I asked Alexander and it was indeed to allow the lay shaft mounts to move more making it softer.
But you'll need the option centre post also.

Ill be trying that for sure as soon as I can get the centre post.

You need to buy the xray aluminum outdrives for the xray spool to use the spec r joints in your car without a problem. They are even lighter than the plastics ones. They come with blades to put in your axles too.

Care to explain? I've been using the Spec-R DCJs with Spec-R plastic spool cups, and haven't had any issues yet. The cups are getting some wear, but nothing I would consider abnormal.

I need to check what was the xray part number for them but it was an option to change the spool plastic outdrives with this aluminum ones that use plastic blades like your rear diff in that way it's less critical the reach of your axles inside the spool plastic cups.

Main advantage? I gives you freedom to widen or narrow your front end at the arms(not by using different thicknesses of wheel hexes).

Just a suggestion, but you may want to quote the message you're responding to. It makes it much easier to understand what question you're actually answering.

Any idea on what Diff oil for 21.5 spec class a few ppl has mentioned heavier diff oil but I can't recall anyone mentioning the weight.

Same with Shock oils too.

Any help would be appreciated.

It's for medium, flowing, asphalt track.

Cheers

I you widen the car at the arms then maybe but I would think that would be true of any 50mm or 51mm shaft with that setup. I don't run mine wide and have been running the stock plastic cups without any issue for a long time. I did replace a set over the winter just to tighten up the front end but nothing out of the norm.
