Would you have the part number for the FTW fan kit? I'd like to try that out. Thanks.

7 5 3

I just finished building mine and I have put in the 5 5 3 set up as a base line. I figured I would try that for a practice day, and then try out 5 7 3.
I run 7 5 3 and it works well for me. I like the stability it gives going into turns and how when coming out of the turn it makes the front pull harder, fits my driving style. Here is a video of my truck running those diff weights.

I'm the all black truck. I end up third behind Hupo and Kinwald.

I'm extremely happy with the fit and finish of these pieces.
Mine came today. They're black instead of chrome.......weak.

Yes I know they'll work the same, but it's not whats pictured on their website and they don't hold the same bling value (I figure those boots won't last long and I'm not going to replace them).

I hear ya! Same thing happened to me. Ordered them up and was disappointed to see them black. That natural finish would have looked good with my BCE chassis.

I changed the diff fluid in it. It still had the original grease. I noticed that the diff pins had grooves in them from the sun gears, are peas replacing these with the Chris pin set ups?

Thanks Brad
If the collar is that tight then you have cross threaded it and have probably ruined the body or collar or both. You should never need a set of pliers to adjust the collars. The o-ring makes them a little tight but if you take the o-rings off the collar should thread on and off with ease as long as your threads are cleaned out of dirt. When I did mine I had to use an xacto knife to clean out the threads to get the collars to go on properly.

So Santa just dropped off a few SCTE goodies. What springs are people running with the aftermarket spring kit? Also what swaybars? I also got the TLR tune up kit. What pivots/degree are people running?

all depends on your local track conditions.

most people will run black fronts and orange rears, 2.0mm bar up front and 1.8mm bar in the rear. most people run stock settings with the adjustable hinge pin holders (0's all around).
