For the gear diff I use a pair of tweezers to place the pin.

I don't understand about the steering rack. Can you explain further?

The steering posts is not suppose to sit flush with the bottom deck. I built a friends tcxx with a 1.5 washer instead of the kit 2mm on the center steering crank to clear the top deck.

Hey this is JJ,

The track had good traction but we had to use tire warmers due to the fact that the air temp was cold. Well actually my rear end was shortened not widened but still had 3 degree rear toe

Fred or Korey,

Should I be setting my ride height with the droop screws or by shock spring tension? I was told by a local racer to not use the droop screws because I needed some down travel for better weight transfer from the front to rear for more traction exiting corners.

Use the shock spring tensioner to set your ride height.
