Decided to ream myself out an 81 tooth AE Kimburough spur gear tonight... I tried as I might to make it as dead center as I can, but unfortunately,it has a tiny wobble to it. Even so, I think it is true enough to run. Its also 1/10th as loud as it was with the durango spur gear.

Machined spur gears should be available in the next week or so on the TD USA site. The sizes will be more in line with what we need to get correct final drives- high 70s to low 80s.

Ok, so I am posting from the track at the moment.... and have been here for 6 hours and have gotten a grand total of 10 laps on the track because I have been having nothing but nasty issues with my diff. It is built perfectly fine per the manual, and I have rebuilt it 3 times tonight here at the track (which is an amazing feet in and of itself considering there is 25 some odd screws that you have to pull in order to get it out)...

In my hand, the diff feels great. I can break it in and snug it down till its just tight enough, and toss it in the car. I get about 5 or 6 laps around the track, and out of NOwhere, "wam" the car will lose 100% power. What happens, is the center gear on the diff just spins free, and the outdrives sit still. If you grab both tires and spin them in opposite directions, the diff feels super super tight, but there is zero diff action.

3000 screws later, and the diff is out of the car... I disassemble the diff and pull it apart, but it looks fine in it's pieces. I can reassemble the diff all over again and get it back into the car... and it will do the exact same thing 5 or 6 laps later. I can't tell for the LIFE of me what is failing in the diff... all I know is this car is 2 steps away from the trash can ..

Anybody else having this issue? The diff was flawless its first two track days... today, i have 6 hours of wrenching for 5 minutes of track time. BAHH!!

Is it a four gear? It seems four gear guys are having the most trouble. No issues with mine. Yet, we will see

Buddy of mine set his up the same way. He brought it today and I was going to run it. Did the same thing....spun fine for about 1-2 mins then got tight and locked up. Not sure what the heck it was. He also had his setup in RM4 config.

I had another great outing today, I've picked up a lap from my first week just by relearning to drive 2wd Finished second in the A behind a really fast AE driver. Only way I can describe driving this car is confidence inspiring, the car really is better than the driver, at least for me.
