Glad you found some o-rings that fit. Also with the o-rings on you should be able to take out the set screws that also hold the pins. Thats what they advertise on the Avid site anyway.

Did you get my E-mail? I sent 2 cause I messed up attaching the setup on the first one.

Some people change their diff oil every race. I change mine about once a month (2 race weekends). If your changing weights of fluid you probably want to get it clean, leave it upside down for a couple hours to drain it all out then you can clean it with carb cleaner (that's what I use, don't know if it's good to or not). Clutch setup is something you need to tune to your engine and driving style. I run Kingheadz hard alum. shoes with 1.0 springs. This feels neutral to me. Good punch without being too snappy. Hope that helps. Let me know if you got that email.

klink- i try and never spray out the diff cases, the cleaners will dry or swell the orings, unless taking completely apart. Just wipe them out real good or let them drain out as previously noted. Every 2 racedays on the center diff and rear diff is about par for the course, just re-oiling, not complete rebuild. The front diff can go longer it takes the least abuse. ALL of the old fluid doesn't have to come out, it's almost impossible, just clean it off the gears and wipe out the case.

as for clutch on the reedy engine, I like to run 2 1.0 springs and 1 1.1 spring. I tried running all 1.1 for max punch but it actually seemed all the heavy springs made it slip just a bit on the bell. the combo springs provided more consistent acceleration. that's using the 89146 clutch shoes.

Listen to this guy he's taught me a lot and is a very fast driver... I think I'll quit using cleaner after seeing that....
