Default Binding lower arms?

Hi guys,
I've just completed building the T2 and this is the best kit i've put together. I've built probably 15 or so kits in my years in the hobby and must say that in the T2 all parts were a perfect fit. Everything went together real nice. The manual and the information included is first class. This guys at X-Ray pay attention to detail.

I thought I'd share one trick to help with anybody who has problems with their lower arms not moving freely. As we all know we should not have any stiction with the arms and it should pivot completely stiction free from the hingepin. When lifted up it should drop back down from it's own weight or you are guaranteed to have trouble on the track.
The reason is that there is a chance that when you lock the lower hinge pin blocks(roll center blocks), you might twist it that it binds the lower arm.

Solution: Apply pressure to the arms toward the block while locking in the blocks to the alu bulkhead. Do the same with all the blocks.
You will find that now it's butter smooth.

Cheers!

Why should it cost $55? According to the description you still need to use all the other parts out of the multidiff. This is only a recplacement to the one way bearing unit. I think at most this will cost is $10.

I have a friend who purchased some delrin material in bulk or however you say it, and he told me that he couldn't believe how much that stuff costs compared to say aluminum. Its a material that easy to work with but expensive to buy. I would say that one part could cost as much as 25.00.

Default Shocks

I currently have the adjustable pistons in my shocks. How do you check shock lengths? Sometimes you extend the shock and it goes all the way so you can change the piston and sometimes it doesn't. So there are really 2 lengths. Wouldn't this be the case while driving? Are the adjustable pistons good or should I not use them?

You mean shock rebound? It should not be more then 50% rebound typically. If it's going all the way out where you can adjust the piston hole then you have way too much oil in the shock.

I went and ran my T2 for the first time today.
The more motor I put in the car the more I was impressed.

When you check the length make shure that all 4 shocks are either in the adjusting detent slot or out of it when you measure.
Once you set the droop the shock can only extend so far and will not get into the detent slot, so you won't have a problem with that.
The adjustable pistons work great, so easy to make adjustment while at the track without having to rebuild shocks to change pistons.

About the multi-diff settings

The front multi-diff can be set to three mode:
1. standard one-way
2. solid one-way
3. full-time solid axle

But I don't konow the detail info of solid one-way. What‘s it? What's the difference with full-time solid axle? What's advantage of it? Thanks.
