Default will the d8t diff housing fit the d8

Hey guys, my D8 the front diff housing is stripped out, now my track only has the d8t diff husing. Now i dont have time to get a new one from amain, and im racing tomorrow. I need to know if the D8T front diff housing part number 8000-2 will fit the D8 which is part number 8000-1? Im figuring it will fit with no problems but not 100% sure, so im asking yall!!!


Thanks
Dustin

they are the same.

Only one that is different is the center mounts as they have the extra spacers for the D8T

It should not be touching the diff case. The input gear may need to be reshimmed. How many shims to do you have between the input gear and the bearing? It could also be too much slack on the input gear when you attached the center drive shaft. Make sure to push the gear as much as you can toward the center drive shaft and make sure the drive shaft is as far onto the input gear as possible.

Also, you may need to adjust the number of shims on the diff itself to compensate.

Yeah man my problem is the front hinge pin holder the screw goes through that strips out, and thge hinge pin comes out and the arm sags! Now your problem is just shmming, as long as the ring and pinion in there are acutaul hb D8 ones you shopuldnt have a problem just reshim them and drive, but I wouldnt reck ammend driving with it rubbing

Thanks
Dustin
