Affordable plate type diffs!
July 06, 2016 12:18PM
Hey guys, in my usual search for affordable alternatives to the mainstream market I came across 3J Driveline. After a little research I found that these are 3 of the main guys that were part of Tran-X but decided not to stay on when the company was purchased by Quaife. Sounds as though they have a lot of happy customers and deal primarily with the racing crowd as evidenced by their lineup.
$730USD for the entire VW trans range is a steal, and they have diffs for the focus as well. I like that you get to specify the desired preload and it comes to you set-up where most others will need to be shimmed to your own spec once you get it.

Wow, that is a great deal! I love how they are fully customizable. You really are the king of finding inexpensive VW rally parts! If I didn't already have a KAAZ I would be all over this.

I have a bit of an odd way of scouring the Internet.
If anyone is looking for a needle in the haystack just let me know.

Yeah but VW parts that old are pretty much impossible to find around here.

Alternative to the 020 is whatever trans is behind a front drive Ecoboost.

I'll wait for the Brexit boondoggle to get bad enough that I could buy that for $1000 and a packet of crisps.

I will be buying that first link, though. I dunno what voodoo you do but thanks!

No worries, betting I can find it for free once I get on a desktop, Apple products blow for finding stuff. I could see where you had asked on a couple of forums....
