On the diff there should be 1 shim on each side as per instructions, put them both on the long side of the diff it helps free the car up.

(one on each side) but there was way to much side to side movement of the diff in the gearbox for my liking, and I don't like my diffs to rattle in their housings eh.

For the sake of having a bit of free play (as near as I can tell 3mm worth at the spur) I get consistently a 45 second spin time.

Now if I move just one shim on the diff that free play almost goes completely to the point of being barely detectable (should make for better pick up right) but the spin time is consistently 40 seconds and makes a "god aweful" (comparatively speaking) noise you'd think the gearbox is going to strip itself.

So the question is sloppy and quiet or noisey and better pickup?
Are you using the stock bearings? what did you do to them??

The best I could do is 3 seconds on an SSG. I too would like to know how to free up the drivetrain even more. My bearings are already washed out and re-oiled with Trinity Royal Bearing oil.

I'm looking at my carbon prop shaft. It wobbles at low speed. Also, I'm using Ti axles and alum front input shaft which may contribute to less spin time.

I do have all the heavy stuff in it at the moment so that would add to the momentum when I give it a good spin.

Yes I am using kit bearings at the moment, and I've flushed them out and re-oiled them with trumpet valve oil. Very very thin but I'd need to re-oil every couple of days (or runs for that matter) depending on the track conditions.

I wish I was 6'5" but you got the heavy weight part right.

And the ones in the SDW feels different, like they are made of delrin, becuase I compared my new New Yokomo Graphite arms to the SDW, they look the same but feels different.

Default Part number for SDW arms

Does anybody know the part numbers for the SDW suspension arms. Are the front ones even available yet. I ordered some SD008HW, - are these just the rear ones ?

Hmm, does anyone know if ZS-010A really is the CV dogbones for SD? My memory is lost and i can't seem to find a bag from them, found the art number on yokomousa though but it's a heap of bones there '
*edit* nevermind, i found the number (ZS-010RSB) at Speedtech

has anyone swapped out the SDW's universals for dogbones?
if yes, which ones did you use for the front/back?
would the ones found on the SD work with the SDW?

Thanks in advance!
