Default XRay T2 Prebuilt Differentials Run out of the box????

Do the Prebuilt Diffs come ready to run or do they need to be tightened?

They have to be installed in the car to be run then yeah you have to tighten them.

The instructions that came with the diffs said that they need to be broken in before they are tightened ????

I definitely recommend breaking them in/seating them after installing them in your car, but yes, the factory assembly on the XRay diffs is good.

Thats right. one way to 'break in' the diffs is to hold one wheel when ur car is connected to a battery and accelerate with your radio, hold that wheel for a couple of seconds then swap over to the rear wheel and do the same.

After you have done that a couple of times tighten up the diff to your likening. or to start off tighten the diff enough till it dosnt slip.

There might be other ways of running in the diff but thats the only way i know.

I run the prebuilts right out of the box. I put about four laps on them, bring it in, tighten a little, run another four laps, tighten a little. At that point they are probably as tight as I want them, and ready to race.
