Would i be able to run those since they are a little longer? Would that effect any settings on the car??

I don't recommend using the 007 shock bodies on the 008-t3, there isn't much travel on the stock shocks. (007/ NT1 shock bodies are longer) and you might bottom out the shock body on the new car with old shocks.

In the Manual for building the t2 009 & T3 the thrust bearing grease and the main diff balls grease is the same grease & part number.

Every other car ive owned states to use a different grease for the thrust bearing (not so thick or tackey usually)

Is the xray manual Correct?

your kit should have come with 2 type`s of grease , a greyish black graphite grease for the thrust bearing and a yellow grease for the diff bearings. Hope this helps.

I actually started sanding my diff rings recently, and using associated clear diff grease (red label) and the diff slips less while running loose. the clear on the thrust bearing works, but seems to require more tear downs and thrust bearing rebuilds..

But it actually states the diff grease part number on both the thrust and balls & plate.

If this where the case would it not state the graphite grease part number as it does in the cvd part of the manual for example.

Either the manual is wrong on the T2 009 and T3 or Mr Hudy wants us to use the diff grease on both the thrust and main balls and plates as well.

how do you guys sand your diff rings? Just hold it down with your fingers to the sandpaper? I was looking into the tool the muchmore racing has. Does anybody know where i can get that tool from them??

I use an old T1 diff half to hold the ring. If you are careful you could use one of your current diff halves(the one that doesn't hold the pulley bearing)>

What is the best diff balls to use? Ceramic or carbide? I hear some people say ceramic and some say carbide.

John -

I use the 3/32 ceramic ones from RC4less without issue (stock are 2.3mm = 0.091, 3/32 = 0.093) $8 for 12 diff balls.

Just as long as you don't try to sand them to much, you can use the long outdrive (female) and use 800-1000 grit wet / dry sand paper. wet the sand paper and make sure there is a puddle where your sanding it. I like to do opposing figure 8's. Check the face often for the pattern and to make sure the groves that the balls were in are evenly wearing away. That and the associated grease and you can build an amazing xray diff. If i had to guess I was able to run about half the pre-load that I used to before building diffs this way. To reuse the thrust bearing just flip it to the other side. I used to only do this on pancars, but now its my standard diff build.

Obviously ceramic has the benefit of being lighter. They seem to allow the diff to slip more (read smoother). I run carbide just because they seem to work well. I have some ceramic balls but after the first time I tried them I switched back cause I felt they didn't have enough bite. Other people have used abrasive pastes to break in their diff with them.

Correct, if you take your t3 diff apart from the factory, you will notice that its no longer black moly grease on the thrust bearing
