Your gears shouldn't stick out below the chassis, ride height shouldn't have anything to do with it. More than likely you had a failure in the 2-speed transmission bearings for the 2-speed clutch bell, or the 2-speed one way. If either of these go out the results are trashed spur gears. I have seen it happen a few times. Take your 2-speed assembly out and disassemble it (you'll need to anyway to replace the gears).

Are you in new york as well? I never check my engine temps. If you live in the city come race with us in STATEN ISLAND.

Hey guys. Just have a quick question. How many of you are running the RD logics pipe and what are your opinions of it? I've been looking at getting a new pipe and I'm stuck between the AE dual chambered or the RD logics dual chambered pipe. Every after market pipe my friends have tried on their NTC3 don't work well at all, except for the AE pipes. Just wondering about the RD logics and how it compares to the AE. Thanks for the input.

It's not out yet is it? The RD Logics pipe that is. If it is, I gotta run out and get one. Well, jwf-frani has tested the pipe on his car and liked it alot. He's pretty fast so I value his opinion.

Default Warpspeed Blueprinted Diff Cases

I was just over at the electric on-road forum on the Warpspeed thread and I saw that they have specially modified diff cases in which they massage the bearing holes for less bearing pinch and also add Helicoil's to all the screw holes to prevent stripping. These should help prevent the shock tower problem especially if they are used in conjunction with "The Fix".

Excuse me if this is old news.
