    Supercar Engineering Crazy car handling pack: First impressions

    Well, around 3 months or so ago I bought all 3 of the SCE Recommended diffs, the Kaaz rear, SCE Centre and Quaife Front. the car feels pretty similar during normal boring driving with the exception fo the rear, it's pretty clunky during any sort of low speed manouver especially reversing into car parks! keep in mind that these are all meant to get quieter and smoother with age and I've put maybe 100-200km on the car at this stage.

    the biggest difference comes when pushing the car in or out of a bend, where the car would previously push forward into understeer, it now rips around corners like a mad thing, the understeer is still there however you need to pretty much let the car coast for it to happen, as soon as you force the car into decelleration (engine braking) or plant it the car seems to pull around and very strangely( ) it feels like the arse end wants to come out on me!

    anyone else With LSD's care to share their experiances?

    I wish I could afford them all. I hope to get the center diff in the not to distant future.

    I also hope to do this later this year. Also tossing up the idea of converting to a USDM 6 speed and then doing all the diffs. Plus rear swaybar, 3 point front strut brace and coilovers it should handle like nothing else.

    to my knowledge, the center is not compatible with the w4a33 xfer case. not to mention that the driveshaft nipples are different. so eventually i'll either have to search for what the DSM guys have for a torsen center diff (which i'm not sure actually exists); devise some kind of conversion to use/mate the 6-speed xfer case to the w4a33; or just give up.
