Yes under the ballstud on the steering knuckle in either hole A or B is where the washers go...

adjusting the height on the steering link i am also referencing the washers under the ballstud. You are going to want to add/remove the washers in different thicknesses until you have little to zero bumpsteer.

A gear diff will add a lot of steering and free up the car when the bite really comes up. Folks that run Mod like it becuase it not only adds steering, but is less maintenance between runs. It really has its pros and cons.

For me, I race stock. You just cant beat a buttery-smooth ball diff. The ball diffs are a bit lighter too, less rotational mass.

They are apparently very good and smooth, other parts from RSD looks good too for TC6, softer bladders is one for zero rebound.

no one has an exact date yet, RSD is sold direct as far as I know, sending stuff anywhere.

Yeah I am using 6 deg. Also have 10mm ballstud so it was long enough to not rip it out. It's ok when wheels are straight but if they are turned left or right they hit the outside eyelet. Its wearing the edge of eyelet. Not a big drama but thought I had something wrong , since other setups I have seen have same specs but mention nothing about that

I cut a little bit of plastic, you could do it also, works for me. Not a big drama like you said.

Thanks for the answer, but did you mean gear diff in your first paragraph?

I am sure Rick H has one and is on this forum often. You could always PM him. He and Steve have been a huge help.

+1. High quality products at a very reasonable price.

This one is Keven Hebert 17.5 from Cleveland last year:

The Steve Weiss WCRC Club race setup should be pretty good on carpet too. I'll start with my WCRC Club race setup at the IIC carpet race. It should be pretty good.
