A little slop (not sure about 1/8) is pretty normal. I would just make sure everything in the steering rack is tight, especially the servo saver. For the diff, follow the directions in the manual. For a super smooth and long lasting diff, check out the B-fast diff rebuild kit. I have one in my T4 and the diff feels amazing!! Slipper clutch settings really depend on what track surface you are racing on. I like to have the nut flush with the end of the shaft and turn the nut 3 complete rotations to start out with. Loosen it up for loose track conditions and tighten it up when the track has a lot of grip. Hope this helps. -Doug

Recheck your servo saver, they sometimes are not as tight as they should be.
If you race a lot of different tracks or if your track changes throughout the day you need one of these

It makes changing the slipper setting simple as can be.
