Had another look at the Tech Racing diff outdrivers today....decided they look too much like GPM- design is far too complicated. Ended up buying the Five Star diff outdrivers. These are really nice.....uses the TA04 diff plates which are keyed so no more slipping diff. Also saved myself 5g on the diff at the same time!!!!
In this case, i will stick with the stock diff. 5g is not significant as when I have saved a lot with the 3 racing shaft set.

Well Manticore- you will laugh at this. My Coupe broke down today at Tung Chung!! I think one of the rubber turbo boost hoses split!! Eased the throttle at 3500 rpm. I big pssssssh........ like a loud Dump valve (but my car does not normally make this sound!!). No power...pull over car dies...does not idle!!

Called the place I bought it from...gave him a bit of grief...had to be towed back...ended up taking the MTR back home. Will get the report tomorrow!!! Good thing the rain had not started then!!!

Forrest Gum loves chocolate. You should still remember what he said at the beginning of the movie. What's next?

By the way, the tow should cost you more then 500!!
