Insteading of purchasing light weight diffs, why not just ran two bevels? The weight difference is almost identical, and this is the setup that Green/Salven tested at Houston.

I have run it hard for two club days, and it has held up great. The diffs feel much smoother, however, you have to practically double the oil weight (ie, 50000wt in normal 4 bevel diff = 100,000k in 2 bevel diff to get the same feeling) due to the changed capacity...

I ran one rear diff that way at the Nova Challenge with 100k oil felt smooth and held up so far. Even at my local track. It's worth a try.

When I ran the mugen sedan. I asked Mike S about running just two diff gears. He said he tried it; but it was not as consitant as the 4 diff setup. I went back to the 4 diff setup because it was too hard trying to obtain the real thick diff fluids. Above 150K most brands make really big jumps

the reason different diff's from other car's need different oil thickness
is the volume of the case the profile of the bevel gears, the mesh tolerance and
the size of the gears if you are replacing the gears with ones made from a different material as long as everything else remains the same your choice of oil would be the same

Some kind of evaluation about how it turned out would be interesting to read.

Salven told me the DLS worked but with the changing conditions of the track with the rain and no re-spray of the track made it difficult to really give the results. But very promising. Will have have to see under a more consistant track weekend

And for the most dribers it is new and so it takes time to understand and adapt the different driving style.

A short while back DJ Apolaro posted about the new bumpers for the 733 being very flexible. My question is will this be a completely new part or will this be the replacement of the existing bumper. If it is a replacement when will this running change occur?

It's more like playing the lottery. When the old ones are gone, your dealer will get the new ones. Same part number. Hate it.

I was told that the 720 bumpers don't fit. Otherwise they wouldn't have come out with a new (current) bumper for the 733.
