i know what you are saying but now i already unassembled everthing that i screw on the chassis and the chassis still the tweak as what i say previously.

achupp2: its hard to say how often, some set-ups just burn threw diffs for me and sometimes my diffs last forever, but when one goes crunchy it is best to rebuild the entire thing meaning a new thrust assymbly and diff balls, you can flip the rings. it is also important to the life of the diff to set the proper tightness before you hit the track, obviously for stock youcan get away with a looser setting with out roasting the diff as you could in mod. I dont have a number of turns because i feel that if I were to say( all the way tight and two turns out) you would ruen the diff right there by making it to tight, so i usually put the diff in the car and test it by holdong the spur and one tire and turning the other tire untill it takes some effort to slip the diff but it should not skip the belt. hope this helps paul

Guo Chean: if that is the case i dont have any other suggestions, i think that your only two options would be to proceed building and im sure that the car will run great anyways, or to call Rca and try and get a replacement. the team and the company totally stands behid their product because we all think that it is the best. you can PM me anytime with any questions or reguards, Sorry i couldent help more paul

superslow: as for the pinion spur and tire size for stock i think that maybe EA or someone could accually point you in a better direction than i could, sorry.
as for the double pinks and 30 wt: yea it can work if your track is right, the 30wt is good everywhere x-ray 30 is accually thicker than most others 30wt. the dp front tires are somewhat scary though, for the most part i still highly recomend standard dp-orange front tires just because if the traction comes up atall with straight dp's they have the tendency to frey and also become very twitchy and just plain hard to drive and inconcistent.

You trying to have me throw my first races or something.... Thanks for the info. I won't need the foam help until Vegas. I don't think I'll run rubber tire again this time around.

you get the car together so that Paul isn't typing for the hell of it???? Let me know when I can come and get it so that I can rebuild it. You'll be getting a new set up car to run or sell.

I just want to say thank you Xray for a fantastic car and Travis Schreven for a wicked stock setup!

Them and only them, managed to get me a win and TQ in stock, and a TQ in 19T at the first round of the WCICS series.

The 007 took all the TQ's and wins!

Thanks Again
Rod

With regards the pinion size. If your track is tight, a 29T. If the track is open and you can carry speed, 30-31T. Hope this helps!
