I know they make CNC aluminum up rights...I am talking about the plastic part that the diff itself goes in. I haven't seen one of those made out of metal.

You want to make sure the pinion gear goes deep enough into the housing to make a good mesh with the ring gear..i usually only have to add 1 shim to the carrier( the part that the ring gear is bolted to) and 3 or 4 shims between the pinion gear and the bearing that the pinion goes through.. You want a JUST enough play that the gears don't bind.. It's a trial and error deal.. Lots of cussing involved because you have to assemble the ENTIRE diff and case over and over again (maybe 3 times LOL, but it seems like 1000.. I get impatient..). But I've only had to go through it twice for the 2 diffs in the truck.. i think the stock units have soft gears and the cnc'd gears are harder and less prone to wear. I've got umpteen gallons on mine and only had to do the initial set up. Now if I could only find some new o-rings to keep the @#$% things from leaking..

Hey Goose,
Believe it or not, I get all my parts from Hobbytown USA where I live. They have to order some parts but they said all you need are part numbers and they can get them

there's also nitrohouse.com and as far as racing components for you dominator, it's already basically a buggy with big tires and a truck body so don't mess with your suspension setup(people may try to wow you with a suspension conversion kit, don't go for it), just tune the crap out of it(you can learn anything about tuning your entire truck by just asking on these forums). for racing get a center diff. and as for as diff oils it's all in how you race, you need to tune to your liking. just make sure to use good namebrand(ofna) diff fluid.
