I had my original set split because I'm a he-man on the shock caps when tightening them down, but I've never had a hole appear.

Like Skuba Steve had mentioned, the HB or Tamiya bladders work really well. I just take a dremel with a sanding drum and lightly sand/shave the edges slightly. They are a lot thicker and stiffer too, so you'll get a little more pack (thats good). They are also even more low profile and give the overall shock assembly greater oil capacity.

Default Lap Times

I have my 2011 ready and will have limited track time before our first series race and was wondering on carpet if I went out and ran it with a rear ball diff and then switched to a gear diff do you think i would see a differance in lap times? Anyone have any input on this? Thanks

Depending on the level of grip on the track, and what fluid you put in the gear diff will dramatically affect how the car feels in comparison to a ball diff. I prefer gear diffs on higher grip tracks, and ball diffs on lower grip. The ball diffs are a little easier to drive, but I think the gear diff will produce the fastest lap time if setup and driven correctly.

You'll just have to try it and see for yourself! Start with 1000wt oil and go from there

I just take a dremel with a sanding drum and gently work my way around the outside edge... it's hard to measure so it's basically just a matter of taking off material a small bit at a time and test fitting them on the shocks until it's comfortable to build properly.

I'm running 17.5 with my T311 and I'm using the Xray 96 spur and I can't get the rear motor screw through the spur gear to adjust gear mesh. Are you guys enlarging the wholes in the spur gear to get the motor screw (button head) to go through the spur gear?

Mine fits fine.
Silly question but you are trying to get it through the bigger hole as the kit spur has 2 different sized holes around it.

I'm not using the kit spur. The kit spur is 48 pitch and I run 64 pitch. I'm using the Xray 96, 64 pitch spur gear for 17.5 non-boost. What spur gear are using. And yes I am trying to use the larger hole on the spur gear.
