i built them as per kit? but i think that maybe i was running them too tight so when i build them i tighten it up until theres just a fraction of slip

i found out over the weekend that you can use the schumacher thrust bearing insted of the bearing thats inside the cyclone diff, i had to add a little thin shim to take some play out of the diff pulley but it worked pretty good i got the diff pretty tight and it was still very smooth. I did it pretty quickly but i have a few bugs to figured out but i think that it will work really good . I ran it twice with no problems yet. Im going to work on it this week and see how it works at the next race.

Has anyone tried the new spool drive cups on the old TIR center section?

From what I have seen it goes rough very quickly, more than other makes ... I run a RDX, my son has the HB...

One other point that spur gear .... I have seen a few cars with massive runout .. To me it looks like the holder has the wrong size for the shaft ...

Is the 'edit' shaft a better fit ?

i have found that the wider pullys on the diffs make your diff smoother and it stays smooth for ages
