Does someone knows if there would be a problem putting in am S811 center diff on the GT?

We run in a small track, no 2nd gear needed.

Be careful Andy. My car will make His debut at SWCS #2. I'm getting everything in line.

Look inside the tank you'll see the filter I am talking about I think its called a clunk filter.
+1, if its not needed dont use it or it will fail

You will need a new clutch bell and I would use the center diff from the buggy. I just went and checked my buggy and the center drives are longer as well. 102 and 105. I would assume if you are using the buggy stuff you would need those as well.

If you can wait till tomorrow I can test the diff out and tell you how it fits. I have to head into work now.

Sounds good, I'll dig into this in the am. I work all night long

Are you wanting to run the center diff locked or with fluid? May be fun to try it with a functional center diff but that only adds to setup. We run very short tracks in Utah as well they make you drive no doubt.

What kind of motors are you running? I know a few short track monsters I use fro racing around here.

Okay so I have the one speed in my car. Looks like you are going to need...
102mm for the center front driveshaft.
Differential cover for the buggy
The correct clutch bell. Not really sure what tooth depends on what you decide.

Looks like you may have to do a little shimming to get the single speed to fit nice and tight between the 2speed mounts as the differential is a little shorter than the 2speed by maybe 2-3mm.

Seems like it will work with the parts above but that is just my opinion. I'll post you a pic when I get back home.

Thanks, i'll wait for the pic.

Sorry this took me so long... So much stuff going on for me right now lol.

So here is why I mentioned getting the longer front drive shaft.

Front = Right

The front driveshaft pins are too close to the end of the cup in my opinion. I would bump it up to the 102 and be safe. Other than that the parts I listed above should do the trick.

Dont worry and thanks for taking the time to do it.

Do you know the 102mm drive shaft part number?

An 'internet' question initially only hit on a '112mm' but a European site came up with (after translation)........102mm..........'center front V2 Serpent 811 2.0'..........(600509).

Do the werks lite wgt. clutch work well in the cobra, or is the stock clutch just as good. It worked flawless in my K igt2 for years.
