Mainly where the main shaft enters the rear gearbox (bearing area) , it pushes apart under load and has caused two other racers to strip their rear diffs, one of them an out the box FW05S with GS15R and single speed.
NiMo, time to look at a snake?

Good idea Zig!! Just wondering how hard would be the install of the nut?? I'm gonna take a look on my car later...probably it is not that hard than I thought....
Push the screw up from the bottom before putting the diff case on the chassis and then tighten the nut from te top!

They look like Mugen as I have the same ones. I hadnt fitted the top link from the RR but did do last night. It makes a real difference to the rear suspension stiffness.

The links can only move up and down unlike the kit ones and resist the rear hubs twisting.
