roll in the fast flowing corners.
You can try one or more of the following:
1. Widen the track at the suspension mounts. I think your car is too narrow for very high grip. I would add 2mm to each side at the front. Then possible add some to the rear starting with .5mm.
2. Longer wheelbase. Go to 1mm as shown on the setup sheet.
3. Less negative camber -1 to -1.5 all around.
4. Lower ride height if you are allowed to and the car does not drag.
5. Lower suspension mounts. Try 1 step at a time all around and see if this helps.
But it could be something as simple as tire additive. I would start by reducing the time you leave the additive on the front tires. Try 30 minutes in the rear and 10 minutes on the front to see what happens. You can also cover less of the front tire. At the very least do not extend the additive tot he edge. But 50% coverage might be good.
