WOW 100,000 IN THE REAR Why don't you just run a spool in the rearjk.
I use 20,000 and the car has no push and with a spool in the front the car rotates really well in the corners

With the xray diffs yes they are really small compared to others but don't forget xray is european so their oils are rated by cst where as others are rated by csi or something along those lines (it's like metric V's imperial) so really an xray 80k oil maybe similar to another brands 50k etc. I hope i haven't got all this mixed up

With the one way hopefully it is just a bad batch or something. How big is it compared to the RS 08 or other brands one ways? Cause if it's too small maybe they just can't take the heat and forces that they are subjected to. Just a thought

Grrr, I still haven't been able to take the oneway off the shaft. I tried rotating it the other direction while prying it but all it did was gouge the aluminum shaft badly.

If even a 3 jaw puller doesn't work I'll have to bring it over to either my LHS or my cousins's to cut it open. Hopefully it will, the last time I used it was to pull a shock off its mounting post on my 3000GT .

I would take a dremel with a small cutting wheel becareful though,try an cut the oneway in sections,then you should be able the pull it without damaging the oneway shaft, you may have to use some scotchbright to smooth the shaft.

Will try that tonight. The gear puller didn't work, mostly because the rod that's supposed to brace the puller against kept slipping off the 2 spd shaft. Even considering that, I can't believe how hard it's stuck on there...

What camber link position are you using? Try shimming up on the rear upright, under the ball conector, or using one of the lower inside positons. That raises your rear roll center and allows the car to roll less at that end. That should also give you a bit of steering, on and off power...

If you place the ball ends closer to the center line of your sway-bar it has a similar effect to using a thicker bar. Stiffening your rear roll bar will reduce on-power push. Using thicker diff silicon will, too, but 100k sounds a bit too much...


Of course you may already know all of this, and I am a bit intrusive.

I have not had time to put my car together and I am eager to do it (simply too much work and no play), so at least reading your input on how the things above help you (or do not) kind of relieves some of the pain for me...
Thanks man, i looked at everything an did what you said perfect.The car did what i wanted thanks for the information.
