I don't think it is leveling off any. Lots of good info from many of the regulars if you just post to them............they will answer to the best of their knowledge.

I would say that when building the car the first time you should take it slow and make sure it is built correctly the first time. This gives you a good base to make changes off the car if it is built correctly.

What do you mean no spacers on the layshaft/spool? There should be 1 shim on either side of the diff/spool inside of the bearing. The instructions say 2 shims but that'll make it too tight. The shims that go on the ends of the layshaft are needed too. Just make sure everything is built straight, and like wyd said take your time. Also, with the stock CVD's, I'd suggest you rebuild them before you install them to make sure their built right. Use blue thread lock on the set screw and don't tighten down too tight. The coupling being hollow doesn't support the pin as well as the new ones that were just released. So if you over tighten the set screw, it can crack the pin without you even knowing. The CVD will come apart on the track even without hitting anything.

I do use the spacer on the layshaft, but I don't use the shims on the diff at all.
Without them there is 0.15mm of play, the shims are 0.2mm thick, so I haven't bothered.

The last CVD i checked had the grub screw so tight it broke my 1.5mm hex driver

I believe that I got mine from Tower They are a little tight at first but after they break in they're just fine.
