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.

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