i know i hear a number, of times that you have to check the shimming on the diffs on the 2.0 t and reshimming them so they dont strip, thats just one more reason why i want to go to a diffrent brand of truggy.

next season or maybe sooner.

did you see the video of that big triple at hobby hut i told you about ?
the diff shim on D8 will last atleast 5-6 gallons before you even think about adding another shim. all you do is run 2 shims on the ring gear side. the D8 bearings are pretty much junk tho, i replaced them all at one gallon because they were failing. the plastic on HB is good and the diff cases are thick.
