Default center diff cups

i dont no if any of u have expeirenced this but my center diff cups are starting to develope a notch in which the dog bone sits in creating slack and i was wondering if by switching the cups from one side to the other would help make the cup last longer until i get new ones

what do you mean by diff cups, or did you mean diff cup?

I would say rotating them would temporarily work until you get a new one. the cups are fairly cheap so its not a bad fix.

Yes, I think we all have had the center diff cups notch out. If you flip them, obviously the slop will show on the breaking side, making a very short lash delay when going on breaks. I'm sure the guy in front of you would prefer that you had instant breaks instead of instant power....

Flip them once then replace them for a race day or something.
