  • Diff?

    Has anyone here got a Diff fitted to the VXR?

    Does it really make a big difference to handling and putting power down on the road? I have been in an RS Focus and those things are brilliant for goign round corners compared to any other 2wd car i been in. Just wondering does the Diff really make any difference to a stage 2 astra?

    Thanks

            Does it seriously reduce wheel spin or is it only cornering?

              all VXR's have diffs, but just happnes to be an open diff, a limited slip diff on the other hand makes all the difference when applying power and putting the power to the tarmac, minimises the tc zapping the power and pulls it into line in wet weather and wheels spinning, but saying that you can easily induce wheel spin but the lsd does haul it back in, cornering is greatly improved with overall traction on exiting, general driving you will be none the wiser but push the limits and it comes into its own.
              Well worth investment, should be on the list as one of the first things to do......

                Sorry i meant a LSD like what the RS Focus had. I know all cars have a diff lol, stupid of me..

                Thats dead on, I think i will try saving the pennies and see if i can get one.

                Thanks
