Yep lol can't wait bro!

Ok, i have found the right procedure for the ST-R:

I have used this method and it worked! I also went to SGrid and found a whole wack of info on this issue. I would like to thank Gump for finding out the info it really helped. Now i have my diffs shimmed to perfection.

If you can get the Chromoly diff gears. The difference between the two is the chromoly gears are stronger, the teeth are thicker, and the pinion teeth are longer. The St-r ones are opposite. That's why with the original st-r diffs shimming is crucial.

Here's what i did (for anyone that has an st-r with the st-r diffs)

For the pinion i put one shim on. Reason being becuase the gives more of a contact to the diff gear. I found two shims on the pinion to be too tight and kind of contacting the diff case so i stuck with one.

For the diff it's self, i put one thick and 2 thin shims on the ring gear side and 3 thin shims on the other side. It's soo smooth. Also, some guy told me to use k-diff lube OR mobil 1 grease that way the grease sticks on the gears.

Make sure one the pinion and shaft there is no play and the diff no back lash. After a race check the backlash and there is back lash add shims until there isn't any.

Also, check this:

Bulkhead, when you put the bearing in or out there should be some resistance but, if there isn't any resistance replace the bulkhead. Supposedly this has a big effect on the diff gears becuase, of flex.

Bearings, this can cause the problems also, make sure they do feel gritty and if they do replace them. Gritty bearings will cause binding and cause diff gears to fail.

Hope this info helps. Thanks to SGrid users for giving me this info! Tekno.
