Default Hpi baja ss diff side slop?

Its been a few weeks since i took my km baja apart to inspect the lack of drive from the gearbox,
turned out to be a blown gears inside the km plastic diff,

finally got around to buying a new hpi ss alloy diff for my baja, assembled the diff and finished building the gearbox

thats when i noticed the side to side play from the diff in the gearbox housing,

there`s about 3mm slop, maybe this is normal?,

having been weeks since i took the baja apart i cannot remember if the original diff had this play in it,

Nope, there shouldn't be any play. Maybe you assembled it incorrectly. All HPI parts in the diff?

Yea all hpi parts were used even the gearcase is hpi,

the side slop left the diff as soon as i fitted the gearbox onto the chassis dont know how but its fine now,

cant get to run the baja this weekend though as the darksoul axle boots i had on are all splits so i cut them off and am waiting for

a set of hostile boots to be shipped to me before i get to run again, thanks for the help clubin.
