Got all my K-parts from Singapore today the rear hubs looks to be a real good deal. Maybe no more compressing the ball ends in . The turnbuckles are much bigger thank stock or Lunsford buckles and seem to have a deeper thread to grab the ball ends.

Get the BIG DAWG bones not sure where you can find them but they are much better than stock ones.

I would first try a solid front diff as you will still have the normal braking. Alot of people will tell you that the diff gears won't put up with the forces but i have been running a locked diff for about 3 race meets now and the diff gears (white ones) are fine. My lap times are significantly faster with the solid diff then they were with the one way. With the locked diff you can still brake late and go up the inside of someone with a one way but i still have the pull out of the corners as a one way. My track that i race at is quite tight so braking is still important. Just remeber that with either a 1 way or locked diff you will need to change your setup.

i might be wrong, but isn't the solid diff, the stock diff gear. The one-way is the "hop-up" gear.
