Re: What causes diff to break?
186's are better than 202's, that's why they never raced em.
I've blown 3 diffs in my XF, all were due to 'shock loading'.
The 3 biggest killers of diffs are Axle tramping, Doing 1 wheel static burnouts at high speed, and going from dirt to bitumen while spinning the wheels.
