Next Mod, now complete.

A long time thinking about mod. I finally gave in and purchased it, just got it installed and got my car back today. I'm talking about a Quaife ATB Differential. I order it from FocusSport, had to order new bearings from a aftermarket company for the tranny. The Getrag is a non service item, therefor you cannot get internal parts for it. No problem, with a little help from Jeff (FocalTech) I was able to find a company that sold the exact bearings I needed.

I just got my car back this afternoon to be exact, I could not wait to test my baby out. All I can say is WOW! I was expecting a little torque steer, and to my surprise I got none. I rev my baby up and dumped the clutch and got a launch even I was surprised at. Lets just say I cannot wait till the tracks open up.





This is the stock open Diff.




Here is a pic of the Quaife ATB Differential, if you would like to compare.

I can feel a huge difference, the car is def more in tune with the road. I just got it back today, so I'm still getting a feel for it. I will def be trying it out the next few days, since its going to be sunny and warm.

I dont know much about the aftermarket clutch line. But I will say that I love my SPEC stage 3 clutch. Not only is it a great clutch, but the customer service is wonderful. My clutch has a great feel, quick grab and rides out smooth once broke in fully.
