What do you set your backlash at on a 9" differential? I have always read .008-.012 for a street gear. Just courious if a circle track gear should be different? I usually go .006-.008 what do ya think????

I like 10 to 12 thou.Too tight too much heat too loose gears beat each other up.

Thanks for the reply. Guess I figure as hard as we are on and off the gas, a little tighter would help with keep the gears from beating each other to death...
