Re: Possible new diff set up ?

I think people will still swap it out for a Quaife diff.

I was thinking about a Quaife diff for the 03 zx3 D23, before it got totaled.

Not me .Who wants torque steer ??

" The helical Quaife diff in the last RS coped manfully with the 2.5-litre engine's 305hp, but the car still suffered torque steer and, as Urwin says, the system wasn't programmable."

Yea but the Quaife diff makes it so when your going through a turn, it puts the power to the wheel with all the weight on it, therefore pulling the car through the turn.

Rather then the power going to the wheel with less weight on it, and breaking traction.
