Alright, I got my kit... now I've got that superb feeling that is only generated by a fresh build sprawled out in front of you on a kit that you have been anticipating and waiting for!!

I've been taking pics ill post tonight .so far so good, gear diff is super nice and smooth ..shocks are some of the best I've seen ..I'm not done yet I only get to work on it I bit after work and I don't rush things

And the xray spurs would not be my 1st choice at least the ones I saw have a offset to them might work ..but my RW spur 84t 64p fits perfect I had to remove 4 .75mm spacers that hold the spur so when I put the idler gears on it didn't bind ..

Idler might be the wrong name ..its the 19t option

O and I went with the light weight drive cups up front on spool they give you both steel and plastic so I figured why not ..I'm not running mod

Edit: 84t did not reach my 41 pinion so ill need to go bigger

they may be expensive, but at least you get a full set of 4 for that price.

the 6-hole pistons, if I recall correctly, are sold in 2's...so for $14ish US, you'll need two sets

I seriously would if I didn't have one pre-paid. I was told at first that the estimated date of arrival would be 9/11/12. I was trying to get a car to run at the Southern Nats. As of right now it sounds like the 2012 isn't anywhere near being put on the shelf.
