Why would you want to do that? You could but your rear trackwidth suffers and rear traction goes down dramatically.

Well, had another look at the car last night. I didn't realize that the pulleys for the front one way and rear diff have play in them. So all I did with both was push them all the way over to one side and that got rid of the wobble. How hard should it be to spin the diff. I mean grab one axle and spin it and hold the other to make it slip? Mine seems quite stiff and I barely have the collar tightened. I figure it will lossen up after I run it once? Thanks, guys, I'll kepp ya posted on how its coming.

If you mean like when the diff is situated within the car, and you grab both rear wheels and turn them in opposite directions, then there should only be slight resistance.
If you mean out of the car when you are holding both axles firm (i.e. left and right) then the diff will only move with a large amount of force. This is the pre-requisite for a well built diff!! Check step 2.4 in the manual - here the diff-tension screw is set, it determines the initial amount of diff "slip".

Cheers, Mark.

Yes, I'm grabbing by the axles, not the wheels. And it takes a bit of force. So this is OK then? Thanks.

Insert two allen-keys into the slots of the diff axles and then attempt to turn the diff pulley whilst holding the allen-keys firm (i.e. making sure the axels don't rotate). It should be very difficult to turn the diff pulley.

If that is the case, then your diff setup is fine

Cheers, Mark.

I only use on the grub screws on the aluminum pulley adapter. I only use on the grub screws on the aluminum pulley adapter.

I don't use loctite on my Centax pinions and on my engine screws as well as the wheel nuts. I just tighten them up very tightly.
Thanks, I ran my 710 for the first time today, and all I can say is WOW!!! I could not believe how easy it was to drive with stock settings. I was able to handle our track so much better and faster...I even impressed myself!

I didn't use Locktite on the pinions, no problem whatsoever.
