I was missing some shims for the front wheels. The kit didn't come with the sweet xponder mounts either. I thought that was a bummer. Oh yeah, and the belville washer on the rear axle is too big to remove the tire without disassembling the diff. Still the best looking car I've owned. Should be putting the first laps on it tonight.

Yeah. That is one of the cool features of the car. I just expected the kit to come with it. It came with all of the other cool aluminum upgrades.

My kit was missing this washer too. Do you not need to use it? I ordered replacements from CRC but are the Associated ones the same?

I ran the car for the first time today and didn't use the belville washer. I'm not saying you don't need it, but my diff was super smooth all day. I didn't get much of a chance to shake the car down before qualifying but it didn't take long to realize that this is a great car. Within half a lap, I was comfortable going full throttle through the whole track. The car was very smooth and consistent. Definitely the best 1/12 scale I've ever driven. I did manage to snap two lower front arms in minor collisions. Both times it snapped around the front mount screw. May be the weak link (no pun intended) in this car. I'll stop hitting things and I'm sure this problem will go away. Great job CRC.

The black belleville washer is the "spring" to keep your diff setting consistent. Without it you are relying on the plastic locknut to not deform or move. One locknuts, it's not a problem but when they get old, they need help (or a new nut if you're a high roller<g>). You can probably get away without it but we have been using these in 1/12 scale diffs for almost as long as I can remember. I personally have always run with one.

BTW, the AE one should fit just the same and be easier to get locally.

Get the slapmaster thrust bearing for it and then you wont have to worry about the diff for at least a year. It will also be silky smooth, and not eat the inner bearings everytime you brush a wall.
