I can not remember the part number but they are like diff rings that are sand paper and also help because they are alot lighter than the regular spool, unless you plan on running Mod then I would say order one from Steve. www.speedtechrc.com
Hope this helps,
Stephen <><
Thanks shookie. Will they be a direct fit, or do I need to modify the pads?

Thanks for everyone's help. I've ran about 6 different cars in the last year, and with the Yok, I've gotten the best tech support.
And some people say the Xray is the best in that department I know all about tuning, but as with any car, I just need to learn the tips and tricks to make it more reliable.

Thanks again,

Chad

Define "loose," does the drive-shaft move forward and back, or do the pins on the shaft sit loosely in the drive cups?

same question here.


The only answer I can think of would be to make removal easier.

its the drive cups. the one that moves inwards and outwards so u can take off the drive shaft off. is there a screw or something that goes in it? i dont think that it can just move freely like that. kinda weird

I had the same problem, i had nikkis light weights input shafts and they were a tad skinnier than the stock shafts, i went ahead and got the yokomo lightwieghts and they soo much tighter.

EDIT:
Well, on each drive cup, there is a pin and o-ring setup that holds the drive cup to the input shafts, front and rear. There is also an o-ring in the rear input cup to keep the main drive shaft from moving front to back. Its sounds like you don't have that o-ring in there.

Also, there are shims between the front input cup, and the bearing, outside of the diff case for the front end. Trying to narrow what it could be. Hope this helps.

Sorry, thinking about another car The input cups are held onto the shafts via pin and large o-ring that goes on the groove of the input cup.
