We're working on a first class or flat rate package that would cost considerably less. If you're interested, email what you're looking for to customersupport <at> speedtechrc [dot] com and we'll give you a custom quote

What is the benefit of a gear diff? It seems with most cars you ditch the gear diff for a ball diff. FF-03 swap the ball diff for gear diff?

Thanks in advance

Suppose the geardiff can be built similar to a tight ball diff but will be more consistent without the need to tighten it up all the time!

I'm just wondering if the spec-r doesn't fit the stock gear case and if so why not....

It doesn't fit the stock gear case ... most likely a bit wider internally so needs more room

Whats a good starting oil weight for a gear diff in FF03 on carpet?

I got my car used, the previous owner built the stock ball diff with thick silicone grease to make it feel tighter. But after a couple of runs the diff started getting smoother when the grease thinned out and it feels less punchy than before. Should this have anything to do with the diff being smoother?

Thanks
