If you put an additional clip-on heatsink it may just insulate the heat even more. Try getting the Novak one which actually makes contact with the inside of the motor, or just finding the correct...

In the rear running a diff I had no problems, in the front if you run a one-way you may need the shorter 42mm dogbones or wider blocks.

If you do end up replacing both the hub and hub-carrier with aluminum parts, you might breaking suspension arms or bending hinge pins often. The arms are really brittle on the Lightweight suspension.

I believe thats exactly what they did, change the car to what the team drivers were doing. They would cut that rear upper brace to give the car equal flex on both sides. Also I think the new shocks...

Then your IDR is 2.1875. To get close to 10, 88/20x2.1875 = 9.625. And 88/19x2.1875 = 10.132, which is closer to 10. Although 87/19 gets you closest with 10.01.

I don't see why you can't just use both the inner and outer holes for a total of 16 diff balls. Whats the reason for having the balls riding on the outer edge of the diff plate? And why do you need...

It says the TRF shocks are a new design. What else could they do to a perfect shock?

Other than that the rear brace probably just doesn't have that cross section, the one that pro drivers usually...

The black screws are steel. They aren't titanium screws painted black. You can always get titanium screw sets for the MSXX if you aren't satisfied with the steel screws.
