The bulkheads are still black are they? I can feel that purple "upgrade" verions by HB would be available in the near future.

Sorry for the confusion, the kit come only with 1 direct pulley for the rear. if you dun intend to run center 1 way, you will need to buy another direct pulley.

Can someone tell me if I have built the Diff correctly. The large belt pulley bit in the middle of the rear diff (not sure of the right name) just sits on the diff balls and can move side to side (couple of mm). Is this correct?

Not just a purple upgrade version...
more like a purple Hara Edition or all black Surikarn Edition.

maybe I should wait til next year for these kits to be released with all the new option parts that are still under developement.
