Possibly is but the fact is, why would anyone take something and swap it's badge to try to make out it's better than something else?

Phoenix has the best idea. No badges. No bull. Just get on with it...

BTW I personally think it's got a good price already. Another 2 days to go...

I can sell these for at least £250, Iíve had £300 for one before, theyíre rare to get hold of and still cheaper than a used Quaife.

Theyíre becoming harder and harder to find so prices are skyrocketing, still a good diff in my opinion.

So good that you had one in yours, drove mine with the Quaife and ordered a Quaife the next day. Hmmm.

I'm not saying they don't work, Gaz has got some really good times on the strip with his. The way it delivers the power is the issue for me. Driven 4 cars with these. All been the same.

Thereís no doubt that the Quaife is better at transferring the power, thatís why I bought one, Gaz proves though that with careful geometry setup that the Torsen can be very effective at getting the power down too it obviously just relies on a better setup to be as effective, can you imagine the sort of launches Gaz would be getting with a Quaife fitted and his setup?!
The Torsen always felt best in the bends when I could always feel it pulling me around the corner, even with my poor setup it always felt reassuring in a bend.
Iím interested to see how Charly gets on with the Gripper, Iím sure it will be killer on the strip but Iím interested how it is on the road, hope to see him at an event and get to go out in it soon.
