As for sanding the diff outdrives, which part of the outdrive are you actually sanding? I'm still getting slightly leaky diffs so I'm trying everything. Do you sand the bur off the end of the outdrive? I'm a bit confused...



I've got the mugen super grease coming so I'm going to grease the o-ring (been using associated green slime), outdrive and shim behind internal bevel gears. When you grease the outdrive, are you placing grease in the slot on the outdrive?

Apply grease to the outdrive shaft so the grease is embedded in the groove. This leaves a ring of grease to lube and seal the outdrives. I use super grease. If you don't grease it, you can lockup the outdrive in the ring gear it is runs dry and gets hot.

Turbine_au , they are refering to the Plastic cup that the gears sit in ,lightly sand the whole face on a piece of glass and some 1200 grit wet&dry paper until the face is flat , you will need to run 2 gaskets when you sand the diff cup . I personally measure the whole width of the cup before i start and then sand down the width of a gasket (0.3mm if i remember right) this way the internal clearances are the same as Mugen intended but that being said most people don't go to this extreme..

Ahhhh ok, I get you now. So you're talking about the mounting face on the diff case where the gasket sits? Sand that till it's smooth?

You are not looking to sand the cups smooth but just to make sure that the cups are square. I dont think it is necessary but it wont hurt to try it. I did it on my first x5r but on my second kit I skipped this process. I found that just by using double gaskets, o-rings from carolinas, and applying mobil-1 grease to everything was the fix.

Does anyone know how to get more on power steering? i have great off power steering but it seem to push whilst gasing it. I'm using Jason Ashton's 04 national setup.

Try some or all of these:
Heavier front diff oil, like 7k.
Shorter rear camber link.
Longer wheelbase.
More caster up front.

Before you mess with anything else, make sure the shock fluid is clean, full and the seals are not blown. Then set your ride height. I find that most on or off power issues extend from improper ride height.

hey all

anyone know of good set of wheel scrapers for the mugen? I have tried the extreme racing carbon fibre ones but they are too weak and break so easy.

maybe some alloy ones or strong plastic?

if not i'm going to try making some

thanks all

Used some 2mm washers to take out the bump steer today. Was a bit faster when I stopped overdriving it. The only problem is, the threads on the steering balls don't hit the nylon in the locknut now. Anyone make a steering ball with a longer thread? I know about using loctite but if I can use the locknut like they're supposed to, that'd be better.
