Default RC8e Build Problems Help

I put together my RC8e and the center diff seams much harder to turn then the front/rear diffs. Is this normal? I took it apart and could see nothing wrong. Seams to have a rough feeling to in not as smooth as the front//rear.

is it doing this with the motor in the mount or off the mount freespinning the drivetrain?

Well, it's a bit stiff to turn in my hand when I have the center diff. I have not put it in yet I just built it rechecked it. Can spin fairly smooth but I can feel much more stiffness then the front/rear diffs and I feels the gears more. They gears inside are aligned I just checked as well as the slots matching.

Steering is also a little stiff. Shouldn't the steering have free play?

I think the center diff is ok, it's not too bad now.

One thing still buggin' me though. The steering is stiff. Can I use my Associated DS1015 in this or will it only be able to use a 1/8 scale servo?

And last thing, the servo saver keeps pushing the steering to the right like a spring. Does the sprint on this do this on purpose? It's always springed to the right.
