    so i finally got my gears in. i've had the parts for about 6 months prior and never had the time to get them in until now. Brian at Duffee Motorsports put them in and did an excellent job. no gear whine and no vibrations at any speed. i'm very pleased. i supplied the parts and he charged $350 for the labor on the install, a tracloc rebuild and all new bearing replacement. i reccomend him for any of you guys in phoenix/scottsdale. :nice:

    Umm, straight pipes, 1.7 RR's and a CAI. :shrug:
    I did a little weight reduction too though, took all the spare tiree crap out, passenger seat removed, and I have a rear seat delete.

    nice.... hey guys, quick question. do i need to change the gear oil after a certain amount of time? brian, who did my gears, said just go through a heat cycle for the new bearings, but didn't say anything about changing the oil. everywhere i've been reading, people say to change the fluid after break in. is it necessary?

    I changed mine out to synthetic after I put about 500 miles on them. The old stuff still looked fine though.

    me too....granted i'm torn on them or 4.10....probably go 3.73 though since it is more of a fun car than a race car, and as everybody does I have plans but don't know what they are yet. lol

    cool. i didn't relaly think it was necessary, just making sure...

    on another note, i really need some drag radials haha. traction on 315 sumitomos is nonexistent. i can't even imagine 4.10's on street tires.
