Details

The Quaife torque-biasing differential enables your car to accelerate quicker and corner faster by powering both drive wheels under nearly all conditions, instead of just one. With an ordinary open differential (standard on most cars), a lot of power is wasted during wheelspin under acceleration. This happens because the open differential shifts power to the wheel with less grip (along the path of least resistance). The Quaife, however, does just the opposite. It senses which wheel has the better grip, and biases the power to that wheel. It does this smoothly and constantly, and without ever completely removing power from the other wheel.

In straight-line acceleration runs, this results in a close to ideal 50/50 power split to both drive wheels, resulting in essentially twice the grip of an ordinary differential. While accelerating out of a turn, the Quaife biases power to the outside wheel, reducing inside-wheel spin. This allows the driver to begin accelerating earlier, exiting the corner at a higher speed.

The Quaife also controls loss of traction when the front wheels are on slippery surfaces such as ice and snow or mud, providing the appropriate biased traction needed. Power is transferred automatically without the use of normal friction pads or plates seen in other limited-slip designs.

The Quaife's unique design offers maximum traction and improves handling and steering, putting the power where it is needed most. A definite advantage on both the track and street. The Quaife is great for street driving or racing. Racers don't have to put up with locking mechanisms or spools that tear the steering wheel out of their hands when cornering. Because it behaves like an open differential during ordinary driving, street drivers will have trouble telling it's there until pushing the car's limits. The Quaife has been proven in everything from SCCA Rally to Formula 1. It provides autocrossers with such an advantage, it has become "required" equipment for a winning effort.

Every Quaife ATB Differential comes with something else others don't have: a Limited Lifetime Warranty. This warranty applies even when raced!

Requires professional installation.

Travannon Wiley Stellar customer service. Broad selection. Quick shipping. Easy returns. But most importantly, actual human customer service. In the days of internet shopping, Out Motoring is like going down to the ol' auto parts store. I fully intend to look here first when I need parts for my mini. Thank you Out Motoring.
