I kept rotating mine onto the next spline until it was almost dead vertical with centered trim.

T4 arrived yesterday

No chance to build it until the start of next month but I have heard of people not using the oring in the diff without any problem? (the xray o ring is prone to stretching/going out of shape).

So, should I build them with or without the rings, as I think I may need to make some diff oil changes in the near future once I've had a shakedown with it.....

Don't bother with the main o-ring, just make sure you fit the gasket properly.

I also 'seal' around the output o-rings with some thicker silicone grease to help prevent friction on them as well as helping to seal the diff.

Thanks for the heads up.

I was a bit nervous not fitting the orings as I will be running double diffs, and they are not exactly cheap lol

Well, you already have to take off the top deck which ~10 screws, 3 screws out of the spur itself, mess with belts, etc... This is just two more screws for the right side bulkhead.

It's not that bad. You'll just have to remove an additional two screws from the bottom of the right side layshaft mount to change the spur.

ok point taken,are there any benefits to losing the td screws ,or when would you want to take them off?

I've not tried it, but according to the graphic, low grip or extremely high grip.

Although the bearings can't move around, the layshaft mounts do allow a small amount of twisting when the layshaft is in position.
That is, the layshaft won't move out of mesh, but also doesn't 'lock' the two sides solidly, so it allows some chassis twist.

I found it made my car more consistent (screws removed) at my local track in Mod.
I haven't had a chance to run it in my usual 13.5 boosted class yet.

would you say wlrc had high grip levels recently?
just curious,i have tried removing the forward 2 screws but couldnt feel any difference and lap times stayed the same at amcc,im trying to get the rear toe down to 2.5 or 3 from 3.5 but i cant get it around the sweeper as fast with less toe

so really im looking for other solutions to rear grip,rear tyre wear isnt an issue but im killing fronts within 2 runs and still have a small amount of push in the slower corners which if im right losing some rear toe will help with mid /exit steering
