If it is in the US it does not come with a one-way.

O kay, well I ordered the rings "just in case." They're a pain in the ass to put on, so I wanted to see if there was a functional reason other than popping off, and it sounds like there is. Thanks for the feedback.

The only time I take the rings off is when I rebuild the diff. Best way for the rear when taking a universal off is to remove the hinge pin for the carrier. Then you can remove the universal much easier. I could never get the ring on once the universal was in the diff.

I have found that is you squeeze the outdrive together a slight amount when putting the Blue Ring on that they go on much easier (with no driveshaft in the outdrive).

yeah, it is hard to get the rings on (especially when the universal and diff is installed) because of the fact that you actually have to squeeze the out drive 'prongs' together while sliding the ring on...

you may try a zip tie as a quick fix so you can run your car b4 the rings come in

The zip ties sound like a good idea.

Leave the rings on when removing the driveshafts from the diff outdrives. The knack is to angle the driveshafts as far as possible, then pull them out. As Pops said, to do this you'll need to slide the pin out of the carriers to enable the freedom of movement and also removing the shocks helps too.

A labour saving trick here is to file a flat on the screws that hold the pins in place. These screws tend to be on the tight side and strip rather easily. If you put a flat on them, you only ever need to turn them 90 degrees to remove the pins It saves alot of time. You'll only need to take the the screws out when you replace the wishbones.

If your blue alloy diff out rings still give you grief, file some small notches on opposite sides, then line these 'notches' up with the diffout slots when it's time to remove your driveshafts.

Taking the diffs out on the SD is a 5 minute job, quicker than any other shaft car I know of, thanks to some clever design features.

Hope this helps

Looking for some info from my fellow SD drivers...this is a ROAR question that affects the Nats in Portland this summer. I see they are offering Stock, 19t and Mod sedan at the nats...will a person be able to race more then one class of sedan and if so which combo...I wanted to ask here because I thought someone would know.

Thanks for any info.

Jeff
