And, as always, Dackel comes through with tons of helpful info.
I'm under the impression that the +FM is used if there is noise coming from the diff, and that once you put FM in there you can't go back to non-FM. My bias would be to just go with non-FM unless I hear bothersome noise. I'd be curious to hear what people think?
