Does anybody know the specific reference of this rings?

TRA2362. Personally, I'm liking the RDRP ones better though.

You should glance over the FAQ when you get a chance.

Erik Everett who is one of the top racers here in Florida did it and I copied his setup and it works beautifully. I can out turn anybody.
Everyone should try it for themselves for sure but did you ever try the stock setup after fixing all the stuff that was messed up with your setup? Glad you got it working for you but if you didn't, not really a true comparison.

the only thing 'messed up'was my caster inserts backwards.

Everyone that has tried it said it works and I run with Erik Everett and copied his setup and voila my car now works. I tried stock in the beginning and it sucked.

My diff problem was separate from my steering problem.

A diff that isn't rotating correctly can absolutely have an impact on steering but whether it was the SC hubs or that, glad you got it worked out.

In other news, for you stock drivers, I tried out the RC Shox Slipper eliminator this weekend. All I can say is WOW! Compared to the Exotek eliminator I felt a lot faster and picked up .5 on my hot lap. The RC Shox eliminator was 2.6g lighter than the Exotek.

Steve seriously I know my car better than you and not sure wtf the problem is you have here with me.

If it was the diff keeping me from turning I would freely admit that.

It wasnt. Move on.

The sct hubs work . If you did actual testing you could comment since you didnt you cannot. I did. And Erik did.

He didnt have diff problems..smdh

I agree. You should know your car best. I don't have an issue with you at all but I was simply checking if you ever tried it again after correcting the issues. Once again, glad it works for you.

i checked on the exoteck website and dont see the aluminium diff nut listed under the srx2?

also my oem diff nut is also slipping in the plastic on a brand new diff kit. at this point I cant tighten it and I now cant even get the nut out. it just spins and i cant loosen it. any ideas on how to remove it with damaging the rest of the new parts?
