If I like how it comes out sure. Do you think there is any reason to cover both the sides of the ball dif or just the side without the the belt guide? The short side of the dif has a ridge to help junk from getting to the balls, why didn't serpent engineer the left side the same as the right?!?

It would be better if you can think of a way to cover both side. But you also gotta think of the drag that piece going to have, if any.

I dont believe that they will have too much drag... the left side of the ball dif is what will accumulate the most gunk as the right side is well protected by the molded ridge and also since it is in close proximinity to the bulkhead/bearing. My main focus is going to be covering the left side using the three holes like serpents parts make. We'll see how it works out. I'll keep you posted.

Get it from the belting shop as Serpent does not produce this. You can specify the width you want. Mine is 6 mm. Then specify you want a timing belt which is 204 mm in length with 68 tooth (i.e. 3 mm pitch).

Any shop that sells belts for machinary stuff. Pitch is the distance from one tooth to the other. So 68 tooth x 3 mm = 204 mm in total length.

Yes. The total thickness of the thrust bearing assembly. The plates are part of the thrust bearing.

9mm is the overall width of the bearing with the sides. The balls are normally around 7mm to allow for 2 x .5mm shields and a .5mm lip on the outer bearing case beyond the shields to hold them.

On the 705 laying down the shocks like on the 950 is suposed to give more steering by softening the suspension action right?

Initial steering response will be "slower" than when the front shocks are stood up vertical. Don't get me wrong... It's not like there's a delay or lag time in steering... Just that when the shocks are stood vertical, the responds are somewhat magnified. Laying the shocks horizontal smoothens out initial steering input that makes it very stable during high speed tracks. It makes the shocks softer and more progressive. During mid corner, you get more side bite. So going into high speed sweepers, shocks that are more horizontally layed down will be better for the car.

I find that when the front shocks are stood up, the car needs to be setup so that the rear of the car can respond and react as fast as the front steering input. When you can get it correct, a more vertical shock position will be good for small tight tracks as the car will be sensitive to steering input.
