In regards to the broken outdrives, I beleave I was the first one on this forum to report this problem, as the c-hubs would break, the drive shaft would pop out and mangle the outdrive. I took the problem to Xray, and they told me they did not sell the outdrives seperate, so i would have to buy the entire diff (F*cking stupid), so i went ahead and bought, the spring steel diff, for a couple extra bucks. That was months ago, and I'm surprised they havin't fixed this issue yet
I know the pain.. the first day I took my new T2 out, I broke the chub and mangled the outdrive.. luckily, I was able to get a replacment for $20 off ebay!

You did end up having to replace it Scott? I thought you were able to clean it up enough to still be functional.

I took the easy route... Aluminum C-hubs. Now I just replace the suspension holder screws about every other run...

Maybe some tips (I had a worn diff too):

1) 305002 Ball Diff. with Labyrinth Covers™ - (Factory Kit)

This is the diff which is delevired with the T2.
No "output shafts" available.

2) 305000 Ball Differential With Labyrinth Dust Covers.

Standard EVO2 (en older) diff with steel balls.
These outdrives are still available (at least in Holland):3) 305001 Ball Differential - Spring Steel - Set.

This is the so called pro-diff and will be available in the near future (with carbide balls).

Hope this helps a little.

The first picture is showing the "FK05" outdrive the T2 outdrives are a little bit different but compatible with the previous one - same part number though. I think they changed the design to reinforce it a little.
I killed one outdrive myself too but it was my own stupid mistake (did not stop after a bad crash)

That's how I killed mine.. It may be usable in a pinch, but the drive is a little rough.. taught me that if I heard some weird sounds after a crash... STOP!

May be answered before, but here it goes.

When adding the shims to adjust inboard toe, do you leave the stock ones on and add to that? I know you can do whatever, but this is in reference to the setup sheets. If you mark "other" and have for example 4 typed in that box. is it 4mm total? or 4 + the existing 3mm already there?

I would think it it is actually 7mm then longer screws are in order, but just wanted to be sure.

That spring steel diff has been around for a while, not sure if its available still... It was heavier than the reg. diff. That link to the xray site shows the date 2002.

I know all that. But the diff has been out of production. Xray has said a few weeks ago on their own web that they start production again.

Pretty sure it is in addition to the ones already there. If you put 4 in the box you actually have 7mm. Put whatever you add to the standard 3mm. Or I guess you could indicate too if went less than the 3. Have read about some doing that to narrow the car up too.


This is just my interpretation though so take it for whats it worth.

You leave the stock shims in place. You then add to these shims to increase the inboard toe. The chart on that section of the set up sheet calculates the shims thickness from mm to degrees.

So for example: if you have the stock shim which is 1.5mm (0 degrees in board toe) and you add another 1.5mm shim you will end up with 2 degrees in board toe.

And you will not need a 7mm longer screw

Hope this helps.

Default IF the stock diff came with carbide diff balls at that price...

I just don't see how you would save money when you need to replace the additional parts later!!

Regards,
it would be a deal, but they don't. It's bs that we have to duy the whole diff to get one outdrive. I hope they bring back the spring steel one as well as selling outdrive halfs.
