So please talk me through this a little before I pull the gear diff out of my spare care and make a complete fool of myself...

Smear some putty on the gears and run the diff without the usual oil?

Yes, you would fill the gear diff with the putty. The putty would let the gear diff work with some spool like characteristics as the material would "lock" the gears.

Instead of putty, you may want to try 2.5m cst

+ YouTube Video

I saw on ebay, 1.1 x 4, 5, 6 hole tapered pistons. Could someone explain the benefit more holes and a tapered piston might have. I am assuming better movement within the shock, smoother and quicker rebound???

I am running the bd7 in dayton. Well, not doing too much running lately. But, I have parts galore so let me know if you need something.

I also heard if you run pistons with more holes, say 5 or 6 holes, you need to run a thicker oil to compensate for the larger holes. Is this true?
