Default spec-r xray gear diff mesh

hey all, recently built my first geardiff went together smoothly. but i think the gearmesh may be off because when i drive my car it makes a sound going around corners that sounds like a gear mesh issue.

i know to check the mesh before fluid is put inside, and if its too loose to put a .1 mill shim behind the pin and if its too tight to sand the large gears but i cant seem to get the right mesh and get this noise out of my car.

and no it is not a pin hung up somewhere on my car or a bearing, everything is free and smooth. it is a gear diff problem.

any ideas?

Yo Austin, I sanded the backs of the gears till they will flat, filled her up, and the diff was still tight. After a few laps, it was perfect. Sounds like something is either bend or binding.
