I'm trying to change the rear springs for something harder. The XI Sport comes with dampers that use a 25mm spring.

I purchased after-market touring car dampers (Yeah Racing), but they are shorter (21mm springs). The Yeah Racing dampers work, but are too short to allow any droop.

Any idea where I can get 25mm springs for the stock dampers?

what kind of gearing can this take to get 3.8-4.0 FDR? I know how to do the math n whatnot, but I need to know about spacing. 48pitch
next what about sway bars? there is SAK-46 and it seems the car kit comes with some bits already, just need the other bits for the ends of the sway bar and then to the arms... what am I looking for? I'm looking to make it a USGT car.

Team Associated/Kimbrough 66T spur gear is plentiful around the world. You can squeeze a 39T 48p pinion onto that to get some very low FDR's.

Just need to buy the swaybars. The ball ends, ball cups, and wishbone mounts are all surpluss parts available in the kit.

thought you will need SAK-U316 and SAK-U317

I don't have enough parts left over for SAK-U317

I bout a 33-38 pinon set and a 73 74 75 spur for gearing options, went with the highest gearing right off the bat, not sure if its enough, but might be on a track. I bought a bunch of parts for the swaybar stuff, but have not put it on yet... the springs are super stiff, cant wait to see the grip when its 80 deg out...

BUT
I'm here to ask about my rear gear diff leaking... I seen it was asked a few post ago, and wondering how it went for that person?
I'm not really sure where its leaking, but I think its atleast leaking all the way around... and I do remember it leaking out of 2 of the screws... after they had been screwed in and sitting in a box for a day, or something like that and found it leaking out 2 of em... Its making a mess of the rear part of my car.
Edit: what is the green slime? google didn't get me far.

another thing is it weighs 1280grams and I think the front needs weight, as its very ehh twitchy when at speed and hitting minor bumps, changes direction, hard to keep in a straight line. need to be 1500 think it was for USGT, where would I be looking to put 300grams of weight? and what kind of weights to buy/cost?

The diff seems to leak from everywhere, from the screws to the mating between the two half of the diff. I put a little silicone on the screws and that solved the screw problem. I tried putting a little between the two half and stiff leaking a bit.

If it's oozing out of all the screws, you may have put too much oil into the diff. Once torqued down, oil should not leak through the countersunk screw holes.

If it's leaking through the gasket, you may not have covered both sides. Dip a q-tip in 2.5 million and use it to cover both sides of the gasket. Also make sure the gasket is positioned correctly and the screws are properly torqued down.

Hope this helps.

Well I took it apart as there was next to no oil in it.
I got some grease from my dads grease gun, no idea what kind it was, but it was kinda red/pink color. Clean the runny oil off the parts I wanted to grease,
the drive cub shafts, the pins and the underside of the drive gears?

Tried my best to get a decent amount all around the gasket all sides, and then poked the extra grease that was in the screw holes, out to the countersink part and spread that around. I did a quick drill test and seem to of held. put in back in the car and drove it for about 2 mins because it was soo cold... for some reason it was much stabler, less steering changing...

Then when inside I lifted 3 wheels of the ground and tested the diff again, guess its good for now, if it does it again, I think I will just put a bunch of the grease in it and call it good.

This time it also looked like it sealed better, by a few nanometers, all around the belt gear. It could have been that I put too much oil in and when torquing down I was feeling the oil/air compress instead of torquing down to seal.

Thanks guys
