Funny how the UK price seems to be considerably cheaper and yet we used to buy it then, and now your having to pay the same price now as we pay now, yet people kick up a fuss about the cost of it all, try adding $140 onto that price (last years rates, try $160 using todays) and THEN your at the same place the UK has been for the last 4 years.
However, its much easier to blame someone's new acquisition than your own countries ecconomy isnt it :P Takes less thought to come to that conclusion.
Nah, not having my M-D, quite impressed with it really, while i've done indoor/carpet racing for the last 6 years, a few of us have decided to spend the 'summer' (in its loosest of terms) outdoors so im gonna get a chance to play with this multi-diff. I have half a dozen diffs from the last couple of kits so im more than happy with the deal (though i had a 1-way and spool for the FK04).
A mate did offer one solution to the problem, from when people wanted to run the cells on the right side, and use a 1-way, it needs a old diff pulley, and then you'd cut it so you had a flat circular peice and no teeth, and then use that as a spacer to move the pulley onto the correct side.
I'm not saying it does work, but im told it does, someone else might want to look and see if the 2-3mm extra 'shimming' of the pulley would be significant clearance.
Its about as much of an option as the idea of locking up a ball-diff in order to make a spool i guess. Most of us should have an old diff pulley lying around, could be worth a try!
