I would recommend anti-roll bars, suspension mount shims and an e25 toe block at a minimum.

The hard front bumper is a good option, but in my honest opinion, at 20 grams, it is a bit on the heavy side, especially for spec racing.

We will be uploading a new asphalt setup that is more aggressive than our previous asphalt setup when we open up after the new year. If immediate turn-in suits your driving style, be sure to check out this new medium bite asphalt setup.

You can but it will change the angle of the shock.
You'll have holes 2 and 4 available instead of the standard 1 and 3 on the suspension arm.
You'll need to flip both arms otherwise you'll end up with different geometry left to right.

The steering and corner speed with this setup is nuts! I think you guys will like it.

Hope everyone has a good and safe New Years!

Drop some CA glue in the hole, it should hold for awhile. Worth a try.

Ok I have a QC issue that is really annoying me. I purchased my car used, rebuilt the diff, and noticed thst one screw wouldnt tighten down. I attributed this to prior owner, so I purchased a new diff housing, habd the same issue. At this point I didnt knownif it was an enlarged screw hole or a scew thst was just a tic too small, so I purchased a new diff kit (the whole thing, outdrives and all) I just built it and have the same issue. Has annyone else notice tbis on the DO5, O6, or Ghost. I am about to buy a new diff case, but at this rate I coukd almost get a new car kit. I really like the quality and look of the rest of the car, but this diff is killing me. Please help with any suggestions.

Both of my D06 cars have diffs that do not leak. None of the screw holes had any problems either.

Mail me a a set of internals, screws, and a new housing from vbc racing shop. I will build it for you.

I know how to build a diff. Ive done it on 1/8 off road, and a couple spc r diffs in my tcx's. Its an issue with the screw hole. I out very litle pressure tightening the screws. The other 3 actually get VERY tight. I will order the forth case and if it does the same thing I dont know where to go from there. Do any other companies diffs fit this car?

I will try xray t4 diff on d06 tonight and let you know. Stuck at work until 7pm PST.

Edit: iirc the bearing sizes are the same. 15x10.

My first attempt leaked, and in case it's the same thing, I didn't notice that on the right diff half, there's a small square bit sticking up, and this has to match with the space on the left half. Once I figured that out , no problem.

Thanks for the info, but I realized the case was keyed before my first build. The leak that the issue causees is small, but I would have to rebiuld it every 3-4 runs to not see any performance issues

I don't rebuild my diffs unless I see a problem such as leaking. My son's xray t4 is about 9 months old and still has the original fill in it with zero leak. LOL

Ive had the same issue with my Ghost. It leaked before I even put it on the track. Ran it any way to get things set took it apart at the track and didn't put as much diff oil in as I did when I built it the first time. I m sue I was pressurizing from a tad too much oil and leaking out through one of the screws. didn't see anywhere else that was a sign of leakage.

xray diff is too wide. it won't work.

Xray diff = 19.0 mm
D06 diff = 18.0 mm
