Here's the parts you need for a front diff:

C0228 Diff Gears
T0202 Diff Outdrives
C0227 Shim assortment
T0207 Diff Gasket
T0802 Roller Pin Set assortment
T0224 S5 O-Ring 10pcs.

My parking lot setup for rubbers on a blown tight track.

Kit setup plus the following changes:

FRONT
Diff w/10,000 oil
Grey front springs
0.5 deg. camber

REAR
Long rear camber link(inside hole)
2 Associated aluminum washers under rear camber link ball
5,000 rear diff oil
"C" roll center blocks
Red Associated TC3 springs
0.5 deg camber

Sorex 40R tires. Works great on 100-140 degree(F) track temps.

Updated pic with my transponder mount & PT holder in place. I didn't like moving the switch back there, but there wasn't many choices.

I have no experience with either engine but from what I have seen and heard, the Rody is the one to get.

JP .12's don't impress me. .21's.........WOW!

but considering the amount of work done on the engines, JP has certainly done more on their engines.

hurhur: here is my take on both engines:
There are alot more work done on the Rody 5port than the JP. I have opened up both engines. if you go to the RB site, they have big pictures of the internals. I had first hand experience with the Rody, and i have seen the JP S5 runs, the Rody should be in your car!!!

What did Rody did on their crankshaft? I can only see the air intake hole is bigger. But the JP has added silicon as a ramp to faster channel the fuel.
