I see you bought a the tool for your tire!
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
Jones that's great you will be busy!
yea but its only tight on one side.. its got alot more play in one spot than the other side does
What are you going to lube the ring with?
lithium grease or 50k diff lube
Next time you place an order check out Sullivans dry ice
Yippie. Ironically the GPS made it out unscathed. Time for a radar gun.
its so tight in one spot it will almost not spinn.. and in the other spots its got to much play
Check to make sure when you assembled the diff the plates are flush and bolts tightened evenly
How can you tell its too much?
i can tell cause it wont spin at all..
and how can i be sure the diff bolts are tightned really even.. cause i see thats the problem, but i cant get them all excatly the same
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
ha.. thats crazy.. i was doing just that as i was waiting on you to post.. i think i got it now.. its pretty snug all the way around one small little spot is a bit looser.. but much much better.. i cant believe it took 5 shims though
Wow! Aluminum bulk or stock?
correction 3 shims....
thought you were going back
i dont have a stock steering knuckle and the alum one screws in so it wont work with the stock one
You didn't throw the old one out did you! Don't tell.me you painted it black!
haha.. yea i threw the old one away it was broke in half.. i cant believe i threw the knuckle away to i guess i thought it come with the new bulkhead...
painted the alum black... haha not hardly.. haha
after 6 hours of rebuilding here is what i got...
looks great! don't know if i would run those axle extenders!be very hard on your bearings
won't roll very easy!
thanks for that info.. yea it should be really hard to flip
yea them toys wideners are really wide
have you ran it?
yea i just did a test run.. the mesh on the pinon and spur was to tight. i had to readjust it havent got back out side.. but i could not flip it on my test runs.. i like em
cool !not like you do jumps or anything like that
haha.. unfortunaly not.. i live down town in an apatment. so there is no jumps for me around here except off the curb haha
the beadlocks will help with flipping over

yea but they're real heavy huh
Maybe time to go bigger like hpi ss monster 2140 and speed hawgs.since your street only about 11" wide without wheel wideners
yea those are awsome.. would thoes work with most all 2.2 tires.. or do i have to make sure they're wider? like would they work with my road rage's?
i dont have the road rage 2.. i am not 100% sure excatly witch ones they are but i remember seeing the 2's and got the other ones.. the number on the side of them is 1102.
