Spool is in great shape, I am getting a stretchingof the pin holes on the CVD's , so I have little slop, but it holding up pretty nice.

When I blew out my Thrust bearing, I took the balls out of a Xray thrust, and built my own bearing with the two thrust washers.

Running 5 cell, I really dont know what it weighs, all I know is it passes tech.

I have been running a 19lb HPI spring in the front as it is a little softer then the stock one. Also running Xray 30wt oil all the way around

About the rear diff thrust...will the Schumacher Mi3 thrust work?

What does your car weigh in at ready to run?

Yep...maybe a little oil in the ballcups...or just holding them down when adjusting...that's what I've been doing...firt time I've had this pblm on a TC...I'll eventually get Shumacher ballgrippas...they're tough and dont come off.

From Turnpike: exit on Atlantic Blvd and head west about 6 miles to University Dr. Make right on University, to the 2nd light, Ramblewood Blvd. Make a left on Ramblewood, and pass the MIddle School on your left hand side and turn left on the street right after the middle school(11 St?) Follow the road and the Park in on your left hand side...

Call me if you need help getting there:

The size is 3mm. Acer seems to have the right ones.

I believe the 2* of arm sweep will help the car turn in alot and little out so by going to 3* I dont think would work really great. But theres no reason to not try it.

the more inboard toe= more agressive cornering, less inboard toe= more stability

I find they come off easy when trying to adjust something, but they have not come off in an impact (yet).

Thanks for the tip...Acer's products are really top notch...just ordered their ceramic nitride 3mm diff ball set...A buddy of mine has a similar ceraimic nitride pack on his and they have lasted almost a year now running mod class motors every week...amazing how they hold up so well.

Keep in mind the HB Cyclone comes w/ 2.5 deg of inboard toe up front- and that car has amazing turn-in...it seems like the S400 is a tougher, more refined, and updated version of the HB Cyclone...so maybe it'll also work well at 2.5 deg upfront...
