Did you put the layshaft holder on the right way? One side is flat, and the other is raised in the middle. Put this raised side on the bearing, it it should be slop free. Be sure to use thread lock on that grub screw.

For the clicking noise, I think it's the king pin falling inside the shaft assembly. I used a small dab of anti wear grease to keep it in place.

how have you done it????
You will need to ream out the center until it fit the spool do alittle at a time keep fitting it until it goes on....You will also need to dremel or drill up "very little" on the screw holes. That is it!

I am currently using the 3racing center pulley...but I am switching to and would recommend the 501x 18t pulley.....its easiers to put on and take off.

You can do it......

For Start I do not use tamiya kit diff ball..I up upgrade to tungsten.

Scuff your diff rings with sand paper 800gt....Clean

Apply Diff gease for the Diff Ball...not too much. The more grease the More Dirt!

Apply Anti wear for the thrust....Pack it in there ...

You will get a smoother diff.

Do not tighten it all the way down......you need to break it in with 4/15 sec sessions.....I use a Dremel....

Spin...tighten....spin ..tighten...X2

tighten until you get cannot turn the diff...then back the screw alittle... until the diff pulley will slip just barely.....

You will have to adjust this depending on how the car is handling.....pushing or loose.

DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE DIFF SCREW IT WILL BREAK.

It should be tight enough that you are unable to turn diff pulley when holdind both outdrives(like the manual states) in a lock position(using allens or some kind of tool). Once you get to this point you want to turn the screw back just alittle....And the pulley should slip just very little when appling firm pressure to the diff pulley.


OKAY

What he meant by that maybe is that when you tighten your diffs, tighten it until you cannot turn the diff anymore (how you tighten diffs) then when you reach this point, turn it the other way this time (counter clockwise) to just loosen it just alittle bit, maybe turn it at aroung 2 degrees or less...

That really depend on how strong you are.

But I normally use as much as 60% give or take.....100% of your strength should turn any diff with good grip.

If you put the diff in you car and lock the spur gear with an allen wrench.
you will be able to adjust your diff easier.

By hold one wheel and turning the other. The "key" is the allen wrench keeping the spur gear from spinning.

If it is too loose the diff will let you know by screaming when you slam on the trigger.

If its too tight it will click...too many clicks and your diff screw will pop....maybe maybe not.
