There is no comparing 105 vs 116 performance. With the same power and driver quality, the 116 will beat 105's left,right and center, owing to better balance, suspension etc. There is NO way a car taking corners on three wheels will do it quicker than one on four!

Murray,
I went through the same questions years ago. If you want a short answer list, read Micke's pointers twice!

Hi guys, On the subject of preload, the minimum should be used,in order to make sure that there is uniformity during the transition between on and off lock operation and the diff will positively limit slip when one wheel is totally slipping.

Thanks Barry, you saved me the trouble of writing the sermon! Our diffs DON'T have the spring washers.As it comes from the factory (theoretically) the preload AR gives in the specs is 1,5kgm (about 15Nm) for 25% lock. This is fine for the street but for track use you may want 47% (advocated by AR, e...

Right Barry, to normal people it simply means 'good morning'. However, if you happen to be a member of an AR car club, the dictionary also gives another meaning: "where the f#*!!k are my Christmas presents???!!", hahahah!!! I swear, its true!

If you're looking for a Rotary Position Sensor (the formal name for a Throttle Pot) WITH a through D shaped hole, check out RS Components (company and site) and the part number is 319-310, with a retail price of 17.30UKP. Its the exa...

There's been more than enough talk about the Quaife LSD in the recent past. It is WAY better than the std factory LSD even when this last one is correctly adjusted, as the Quaife DOES NOT WEAR or require readjustment! You install it and that's the last time you'll need to see it (unless you break so...
