Did anone have trouble with the rear diff during assembly? It seems very sloppy. I took it apart a dozen times and it doesn't seem right. There is too much play in it. I put it together exactly as the instructions stated but I'm about to pull my hair out.
The rest of the assembly went extremely smooth. Anyone out there with ideas about this diff?
I have the same problem and thought that it was a manufactuing defect. However, I think it is a design defect and was meant to be sloppy. Dont worry too much about it as I think it does not affect the car's performance. Just ensure that the diff is tight enough and does not slip.
Mine too is sloppy. Took it to my LHS to get an experienced guys view and he said ďthats sloppy! But wont be a problem to the performance of the carĒ.
He then went on to mention a little tip he had learnít from Andy Moore. Andy has replaced the 2 spacers in the diff (part nos. Z857) with an additional ball bearing - part no. B020. Reckoned this made the diff more stable when running.
Iíve still havenít run my Cyclone so canít say if this makes any difference.
