But I want to be clear on one thing as I'm about to make my initial order...

If I buy the "Spur Gear Shaft Bushing Long", I won't need the "flanged 5x8x2.5 bearings" correct? Or do I need both?
Hello

With the longer bushings you won't need the bearings.

Another question before I order. One option part I'm getting is a second gear diff to run up front. I don't drive well with a spool.

My question is..., when running gear diffs front and rear, what weight oil would you run in each?

Rear diff you'll want something in the range of 3000-5000. For the front diff you'll either want some 1000000 oil or silicone ear plugs. Jeff Jenkins might be able to fill you in on how he had his front diff set up.

I read that post and followed that link but... doesn't that pretty much lock up that front gear diff turning it into what is effectively a spool?

With all that putty in there, how much slippage can you possibly get.

You'll get some movement, it'll also be better in any sort of impact as it'll give a bit.

Perhaps you would be better off with some 1000000 oil in there instead. Really depends how tight you want the diff.

When I ran the diff up front in another sedan I changed the oil for the Ofna diff lock fluid, part OFN10230. This stuff is very thick and makes the diff act almost like a spool. There is still some movement but very slight. Worked so well I decided to go to a spool and I've never gone back. My S1 has the front spool stock and has been a delight to drive.

I haven't done it myself yet, but I am definitely going to order the v2 swing shafts to eliminate the chatter the stocker's have.

Longer bushings are the parts to fill up the freeplay between the center pulley to original bushings, otherwise u have to shim with 5mm shims to fill up the freeplay. The bearings are still needed inside the pulley

He means .cripsy won't need the flanged bearings. The ones that come stock will suffice. I preferred to use the flanged bearings myself though.

I never run with the flange bearing, the shaft won't rotate much.
No melt no failure.

If you do get the White bushings, there is only sertion spurs you can use. I found thar rw are the best.

The Kimbrough spur has a thicker inner width than RW or Panaracer style (HPI/Xenon, etc) spurs. With the thicker spurs the white bushing are too long.
