Default Lab C01 / 02 a bit confusing?

Hey guys why don't we merge the thread as i believe that who needs support for the 02 there isn't as much info and help as there is in the 01 thread, after all differences are quite minimal.

Default Kevlar diffs

Hey people, just installed the new Kevlar Front/Rear Diffs

The material since its slippery doesn't hook that well to the screws so be careful when tightening.

The rest looks great but whats strange is that i filled the front with 120,000 and the rear with 60,000 and the REAR feels harder than the front how is it possible?

Maybe it needs some work?

Air bubbles/pocket?

Just for a test we used a shock vac pump when making our diffs. We placed a large ball of cleaning gum in the base to consume a large part of the volume of air and placed the open diff on top and began evacuating the air. The large amount of bubbles expanded and rose to the top, it was 120,000 oil and the amount of air bubbles were unexpected. Whether it made a difference or not I cant really say. One thing is for certain though, a diff that's rotating at high speed will apply large centrifugal forces to the oil and will create a hollow center, where it's really needed.

We've been advised to filled the diff to beyond capacity and while it's a messy job, the diffs last a long time and are consistent. Our's finally stripped bevel gears after many months of use, well beyond the time I thought they would last.

I did use a vac pump and let it rest for an hour to be sure and re vacuum. Oil is filled up to the top for sure!

Something is binding. Also; gears are too tight if diff action is not smooth and feels notchy.

Kindest regards,
Lars.

When you build a new diff you should always refill it after one run. After the diff has been used the oil gets in all the corners of the housing. This will lower the oil level to the minium amount. How thicker the oil is, the more important this becomes.

Also the new kevlar diffs hold more oil compared to the standard diffs so they should feel slightly softer. Because they hold more oil the diff will be more consistent during long runs.

All the parts are available, but not in a upgrade kit.

Yes, only as a complete kit. Capricorn only had 100 cars produced, so it's limited.

Thanks

No, problem in asking. For the simple reason that it was what Capricorn informed us of as their distributor...
