Hi

I have been running the Spec R Diff in my T3 now for 2 meetings. One meeting indoor with 10.5 and the other outdoor at Cotswolds UK in modified (Lipo 4.5 SP Gt2.0 ESC)

The Car was crazy fast outdoor with a lot of power and the diff coped fine all day with no leaks and it was very consistent.

Laptime wise the car was very fast and competitve and I will be using the diff at round 2 of the BRCA Nationals at Cotswolds this weekend

What material are the outdrives in stock form?
And do they allow for blades?
I'm running a T2 008.
Any word on how the outdrives hold up?

Thanks!!

I think they are some sort of light alloy. They still use blades so there will be little to no wear on them as long as you don't let the blades wear down too far.

They are actually steel, a bit heavy however there is no slip in a gear diff so acceleration is improved if the grip is available.

Default mi4

Does anyone know if there is plans for a MI4 version.. Or can you frankenstien in another version. I am just a club racer and think this will just make it easier to run. The gear diff was the reason I bought a s400 until serp killed the program.

How much negative camber are you running? I reckon you'd struggle with anything more than -0.5...

Default gear diff

All I can say..Brilliant,,smooth, consistant and no maintenance..
You can get them from here..as well as 50mm dog bones..
I got the Atomic 50mm set..Run 10.5 and no worries..
