Front diffs

Got two front and centre diffs
1x Cusco rs diff 1.5 way
2x ATS 1.5 way

Really my main question would be which one is best out of the two bearing in Mind will be doing track and hill sprints and weekend driving .

Iam looking to find how they pair up ie strength and how hard can they be used in racing not fussed about clunky noises ect

I've not used the ATS but apparently they're more suited to gravel use. You might be able to play about with the plates in the centre diff to make it more suitable for tarmac but would be a lot of effort.

I use the Cusco and like it so that would be my choice.

Cheers,

Simon

1.5 way at the front is too aggressive for tarmac.

I don't have much 1st hand experience on this, but I've read a lot (because I also want to improve my front diff at some point). If I were to put an uprated front diff in my 6, I would put either a Quaife (plug and play), or a factory LSD (cheaper). You could fit wavetrack but they need some machining work to fit. I would prefer the wavetrack tbh but don't want to modify the casing. Read about differences between Wavetrack and Quaife if you're interested, they have different pros/cons.

I use my car for hill climbs and sprints, don't bother with a Quaife, no different to a standard torsen and they're not as good as a plated diff for competition use.

You'll need to check but most of the Cuscos come with a variety of settings so you can run 1.5 or 1 way. If yours doesn't then you can get the parts to change it from Coordsport.

1.5 way on the Cusco isn't usually that aggressive on power off (obviously need to check what yours is like) so will probably be OK on Tarmac.

I ran a Ralliart plated diff on the that was "1.5 way" and it was fine, a little bit of locking on power off is quite helpful. My Cusco is set up as a 1 way.

I would suggest checking the Cusco to see what options it has, configuring it how you think you'll want it and then adjusting it if it doesn't do what you want. There's various sources of setup information on the web

Alternatively, talk to Clive W who has a lot of experience with these diffs and will be able to service and set your diff up with the characteristics you want or that he thinks you'll need for what you want to do with it.

If you want a plug and play solution, go with Clive, if you want to have a go yourself, you just need to bite the bullet and get on with it.

Cheers,

Simon

Thatís the kind of information i was looking for cheers Simon. Think bottom line will be send it to Clive and have it set up to the requirements that I need out of the car .As I personally donít think iam equipped with the knowledge to tinker about with it .

Happy to help

I do all of the work myself so can't personally vouch for Clive but I've never seen anything but good posts about his work, so I think it' safe to assume he'll do a good job.

Cheers,

Simon
