It's certainly possible if they don't provide enough pressure against the bolt to hold its setting.

Cool, I'll mess with that tonight. I don't have a manual handy, so for a sanity check, washers go: ()(), right?

Correct...or if you have your arm blocks spaced out more than the stock 1 mm, you can use 6 washers and it'll also be more responsive to small changes in adjustment.

Yea - I've been meaning to make it up to Springfield and race with you guys. Right now I've got all that I can handle down here in St Louis. Scott Lucas told me about your track. He has been racing up there with you guys I believe. We've usually got some great racing down here with Drew Ellis , Skip Starkey, Jimmy Piersol, Larry Stone, Steve Smith, etc... It's actually an accomplishment to make the A and perform well. Fortunately, my Corally is doing well against all the non-factory XRay's.

We've got a big race this weekend (Memorial race) with factory support (a bunch of Drew's sponsors) and plenty of door prices. Check out our thread. Hope you can make it down here some time (if you guys want to race this weekend - come on down, it's a 2 day race).

This weekend I'll be trying out the 6 degree hub carriers and 4.0mm chassis.

I'm on it I will see what I can do ...Going to look in the post now to see what's up.......I been helping Scott He's getting better thanks Kevin

Has anyone mounted the new Motor Guard on one of the older chassis yet? I have 2 cars, 1 with the 4mm chassis and one with the 2.9mm and I don't want to kill the chassis. Is there a certain drill bit/countersink that anyone recommends? How about measurements for where to drill?
Thanks!

There are reasons they come in a "Diff Rebuild Kit".

Yea, I totally deserved that. :-D

I inexplicably stripped out a post that the battery strap tightens down on during a nasty wreck. That's the first time I've damaged one of those, and I don't tighten them very much at all to avoid tweak. I guess that's a decent spare to add to the collection.

Hey Jeff, Tell the Corally guys if they make a new pit towel in the color scheme of the new header cards (grey, red) I'll buy two. Something that doesn't snag so much would be cool too.

Obviously I don't expect them to produce towels just for me, but if they're considering doing some in that new color scheme, it would be hot.

Okay, last question. Do wheel hexes from any other manufacturer have the same dimensions as those from the RDX?

Anyone have any words of wisdom on the motor guard?? Hey Jeff...Dave at Speedzone in CT is a great guy and is moving Corally product like you wouldn't believe. Turned him into a believer and I think Corally will push "Brand X" to the side in his shop now!

I have used some Tamiya ones in a pinch, but you have to shim them a bit, as they are thinner between the pin and bearing... creates a little slack. on the plus side, they offer 4, 5, and 6mm wides...

i get those tight spots in a couple of my diffs, too... never thought of the clip, tho! ill be calling ya shortly, Jeff.....

Well, the screws are 3mm so 1/8" might be a bit big. I have not put one on so I dont know how it fastens down. If the screw goes through and into a nut then a 1/8" should be fine. 3mm would be tighter though so it doesn't shift.
