Yeah, it seems to be an issue with multiple kits. If you notice on a lot of pauls setup sheets he runs the 50mm shafts ... I have run the 50mm rear shafts on all of the t3 cars for driveshaft blade clearance.

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!

The comment is referencing using 1* outboard toe blocks and no shims inboard...

I haven't received my kit yet to verify, but yes, that could generate some issues with clearance when you are narrowing the back that much...

If the 50's were included in the kit instead of 52, then there would likely be complaints from people who were attempting to widen the rear....

Wow....didn't realise that lack of instantaneous response to a specific issue makes Xray drivers bad people?

I know that on this thread, the other Xray threads and the dedicated forum on the teamxray.com site there is lots of input and interaction from the team and consumer community.

I would suspect that with the kits landing in people's hands right now that many of the would-be posters are actually building, testing and tuning...

Regarding dog bones hitting the diff. Tamiya also has this problem. Some have shaved down the blades. Other, like me, are running 42mm dog bones in the back. You need to stock different dog bone lengths for cars with rear track adjustability.

Honestly, I have never experienced that on my 417, and nobody else around here have, as far as I know. Stock 44mm in the rear, with 1XA/1E = 3deg toe-in.

Don't know about the 417 but I had the same issue with my 416. But even with the Xray it takes very little trimming of the pin pad to get the clearance needed to eliminate the bind problem, just doesn't seem like such a big deal IMO.

I should have ordered from Canada My kit shipped yesterday so I won't get it until Fri or Sat. My first big race, with the 2012, will be the Vancouver Island race

Rubbing was probably on my 416. On my 417, If I remember correctly, I didn't bother with the kit 44mm dog bones because of the problem on my 416. I believe it depends on the diff type. I remember dog bone blades getting near or slightly rubbing my ball diff.

No, Xray says that 52mm works when you run more than 2.5 toe in and less than 2 of camber. Just read your manual: page 17 last paragraph.
Or just check the official Xray forum.

Once again Chris I have to agree with you.
