Now THAT is interesting. How did you deduce that? Its a handy tip if its true though so its good to know for sure.

It's not the collar that is giving you the problem. It's the setting inside the diff that is making the diff slip and hence the diff is acting like a oneway when you brake.
Yup, makes sense.

D, Palmaris, I also saw a mod (on the G4 thread I think) where they used another car's steering system completely. Can't remember which car they took it from though ...

SupermaxxRich, place two of your allen key shafts across the outdrives and then while holding them solid (maybe grip both in a vice) and then try and turn the pulley of the assembled diff by hand. If it rotates without too much force then its slipping.

If the diff is in the car, grab both rear (for rear diff) wheels and keep them stationary and then try turning the pulley on the diff. Of course with extreme force you'll move it but it should not move with a half decent force.

I remember setting the diffs with only EXCESS force will slip it... Did not work. I needed to tighten it down real hard to not make it slip at all. Then when you accelerate, your car will not sweep sideways.

Strange. Why would it be wrong tire choice? Use what you've been using all the while lah...
Ah, don't loose sleep about it. Sorry that I could not be your wingman this time. Race on June 20th?
I was shocked to see my engine flameout too...a lot of the drivers were caught out by the 50mm front/refuel hole i guess, as i wasn't the only one who flamed out. Lotsa top drivers had the same problem...soulfree was one of em too. Before the start of the heat my engine was idling at a very high rpm...Whoaa!!...that was after 2 warm up laps. As for the tire choice, i should've gone for 35 shore instead of 37...traction was really low and my car was understeering big time...all the AE boys had 35 and boy, their car was PLANTED!!!

Anyways, lesson well learned. For the coming 20th race, it's gonna be the full track...body not confirmed but chances are it's gonna be touring.
