This was on the same track and dirt I'm running on. I think he told me he talked to Randy about those settings for this track, but I'm not sure.

Maybe I'll try that. What are your thoughts on that?
Randy says the motor is good up to 200. Mine comes off between 150-170 depending on the track and outside temp. You could probably go up another tooth and you could drop the CL down some more and this should smooth out the bottom for you without effecting top or even gaining some top end. (CL only effects low speed punch). Timing should not effect low end as well as timing ramps as RPM increases so that is a top end thing as well. I would take the timing out and go up a tooth and drop the CL and see how that works for you.

My rear torque rod bottoms against the case before the holes line up to put the screw in. Anyone else had this problem?

14T on the TLR is fine, your temps are good as long as you're under 200f on the motor after a full run.

Thanks Randy and Casper for the help. I'm getting closer and closer to getting it where I like it. Thanks for all the help.

Randy - I talked to you a while ago, back when I had the Durango. I was asking you for help with my rx8, pro4 4600 and the Durango 4x4 sc. I have moved on to the 2.0 and I'm loving it!

Yes it's off. File away at the ball end to make the diameter smaller. It only takes a bit. Make sure the screw goes straight thru and not at an angle.

Almost done building the rear end of the truck. Can't wait to get this thing running! Anyone have any issues with any of the axles fitting into the bearing in the hub? I'm going to have to do some grinding on one of my rears because it only fits half way into the smaller hub bearing. Other than that no issues..Am I the only one who had zero issues with the diff screws? lol

These have always been a tight fit. I have never had to file but you could. I always just forced it into place.

Im willing to bet its a burr around the axle stub or its a Manf error.

I've seen first hand that your casings are wrong. I've seen others mention it on here. How bout you guys fix the issue instead of pointing fingers back at the customer!

Yeah, the other one is nice and smooth and this one is really rough. I'm going to hit it with my dremel a little to smooth it out. It's not only in one place it's all the way around.

Try a little scotch brite pad on it first. It may just be a little bit of thick coating around the part.

Use a Scotch pad or some sandpaper and lightly sand it down.

Just got 3 more kits in... 2 are being shipped out but one ill be building again with the Ti screw kit. I'm wondering if the shock caps or diff screw issue has been revised? Also... Will the TI screw kit have different screws for the diffs?
