A liked the diff up front with 300,000 oil in it but it was slower so i took it out again
Thanks for the response. I saw Hagberg uses cleaning gum in his so I was considering either using that or 500k.

oh sorry, I meant front uprights!

my post was a little misleading as I was talking about the rear changes, and then also mentioned the uprights....I call the rears, hubs anyway, but it's all good If anything I'd like to run more than 4mm washers under the rear hubs, but wheel clearance issues wont allow me, so its lowering the inner rear camber links it will be instead.

I was waiting for Xray come out with a gear diff but it seem as if they are not going to, should I go ahead and get the spec-R diff? is there any problems with the spec-r? like leaking or anything else? thanks.

What shock length is everyone using? Also is the kit setup a good place to start on high bite asphalt?

Is that shock length for asphalt? Any suggestions for starting setup on asphalt high bite?

I run that length for carpet and asphalt. I'd check to see what Hubbard was running at West Coast; thats about as high bite as I can imagine for asphalt. There might be a set up on the XRay forums...

Ok. Thanks for the information. I'll try the 63 mm shock length. One more question, if your shock length is longer does that generate more traction?

I run 64mm on both surfaces. The kit setup with a few tweaks should be a good place to start with for stock class racing, the main options I would add would be a gear diff (1000cSt Oil) for the rear and 50mm driveshafts all around. Actually it's just the opposite, making the shock longer will generate less pack which in turn will yield less traction.

If you mix up the roll center blocks how do you tell them apart? Are there etchings I'm missing?
