I took my trust dremel with a sand pad and took some material off so that metal is flush with the pad meterial itself on the bottom side.. I didnt loose any breaking surface but gained alot of outdrive clearance.... Has anyone else came accross this?
yes, i have had a similar problem, did the same thing as you, just took off some material with the dremel, i noticed it before i even got the car outside.
and btw, i you put a front/rear diff output on the center diff the brakedisks wont fit at all so...

I'm trying to unscrew the ball ends on my rear shocks to get more droop but they're too tight, I bought some so called shock shaft pliers but they're pretty useless.

Has anybody got any tips.

Ignore me, the pliers work fine, I was using the wrong size slot.

One thing I've noticed though is that unscrewing by 3 turns as recommended a few pages back only gives me 121mm, to get 123mm I have to go to 6 turns.

I dont think I would dare go 6 turns out on the shock bottoms.. Seems like 3 turns out is about 1/3 of the way out already. I think I tasted that sour milk before........ I tried going to far past the safe zone with my 777 back in the day and ended up trashing a shock shaft since it was cutting a trench in the track...

yes thats right its a litle past 3 turns but you will be okay ive been running 123mm for a while and no probs if youve got a spare shock handy fully screwed in you can unscrew the other to 123mm and size them up you will see they still screw in deep enough
i think its only 4 maybe 5 not six are you measuring center top cap center bottom eyelet

I just had another look and don't know how I managed to miss it before but the bottom balls were pointing slightly upwards as I was looking at them.

The new TKI 2 buggy breaks cover...

At a glance, I see threaded shock bodies and a resculpted bodyshell around the engine.
