How come they get the double diff, while aspahtl racers have to spend extra money on a spool which should be the set up on asphalt kits to begin with...
Ummmm....like I said...99.9% may be true where you are from but not everywhere. I can see it in mod but in 19T and stock...the regular joes are runing one ways. At least....out here they are.

The kit I recieved here in New Zealand contained 2.9mm lower chassis-2.4mm upper,ball diff front & rear(U.S kit )but 3 degree caster blocks & standard black shock springs(U.K kit).I have had my kit for a week and a half now and I am led to believe that was when the kit was released here in NZ.Nearly all racing down here is done outdoors on asphalt.

Entire kit for the market should be here in shops in the next couple of weeks.

The only thing that I have heard that was missing was the new center pulley design.

Has anyone had the same problem I'm having. I can only screw in the ball stud on one side of the rear uprights. It's like having (2) lefts. Snaped one ballstud trying to screw it in. I'm getting alittle pissed, since corally sent me (2) new ones to fix the problem. And the same thing is happening to those. Now I have (3) lefts.

Sure, but as it was too tight I ran a tap through it and all is good. Shoudn't happen, but it is not something brute force will fix, as you have found.

Yeah Juan I had the same problem...

If you look one side of the upright looks to be "counter sunk" with the uprights being zero deg. they can be used for either side of the car...I bet with the 2 deg ones the "counter sunk" side is right.

No big deal. I just took the longest screw I could find in the kit and ran it thru a few times from both sides. Then treaded the ball into the side I needed.

Hope this helps.

I already striped a couple of screws, but I will try running it through a couple more times.
