HI Dude,

do you have any pics of the T3? I presume this also means it will be fine in T2 008/009?

cheers

Ran my spec-r diff for 5 heats and a final and it didn't feel smooth after. Stripped it down and the shims have worn really bad and the 2 pins are worn to. Does anyone know where i can get new shims and pins in the UK? Apart from the wear the diff ran great and did not leak i was using a 13.5T.

No idea about who you can get them from in the UK, but just an fyi, the part number for the replacement gearset(which includes new shims & o-rings) is SPR010-G, & if you're willing to look overseas, Speedtech RC has them in stock.

Oh, & now that I've run it in my car, I think it's time I shared my thoughts on it, & I must say, I was VERY pleased with the feel of it. Started early in the day with some Associated 80wt shock oil in it, but it felt a bit odd(almost thought maybe it was diffing out), so I looked to use something else, & got some Sportwerks Diff Oil(which the bottle says is 100wt, but it flows more like 40-50wt shock oil), & didn't realize it till it was going in, so I decided to go ahead & try a practice run with that in it. And I must admit, it WORKED, car felt WONDERFULLY planted, & I ran it that way all night, & the car handled GREAT all night(oh, & this is on a carpet track, though the carpet is pretty worn & doesn't have much of a groove, so grip is at a premium)....

Yes, it fits in the 09 no prob. You will however need to use the 38t conversion (Front Pulley and Longer Belts) and 50mm rear driveshafts.

I ran mine last weekend for our big meet and it was smooth as butter all weekend. No leaking and used 80wt AE shock oil. I'm happy. I'm going to get one for the front as well and try it out with some heavy diff oil.

Should be as good as a spool without the front end abuse. We'll see
