I guess I could weld them. What's the minuses of welding them on a front wheel drive car? I ran welded diffs on my Spridgets but that's RWD.


That's what we are running.
It's harder in the paddock.
You need to use the gas pedal to turn, and left foot brake to tighten the line.

As far as the need for HP levels of power, we needed it with ITB power too. Car will be faster welded than open for sure.

Anything is better than a open diff, if you make any power you will get wheel spin.

With the limited power of H prod, the phantom grip diff might be enough to reduce or even eliminate wheel spin.

With a welded diff there will be no wheel spin, but it can effect how it drives.

done

Only thing about the welded diff, if it's like the Spridget, it's ok in a straight line to push. If you turn it, the Spridget becomes a 10,000lb weight. i usually have to push them by myself so I'd probably have to get some car dolly's for it.

Do you want the welded diff that I have?

It's collecting dust sitting on a shelf, don't think I will ever want to use it.

I'll take it. I'm going to try to get a limited slip one but I think I'll take it and try it too. Just email me how much plus shipping to 37122 at saysprite@aol.com

Thanks Ted.

Steve I sent you a note on RoadRaceAutox

Got it, will send you an email tomorrow and see if I still have cores on the shelf. May have a complete diff.
