When you rebuild your diff:

1. take off center driveshaft
2. attach stock motor
3. hold one tire in your hand
4. run the motor at low speed for two minutes
5. hold other tire and run motor for another two minutes
6. check for slippage
7. tighten until no slip


this should seat the d-rings on the balls. Then when you tighten it up, the gear will spin true

the little click sound and slight binding is because you still have a little flashing left on your diff outdrives. also causes wobbling. when the flashing comes around it is hitting the bevel gear.

I'm using the standard shims and graphite gears.

Cheers

THIS CAR ROCKS
I had a couple problems until a freindly neighbor hood Yok Guy Glenn G...Hey Glenn if you read this Thanks a bunch.
I found you have to add the 1-1.5mm spacers under the blocks (which helped with the ride hieght issue)...I was running without them and it seemed rough. With that and a good diff shimming everything was right as rain until what everyone who had conserns about open diffs happened to me....Yup a rock got in there....The second qualifier and my car was all over...I only managed to make the C main....But thanks to GOD and my LCG re-dialed (pun fulley intended) I bumped to the B Main and came in second only because I couldn't make it through all the lap traffic fast enough...I had the Motor (thanks go out to EA) and battery (thanks to Promatch) and if I hade two more laps I probably still wouldn't have cought up...LOL But hey I didn't have another battery ready for the A main anyway so it was all good So got the First place in the B-Main cause the real winner bumped...Story of my life....B-Main Master...LOL
Only suggestions for you guys is to go with the 2.5 rear block....helped a bunch. Get the drive train as free as possible without slop and the LCG can win big....
I think I am totaly thrilled with this car. Hope everyone else loves it too.
I am going to either make some or see if Steve (speedtech) can get more of the Lexan covers for the diff cases (although they are for the EVO IV) I can make them work for the LCG.
Stephen <><
hi shookie,

I tried the spacers under the suspension mounts to no avail. I'm at 6.5(front) and 7.5(rear) in height. When i lift the front end and wiggle the spring it is sloppy, same with the rear.This sloppy wobble is not supposed to be there correct? I'm so frustrated! Someone please have one of the Yokomo guys post pic with setup ex; Dampers(long or short body) yadda,yadda. Just something visual and written for me to grasp. I'm about 2 throw in the towel.

Use short bodies and ends and the length by the sounds of things should be about 60mm.

i really cant think of anything else that it could be, what springs are you using and are you using the blue alloy rayspeed spring retainers that you HAVE to use? are you using the lower hole on each on all hubs?

ill post a pic of my car to show you at the rear becuase its easier to see.
