Hit the chassis with the Dremel to eliminate some of the belt drag.

The drive train is tight at first, but will free up once you run it..
I appreciate the info.

Thanks, Mike

Question, it seems that I have to rebuild my diff after every race day, is this normal??? I think I'm not doing something right when building the diff but when I'm done it's locked down (meening it doesn't slip) and it's smooth. Can anyone help??? How many coned washers should I be using on the diff bolt???

After 20 or so pacls of stock-both my diffs were still as smoooth as new. But after 5 packs of 19t-the rear has started to show a little grittiness-but far from needing a rebuild.

I have 4 cone washers and stealth lube on the diff balls and black grease on the good thrust washer. The good thrust washer is the one with the copper colored race-not the stamped alum one.

For me-I think my set-up unloads the insde rear too much in fast-tight corners and I slip the rear diff a bit. maybe!! I think the diff itself is fine.

Are you using the alum. diff pullies or the delrin??

I believe the kit calls for 4 coned washers...

wannabee, I have the black delrin pulleys ....

rayhuang, I have the ceramic thrust ball/washer set up on both diffs now but I have tried both types that you mention. Maybe it's the amount of lube that I am using??? Do you also put grease on the coned washers???

Nope-no grease on the cone washers. No carbide stuff in my diffs-at least i dont think so!! I use very little lube on my diffs actually. I think they tighten up with less pressure-so therefore the balls and rings take less load and they diff should last longer. Thats my theory anyways. I do pack as much black grease into the thrust washers as I can though.

Can anyone give me an idea on how tight you keep your diffs?
Do you tighten just until they not longer slip?

How about Sunday Ray? I know it's not a "big race" but it'll still be fun.
