I know at one time the Xray oil measured out differently than the others. What I mean is the 5k oil was not 5k cs. Also do not use the S3 orings in the diffs. You only want the S5 orings that seal the outdrives to the diff case.

The only desireable hop ups for the 5r would be the lightweight pillowballs for the front. Lots of guys use the ball end style chassis braces and plastic rear hubs, you could call these hop downs. They make the car smoother and less edgy on rough tracks. You might also want the carbon shoes for your clutch unless you run a track with really good bite. Some use two rulons and two carbons.

screw that - if you are not going to use the stock clutch, get the fiorni turbo sliding clutch - very smooth and lasts forever!

Funny thing you mention the ball end braces. I got a set from a friend of mine that had them laying around. I going to stick them onto my MBX5R this weekend. It seems option parts are exactly what they are, OPTIONS.
