Default Duracrap evader diff problem

Alright guys, I got this POS hacked evader used through ebay and it has a little diff problem. The diff nut sticks out too far and dosen't allow the cvds to move, therefore locking up the arms before they even reach level. I've rebuilt the diff 3 times now and have tightened it enough to crack the thrust washer, but still haven't solved it. Any ideas?

Ah, figured it out. Took it to my LHS, turns out that duratrax's online instructions are wrong and the nut goes into the other outdrive. Figures.

Yeah you just half way in between the thread an then tighten the shock and keep pressing the shock in and out this will push out the excess oil,keep doing this until the shock rebounds fully and doesnt feel tight
