HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

Limited Slip Differential

Post  Luke714 on Sun Feb 28, 2010 11:01 am

hello,

It seems like the transaxle and axles are the weak point of this conversion. I'm planning on putting in a solid trans mount as well as fabricating a trans brace. I'm also planning on installing the reinforcement plate into the transaxle itself. Should I be worried about stronger axles? How hard can someone be on the transaxle before it blows up? I'm probably going to be in the 350-400hp range.

Is sideways in a parking lot out of the question or does it just mean no dumping the clutch at high revs (which I wouldn't do no matter how tough it is)? Also, it seems like proper adjustment of the ring and pinion gear isn't always done, is that worth doing?

Thanks,
Luke

I have a 951 transaxle with custom axles & a Quaife. I take it drag racing, and road race it, and generally act like an idiot with it on the street:

It will spin the tires (DOT soft compound 295/30/18's) whenever, in parking lots, 'round town, on the highway at 80MPH, pretty much all the time. I have probably 1000 miles of tire spin logged without much issue - other than tire wear.

About all I do is I let the car start rolling before I burst the power. I quit sidestepping clutches about a lifetime ago. Do the same & you will be golden.

Along these lines I finally confirmed that my car does not have a limited slip differential. Since I have it up on jack stands I did the test and it failed that. The option codes also don't include M220. What is the cheapest way of getting a limited slip fitted up?

massive amount of talk on this on ****list. TonyG is the man. There are basically 3 types of LSD's. I don't have time to summarize, but they are fairly new posts. Awesome info. Paul Guard has some posts in there too, but that is a bitchy/whiney post about a competitor. Look for the most recent ones Tony has posted in.

What do you want to do?

I personally want to road race a lot, so I will be following his example. Its $ 3k or so. But, he does just mount the GT to the $500 turbo trans.

If you are autox'ing, then the Porsche may do the trick. If you are dragging, then there are others. If you don't mind missing out on the deccel lockup factor, any will be good. The pcars ones, you can rebuild and play with based on plates and oils. I don't know if quaiffe will do that, but they supposedly last longer without fiddling.
