If the defect is the same on all parts it would be easier to find the problem. They would need to see it to know though. They aren't asking for the part back. They just want to see what's going on. People with a legitimate problem with there part would happily send a picture for the free replacement.

You have to keep in mind, there are those people out there that would claim they had a bad part just so they could get a free spare. AE has every right to ask to see it in my opinion.

That being said I recently noticed the bottom screw hole in my bulkhead had been machined too big. I bought the car used. But it hadn't been run when I got it. Still, AE replaced the part free of charge and without question. Took me all of about 5 minutes on the phone and I had a new one in 3 days.

I have attached a picture to show the items of issue...
Somebody at a track I went to in AL had the same problem, He had the washers reversed. The big one goes on the inside and the little one goes on the outside. Not saying it was your problem just saying its somthing to check. I almost put mine togeather backwords the first time when I went to do it

I have no problem sending proof of the defect, and have sent a photo to show the defect. What bugs me is that the respondent to my email has seen the defect himself, Rick openly admitted that it is a known defect, yet the respondent suggests that the problem needs to be forwarded to the engineering department for evaluation. Really?

Many thanks, I have the correct washer in the correct place, but I will try flipping them.... See if that helps....

Default gear diff flaw

here are pics of my gear diffs installed showing the MINOR mold flaw that everyone is talking about. good or bad.

I feel it is a minor flaw and I will only be concerned if they leak. The Spec-r diffs all leak and everyone has been OK with them. Yes there are things you can do during the build to try to avoid a leak.

I built the Associated diffs as the instructions and their maiden voyage is tomorrow night. I will report back in after that.

The 7/8 is the part the ballstuds screw into. The kit comes with both. On the 8, the ballstuds are slightly farther apart than the 7

I have exactly the same "problem". But it seems that the diff is holding well. I havent raced with it yet, but will next Sunday.
