Heavier weight oil in the diff will take away steering going into a corner (off power) and add steering coming out (on power).

Feel somewhat better, just no energy and sleep the whole time. But you're right about where you get the spots really horrible. My doc says it'll take another couple of weeks before I'm back to normal.
The good thing about this is that the nitro seaons starts in a couple of weeks here, so as soon as I'm well again, I can start driving Nitro again

Was all by myself next to the fast & furious trailer I had a couple of guys help me out with the pitting since Im fairly new to the area. Don't know to many just a handful from racing here. I moved to Apopka in october from NY.
Still getting adjusted to Quiteness & the noisiy crickets it took me a while to fall asleep since im so used to all the noise in NY.

I would suggest that cleaning them often due to fine grain dirt enters the clutch bell & wears the bearring down this has happened to me once & after applying some maintenace after every race so far it has not happened again

Tony, bring me your car next time I see you at Revelation. All these time (1.5 years with 2 RRRs) I've only broke one clutch bearing. Let me take a look at your clutch setup--maybe something else is wrong.
