I have read that some people that destroys front diff, may also damage the block because of this... Might even happen even with stock hp.
It seems in some cases, the ETS lock up is the culprit, but not all.
Does the gears break because of weakness, or is it because of the flex of the oem housing that make tooth backlash to big and rip off the teeth?
Does the spider/sidegear break and these bits then breaks ring/pinion?
I would like to reinforce mine, so I can launch without being afraid of destroying the engine block.
I think I will get a Quaife diff anyway so both front axles stays about the same rpm, but if I also need a billet housing and stronger ring/pinion, it starts getting expensive. BUT not as expensive as a new block...
My car is pretty stock as per now, but I have started collecting parts, so next step is about 800hp/600ftlb.
Thinking of upgrading the ETS with 1 more plate vs stock.
Will never launch with slicks in front, only street tires.
So what is the main culprit for front diff breaking with about 1000 hp build on street tires in the front?
