I just purchased a 417. Is there anything special I should do while building the gear diff so it does not leak.

This was posted by Jilles Groskamp over in his thread about building the new gear diff;

At the ETS we were not informed how to shim the geardiffs as we just got them for the race. After the race I have checked all diffs and tried to find the best solution.

First use sandpaper ( 500 ) for all gears and sand them down till it touch the whole surface. Then use 3 x 0.1 shim each side.
When close the diff, don't tight the screws too much.
At first the diff feels little bit tight but just run it in, inside the car, same as a ball diff.

Let me know how things are working out,

Thank you,
Jilles

Just posted some pictures of Jilles Groskamps car from the 2011 EFRA Touring Car Euros at www.EFRA.ws. All the team are running a slightly different setup. If you've got any questions, follow me on Twitter @RCRacingOli and I'll try to get an answer to any question from the team
