    Chassis, chassis brace (stock, broken, boo), adjustable turnbuckles, hex set (broke a pin grrrr), 1 driveshaft, rear shock tower.

    One of my buddies was gonna get me a rollcage for my birthday, might get a t-bone chassis brace instead.

    Chassis on back order so yippie. Oh and a bulkhead.

    haha.. yea.. i actually found it 30 minutes after i found it...
    hey i got another diff problem.. i am having the same problem as last time.. i got the shims in and when i spin it some places are alot tighter than the other.. i am almost sure that it is because i dont have the 3 screws that hold the diff together.. but i have tried and tried but i dont know how i could get all three of the evenly tight.. do you know any little tricks

    That's what I said about slight binding. A lil tight is ok,I have found you will have too much play if you take all the binding out.the ring and pinion is not as precise as it could be

    Pull the plate back off,set the plate back on straight ,start the bolts and evenly tightened them. When they are almost all the way down give.them.only a 1/4 turn each at a time until they are snug

    It seems to me that more heavy wheels reduce flipping over behaviour.

    Depends on which Road Rage you have. Road Rage II will, the older ones I think not.
