Hi Clive I am having the 2-3rd syncro hub etc changed and on bearing would run Redline or miller oil to help the syncro as the parts come to £600 without labour and would like to help the box as much as possible Thanks

Do you not fill the transfer box and gearbox separately.
Would you put the wavetrac ahead of the standard evo helical front diff

Thank you Clive:

TME is awesome
Wavetrac works great.
Guess we'll leave it alone!
Unless you come up with suggestion for VCU?!
For handling- am speculating that widening front track and adding bit more caster would help even more:
It's on "E6 TME Tarmac front arms" with ball joint in arm: Momentun Arms are an option but too expensive, so am thinking of picking up set of Evo 6 standard arms with separate ball joint bracket, and making a custom bracket to press in ball joint in location forward (20mm) and out (20mm) to widen the track and add caster.

What do you think?
Then cover front with GP Sports wide wings.
Tie rods need lengthening.




The E8: it's track car, street driven often- but track focused:
Front is OEM Torsen, center ACD, rear your recipe plated(thank you - it transformed the car!).

Front Torsen is ok, but if you have better proposal: I am listening.
Rear diff is noisy at low speed and I am ok with that!

Thanks Clive.

Yes, but the gearbox oil is pumped through an oil way by the final drive gear (thus the o-ring between the gearbox and transfer box) into the centre of the 'bell' in the transfer box to lubricate the front diff. So, there are two oils in the transfer box, the oil that lubricates the CWP and bearings (transfer box oil) and the oil that lubricates the front diff (gearbox oil) This is also why the 'bell' is sealed with an o-ring, to stop the 2 oils cross contaminating.

Yes, Wavetrac is superior to the standard helical. It has a higher bias ratio, and it also works if one wheel is lifted due to an internal cam which creates a force to push the internal gears against friction pads to create torque transfer. (A standard helical acts like an open diff if one wheel is off the ground)

So whats the solution on cars running front RS diffs if not modifying ? Whats the best oil which can be used in this case? As some E6s with this setup came from factory instead of open diff .

Sorry for a bit of hi jacking ...

You're confusing the standard helical LSD which mustn't be lubricated by LS oil, to a plated (non standard) LSD that must be lubricated with LS oil (which is the subject of the quoted statement)

I bump this thread back up because I want to replace the open front diff in my Evo 6 TME, but cannot decide if going for a Quaife ATB or Wavetrac. Car is not used on track, just on mountain roads ("fast road driving"). Any advice/experiences?

With the open diff I get front inside wheel spin in tight corners, I feel like I could improve traction and reduce bit of understeer.

I just realized I bumped a thread regarding center diff, but I was referring to the front diff. My mistake. Cannot delete/move my post now
