I was visiting the 'other' site listening to a few lambasting Sal...Kind of a joke. Obviously they dont see the difference in 'traffic'!:thumbsup:
Anyway. do yourself a favor and check the pix on the main web page..http://www.difftechnics.com.au/..
300m billet axles. If you notice, the monaro diff has the standard CTS yoke. The parts are similar. Look at the install. Also very close. This will be a bolt in unit with stronger rubber bushings. No voids. Kurt decided against urethane, undependable and noisy. When he gets a couple cranked out he will be coming with them to the US to supervise the install(to be determined). My hope is to be able to use the 2006 V axles although the diff may require custom CV's due to the new rear. This is a reversable mod!
Not that you would want to but If you sell the car put the stiff diff back in.:thepan: Patience will pay off. This is going to be a quality peice befitting the V..............

Should it not pan out, (i do not believe this will happen)you can all send me hate mail, I will deserve it.

I cant wait to see what Kurt and the fellas have up their sleeves. Any idea on a finish date? Now that winter is coming upon the Aussies, maybe they will have more time to devote to it...

Looking forward to their offering.

There is a piece we are waiting on from the machine shop at the moment !

We are going to take a little extra time to make sure this is a bolt in proposition, As we have found with our GTO products when they are more user friendly the product is the more people are going to go with it and really I can totally understand people's desire for a bolt in mod and its somethig we specialise in here but patience is a virtue they say !

So far we've done

Honda S2000 Bolt in driveline package from gearbox to back of wheels utilising a nissan skyline rear , We have ran 11.1 @ 126 with one of these set ups.

Pontiac GTO Bolt in 9" IRS the fastest times for this setup has been
10.2 @ 140 Mph
10.35 @ 135 Mph
and many more

Corvette 9" IRS Bolt in , can't we've sold many !

Jaguar - Early type as used in hot rods/cobra kit cars

CTS-V - Coming soon .............. :rant2:

Along with many other products !


You can see our line of GTO products at http://www.difftechnics.com.au/gto.html (http://www.difftechnics.com.au/gto.html)
Those are GTO products although but you get an idea of what we get up too

Kurt, quick question. Will this new diff also address the wheel hop issue?

While we are going to have new front solid rubber bushes made , I can't see how it will cure wheel hop, Wheel hop is generally suspension related !

Hopefully this will help with "wheel stands" :thumbsup:

I know it's early,however some of us would like some ballpark prices on the new diff.ThanksYeah, by no means am I demanding any price now, but it would help to know a foreseen minimum and a foreseen maximum. I have been a proponent for getting a new diff. But I am also not wealthy by any means, a hard working slob here. I will need some heads up as to when and how much this will cost in order for me to pony up.

I've got about $4-5G earmarked for the V this year. But I've also got plans on a new home and adding an Escalade to the fleet at the end of '06. So $$$ must be planned out.

So $$$ must be planned out.Well spoken again Jim,I relize R&D costs are unknown but shipping costs,half shaft costs,installation costs could start to be ballparked for budgeting.Also for us guys planning on coil over and sway bar mods would like some reassurance that these mods will not be affected.I was very turned off by the fact that the other diff competitor would have to relocate exhaust on their trial car.Thats not a big deal but not a drop-in.

I guess the closest comparison is a GTO 9" IRS ............ They are currently under R&D again for improvement ! But the last batch were retailing for
$ 2500 USD minus internals !
