I'm pretty sure they do Clint. You should try some plain silver ones. They will reflect UV rays better and prevent distortion and the deterioration of the nut action....

Have you checked your pullies? Could have something in the teeth. Anything stuck in your spur gear or pinion gear?

Also look at your outer hinge pins and make sure they are in place. Check CVD/Universal joints as well.

Check to make sure the ballstuds for the inner camber link mount aren't too long. If they are too long they will dig into the bearing holder for the diffs, and put a lot of stress on the 10x15mm bearings causing some interesting noise.

Other than that... clean your pulleys really good, and make sure the rear brace is on correctly. There is a side with a larger cut out by the layshaft, and that larger cutout goes on the drivers side of the car. If you don't do that it will also put some unwanted stress on bearings in the center layshaft.

Hope that helps!!!

I'm not really sure which sauce is the cause to my random postings On carpet we used paragon and on asphalt we are using tire tweak and buggy grip. If this is what you are currently using be prepared to loose some brain cells

To make gearing a 3.5 motor a bit easier. I've been told that I need to run an FDR of about 11 to 12 and the 16t pulleys seem to allow for those ratios better than the 18t pulleys.
