educate me: merits of quaife vs. torsen diff's (archive)

[ Follow Ups ] [ Z3 Coupe Message Board ] [ Msg. Board FAQ ]

Posted by CN on January 02, 2001 at 18:02:36:

have to beef up the driveline eventually, and there are many options. you can increase the ratio (3.23 to 3.46,3.73), increase the percentage lockup (25% to 75%), upgrade the diff. fins (to the alpina unit), or change to the quaife differential from the torsen unit.

now, i've read the torsen white paper from someone's link, but don't know a thing about quaife. can someone point me to a source (preferably firsthand) where i can compare the merits of quaife diff's to torsen diff's?

thank you all.
