Final drive gets better with age???

Just got this back from Blackstone Labs.' Pretty interesting as all numbers improved this time.

Fwiw, the rear wheel seems to turn far easier which, I think, seems to point to final failure coming up, or the pads are full retracted. No wiggle detected though. Dunno.

Mine have never got old enough to get better with age, 3rd drive including the original fitted at 25,000klms.

I just put 6,000klms on number 3 in one hit without a hitch so I must be up for a new one soon.
