With the hara and surikarn, the front diff is obviously ciritical. Also, you will want to pick up a full set of pivot blocks for carpet as the included ones give limited tuning options. Last, you may want to pick up the aluminum diff halves, for your front diff.

Didnt know they were supposed to wobble. Is this when you do the rotate test in your hand before installation? I thought that it had to be snug but not tight. Maybe thats why I fried my diff. Please comment.

if you cooked youre diff it means it was slipping when the diff is set properlly and its tight enough the pulley still wobbles a little now zombies on earlier posts said to put a bearing where the little black washer goes in the pulley which works but the wobble is there just not as much .

Zombies,

Thanks but no need for a special trip. I didn't know they had one in the shop. I will take a look at that one. Thanks for the offer.

John,

Thanks for the heads up. I will see you Saturday. Mod if you dare......

I suggest everyone that runs carpet foam, put the Associated diff screws in their car. I broke one in 19 turn last night just driving along.
