grub screw is so you can get the cross pin in. Install the cross pin then put the grub screw in before filling the diff with oil. Just tighten it until it's flush with the inside of the diff case.

I haven't had any problems with the o-rings. I replace them maybe once a season.

O-rings last good in my experience.

Not 100% on the purpose of the grub screw. I've used it to slide the pin from the outdrive easier..I guess yes it could be used for bleeding when your putting to diff together, so excess oils exits...

There were very few of those Hard Anodized Towers made, their regular is the standard anodized blue and black, with very select few parts getting the Hard Anodized treatment. It seemed as though with the MP7.5 there were more Blue Fioroni parts, and with the MP777 there were more Black and now with MP9 they are back to Blue.

Your good going with leaving a "Two Sheet" gap as stated in the manual on the Pinion between the case and the Universal. Its basically the thickness of two sheets of paper. As long as you have the 0.15mm shim on the diff (ring side) you should be ok. You may just have to recheck your universal gap to case every now and then.

Ok it sounds like your saying I only need this shim if I'm using a shim over the outdrive between the bearing and diff case also? Is that what your saying? Or do I shim like in the pic regardless of having to shim between the outdrive bearing and diff case?

Does anyone have any new, good indoor setups for a regular indoor sized track?

I use Tebo setups but he doesn't really have much for indoor (obviously not too common)

They are made by a company called 6mik, from Europe I believe.

You should watch Tebo's tech tip videos on building and shimming MP9 diffs. He has a lot of very useful info in them that will answer all of your questions.
