I've got a small problem with the prospec. How much do I need to sand down that teflon brake pad to keep from binding when everything is tightened down?
I don't have any problems when the rear bulkhead is off the chassis, but have problems when it is attached and tightened down. I also had some problems with the right rear bulkhead holes alignment with the chassis holes.

The teflon pads do not need to be sanded.

About the alignment of holes, you can't fully tighten the cross member & other connecting parts first, then try to align the entire set onto the chassis.

You have to tighten it lightly, then once you get it aligned on the chassis, tighten it completely.

any ideas on where the binding of the system is? I believe it is the at the pad due to the brake disk that is included with the prospec.

I would suggest stay away from lightest diff oil(those silicon one) since the diff is working much more harder then regular diff because you will be running light weight stuff in there!)
is it ok, if I use 10,000 diff oil

many thanks friend

Murnan: Try sheldons hobbies ( 408 ) 943-0220. I think they might have them still. Talk to someone in the car department. Pat or Brandon can help you out and see if they have it in stock before ordering. Hope this helps.
