Do any of you guys have any recommendation on how to keep dirt out of the bulkheads everytime i service my diffs it's packed with dirt or is it something to not really worry about doesn't seem like the ring and pinion bind with all that dirtiness? Also my diffs have sealed bearings and has external shims to keep it tight.

Hi, maybe your chassis is bent a little. This caused the same problem with my Typhon.

As an alternate idea - I picked this stuff up at Lowes for 2 bucks and I cut it and drilled out some holes to fit.

The easiest way I found to make the holes was marking them with some greasy screws and then drilling through the gasket backed by a 2x4. Just another idea.

What is that stuff? The Lowe's link isn't working for me. Curious!

I asked because we have some of some red rubber stuff like that at work that we use for different surface apps. Gun cleaning tabletop is one. It's neat.
