Bill-
A big ring diff is far better than the stealth diff. If you use the right kind of spur gear you can build a diff using 12 balls which will be a lot smoother and last a lot longer than the 6 ball small diff. The only disadvantage to a big ring diff is a little more weight. Theoretically, the small diff should be faster, but I don't think it's enough to outweigh the hassle of rebuilding it every heat. Since you are running at Stockton, just ask Ruben, Ashby or me to show you the difference.
O'D

BTW- the IRS diff is good, but if you want the best buy Niftech.
