Not sure if the above makes sense, let us know via return if this works better for you

Run the car for the first time at the weekend and the servo saver done its job so i cant have been too wrong with the build of this part
Thanks guys, much appreciated, I will try this method, anyone else find the manual wrong for this part?

I just got my kit in yesterday, I wanted to know with the gear diff is there any sanding necessary like the spec R diffs? Im having a problem with my diff, it does not feel smooth when you rotate from left to right, I feel some tension.

The only sanding I did on mine was to knock the mold flash off all the parts. Using 700cst mine is silky smooth. Of course there is some "tension" when turning the diff back and forth due to the shearing of the oil, but it is still smooth with no rough spots.

Same here. I built mine last night and it is very smooth. I also noticed that you have to make sure you scrape all the flashing off with a hobby blade.
entitymugenmtx, if you put both outdrives in, the clear O ring, the metal washer then the pin in, do the outdrives spin freely? There could be a problem with the side gear (304930). That's all I could think of.

The XRAY Bearings are very good. I have run a set of ACER Ceramics in my 11, while my 10 (orignail T3) ran XRAY bearings. I could not detect a noticable difference.

For those of you using cleaning putty in the front gear diff, how much do you use and how do you apply it?

Going to run a gear diff in the front for the first time, and I've never built one with putty before.

Thanks!

Default 52mm rear axles

Has anyone else had any problems with the rear 52 mm axles hitting the rear gear diff when not using a shim for additional toe? I'm in the process of building mine and have noticed it looks like it's not going to be able to adjust to 2 degrees of toe in the rear? The car comes with 1 degree built into it and I want to use my 1degree outside toe block to give it a total of two degrees but just looking at it I think the driveshafts are too long?

Xray claims the 52mm axles fit with their gear diff, but when I fitted the diff to my 11 with 52 axles I had to shave down the blade to keep from binding when the suspension compresses. I thought I had the necessary clearance, but when I compressed the suspension with the shocks off I could feel the driveline bind as the axle drive pins passed tdc (with a 1.15 shim for 2.5 degrees inboard toe and 2 degrees neg camber). In the end I just went back to the 50mm axles I had in my parts box, but if they are going to include the gear diff and 52mm axles in the kit they ought to fit and still allow setup adjustment within the range of what is listed on the setup sheet.

... and that explains why I can't get mine to fit with the 52mm drive shafts.
thanks

I had the same problem with mine but a guy I race with didn't.

I had to space the rear roll centre mounts out by 0.2 mm at the front and rear, this will let me have the same rear toe but have a slightly wider rear track.
