All preferance. I got my front driver window cut cuz i still use a bottle and my pit guy likes coming at it from the side rather than the top. + others might be using a fuel gun which the roof hole works best for.

Thanks Rider. So I don't need to cut the front window. I usually cut the front driver side and back window for air flow. I'm down to try it this way.

I run these on my center unis...they are a little tight but once you stretch them on they work great.

Yep they look the go, I managed to fit the drive shaft uni boots over them for the time being.

Another problem i've come across is the slop in the diff housing, its like the drive cup diff bearings are .5mm to small of a diameter, anyone else notice this?

Found the issue, the outer diff casing does not have a snug fit for the outdrive diff bearings, sat the diff in the outer casing and theres about .4mm of slop around bearings?

Im not an engineer but if the bearings are not a snug fit wouldnt they spin in the casing? also the slop would not help diff ring and pinion mesh?

Anyone else notice this or have I got a bad batch of outer diff casings?

Any help appreciated, cheers.

There are 2 shims, one on each side, that go between the bearing and the plastic of the bulkhead.

I vote bad batch....

But I have noticed they loosen quickly.

I change the housings often....but they're generally nice and tight when new.
