Without a quaife or wavetrac? Not many. With those? Big precision ect.10-4, Without going LSD what have the fellow swedespeeders done?
Hhow many of us T5 M66 guys put a bigger turbo on, tuned etc?
I did a larger rear. If there was a smaller front I’d downgrade from 24mm I think it’s too stiff already. Quaife shouldn’t affect or play into the roll of the body at all.SB, do you think the Quaife will necessitate a larger front sway bar?
The H8 battery certainly seems to have increased inside wheelspin on mt 01 T5M, especially at low speed.
This is why a thicker front sway bar is indicated when a Quiafe is put into a FWD car. However, the front swaybars on these P2s run on the high stiffness/large diameter size to begin with.My understanding is that an LSD will actually increase torque steer. An LSD will allow different torques to be developed by each wheel - an open diff does not.
This is likely to increase "pull" on the steering ie torque steer.
I’ve ironed out torque steer with alignment, delrin and strut braces.FWIW On my '98 I still get torque steer with the Quaife. It does a good job of wheelspin on curves, but in my experience doesn't do much for torque steer. Fresh engine mounts and a strut brace might be more important.
I have IPD sways in the front and back. It's a pretty cool upgrade.This is why a thicker front sway bar is indicated when a Quiafe is put into a FWD car. However, the front swaybars on these P2s run on the high stiffness/large diameter size to begin with.
Note that the hollow 24 mm front bar is equivalent to the 22.7 mm solid bar found on some early P2s, have posted the measurments and calculations for this elsewhere on this board.
I’d suggest a wavetrac or a quaife. Reason being that a gripper will contaminate your gear oil with friction material and that will not be good for longevity of the gear and bearing hard faces. Quaife are less expensive at the moment because the pound is weak.I need a clutch upgrade at the moment and since I'm at it I'll install a Gripper most likely.
Well sure they’re excellent for traction.Had no idea about the oil contamination. I'll look into that. Thanks.
All the UK fwd Volvos that go the Ring every year are fitted with these and swear by it.
