Are there any build tips people would advise i do when i build my BD?

Other than the following one:

Prep chassis,
Soak the belts,
Clean the bearings.

I ended up not using any of the included spacers for shimming the diff and oneway and there is barely any play side to side at all. Also, there are two small bearings included that no one has seemed to find a home for Other than that the kit goes together like a dream, and it's really easy to work on with the easy access center shaft and diffs

they look like they're bearings for the inside of a diff. I already threw them in with the rest of my extra bearings and I don't remember what size they were.

Got the car on the track yesterday, and with just a couple changes from the kit setup, it had a ton of steering and cornerspeed. I kept making changes throughout the day and the car got gradually worse, so for next week I'll go back to what I know worked and was really easy to drive.

For the SD guys, do you have any tricks to keeping the wear down on the outdrives? I pitted mine really bad within 2 runs, so just wondering if there are any tricks out there.

Those extra bearings were a mistake in the packaging process.

Don't you guys still run 4 minutes in Mod at So Cal.

We had 2 BDs running mod at Speedworld, one box stock the other with a lowered roll center with 1 deg of kick up and anti-squat. Changed the box stock by adding 1 deg of kick up and went 500 oil in the front, it won the main and beat TQ. This car is awsome.
