No linkage for brake

and everything involved w/ braking system was removed!


[COLOR=red]DEFINITELY NO BINDING!!!
phew! nice ride fish! you got my pant wet
you make me feel guilty now as i still use brake often
perhaps removing the brakes could train me a faster driver

I didn't use any diff fluid. Instead, I use grease, lightly, just to cover up all those bevels. Remember, you wanna take full advantage of diff. If insist, you may choose to use 5,000 or 10,000. Also, remember to sand the housing, so when it engages, it grips hard.

Furthermore, I have no idea of what those 2 holes are for. Maybe someone will soon help us out.

The metal shim you would, at last, insert on the right outdrive, so that the bearing pushes against it and hold the bearing in place. That was it.

food for thought: I also notice that those 3Racing W-shape aluminum bodypost will not fit with the negative diff. One may have to use the stock--which still rubs w/ neg diff; or better yet, opt for the 2nd version Kawahara aluminum rear bulkhead stiffener w/ carbon graphite shock tower. It is recommended per the back of neg diff instruction.

Heard that Manticore does not use one.

fish loves it, and has been addicted to it since its first introduction to MTX-2.

For fish opinion, it's the best of both worlds! One gets the benefit of diff, and the speed that solid axle has to offer.

Either that or you'll end up wrecking your car. We need you hear. We don't want you to spend time to change parts nor anything else.

The holes on the diff clutch housing is for cleaning the clutch shoes. use contact cleaner to spray thru the little holes to clean the shoes and housing inside.

I know it's there for some reasons, since one can't adjust how one soon/late one want to have the solid axle engage.

Thank you Manticore.
