Have you checked that all of the aluminium parts are not bent? If so, try replacing the screws that secure the aluminium parts to the chassis with new ones. This can get rid of many tweak problems as the screws may have become slightly bent and it can be hard to notice this

Hope this helps
Thanks Elliott,

I have all the screws removed and the tweak is almost gone. I found on Toni (Toni sport) already ordered new screws. I'll report back if I have changed everything.

Hi,
I find that a softer oil in the diff makes the car change direction faster and become more aggressive.

Harder oil gives more on power steering, but less turn in, in my opinion

Hope this helps


@kiloolli
Good to hear, let me know if the new screws help

I found on our track which is a tight track\ technical the gear diff in the rear would push on coner exit, so I use gear diff in front and ball diff in rear. If I run the ball diff a little lose the on power steering is better but I have some slip, should I use 800 instead of 1000 in the rear or more somthing on the suspention like less rear toe???? Is my experience with the gear diff correct?? Thanks.

Default Shimming of suspension arms - binding?

Is it common for the suspension arms to bind with the recommended shims from the manual?

The rear suspension arms from my kit was spot on, but the front suspension arms were binding. I removed some shims to rectify...

Anybody else experience this? Just wanted to make sure I didn't do screw up something else during the build.

Thx

Anyone know what parts are needed to build a ball diff.... I'm not sure what all comes with the diff halves.

Is the following list correct?

51446 - Diff halves, screw, nut, spring, thrust washers, thrust balls, and blades (I saw a pic that looked like all these parts were included but the description only states the diff joint, screw, nut and Y parts (blades))
51442 - ball diff plate
42142 - 3mm ceramic balls (12) - need 12 total
or 53379 - 3mm balls (10) so would need 2 packs
53988 - 37T pulley
42111 - 850 bearings (2)
9804372 5x1.5mm spacer

Hi, yeah, harder oil in the rear gear diff will give more on power steering but a little less into the corner... I prefer the gear diff as there is no slip compared to the ball diff

You can also try things like less rear toe like you mentioned and a stagger in ride height (little higher rear)

Hope this helps

It is common the easiest way to rectify this in my experience is swap the 0.5mm shims with a 0.3mm shim
