I've finished building the kit, went together very easily. Now I've just to work on getting everything setup correctly.

In regard to the diffs, what do you mean by don't overtighten them? Could I damage them by overtightening them? Thanks!

The Corally UK site has information about a 1 PC. delrin diff pulley. Does anybody know its part number, and if they're available here in the states? I'm having a difficult time making the 2 PC. pulley spin true.

Here's the link to the 1 PC. pulley. I found it by way of http://www.corally.co.uk.

Those aren't available yet, I am sure CorallyUSA will receive them shortly. They were prototyped at the Snowbirds. I have yet to have a problem with the stock pulleys.

Thanks Jeff, I'll keep an eye out for it to hit the states.

It's only my front diff that's giving me trouble. I've tried everything I can to get those three screws even tension, but the thing has a slight wobble to it, no matter what. If they've gone out of their way to make a 1 piece, maybe I'm not alone.

syndr0me...... well, the diff pulley wobbles on the diff balls a little. You might be seeing that. I wouldn't worry about it. Just tighten down the screws and call it good. My pullies have performed flawlessly for several months.

CONGRATS TO TOSO FOR TQing the ROAR Nats!!

So all you RDXers...got a question.

I got a kit with the one way in the front (don't know the part number) but my rear diff is mostly machined alum., not alum with a plastic pully like most.

Was this the way all the kits came or am I lucky (or unlucky)

Thanks...

You have kit 00166. I am surprised to see you with aluminum diff pulleys. Where you bought it must have had it for a while. You will want to contact CorallyUSA and get Delrin diff pulleys, you will also want to check your thrust washers inside the diff halves. They should be copper colored. If not you can get the brass/carbide ones from CorallyUSA.

Is there something wrong with the metal one?

I have an extra "normal" diff I can put in...

Thanks Jeff for the fast response..

Well, the aluminum pulley seems to heat up the diff balls quite a bit. Now I am not talking about the aluminum diff halves. Just the pulley. Check the thrust washers too.

You can get the delrin pulley and thrust washers for free from CorallyUSA.

Hey Jeff,

Ran the car for first time yesterday and everything went well. When you're running modified on carpet or asphalt, how much tension do you use on the front belt?

Well, I don't have the belt tensioner on right now. My belt doesn't seem too loose.
