Yes, I am talking about the rear hubs. Do the trinity rear hubs move the ballstud out, or just allow to to adjust the height?

Thanks,
Josh

Default Trinity Hubs

The original trinity hubs only allow you to raise and lower the ball stud. They use the same spacing as the stock hubs and with 2 #4 washers under the ball stud, the ball is supposed to be in the same position as the stock hub. They are off by a small amount but not enough for most to notice.

The CRE kit still keeps the ball studs in the same relative postion as the original hubs but change the pivot point of the dogbone (CVD in their case). This shortens the dogbone and creates more dogbone scrub. This makes the car generate more roll stiffness under power and load. It will help the car square up on extremely slick tracks. There is a trade off though, the car will not handle the rough stuff as well with the added dogbone scrub.

I just tried to adjust my xxx-nt diff and the wheel just spins, does not tighten??? Now I have NO diff action whereas before it was pretty good. What might have happened? This is my first adjustable diff. Thanks, Tim

Forget it...I found it. The locking nut in the left side outdrive is stripped out I don't know why that has happened but I'm on the phone with my LHS now!

The only difference in the Sport is that is uses a single sping in the diff instead of the 8-12 bellville washers. Other diff parts are the same.

The Truck looks like a converted buggy. But it has differences.
Yes, A-Arms,Shocktowers etc. Chassis too. Your better off buyin a MFE xxx-t. Plus, The gear ratios are almost the same but the buggy is a tad lighter than the xxx-t so they changes the ratios on it. But the same diff gear is used.
