320i welded diff


Recommended Posts

I race welded, but would never run one on the street.

I have put them into my street car to break them in, check for problems, etc

and it is miserable.

When you're racing, any corner acute enough to slow you down

involves a lot of load transfer, and the inside wheel lifts and slips.

On the street, there is never enough load transfer, so

you're always fighting the diff with the front wheels, and

it's unpleasant. And somewhat unsafe, as you can get absurd

amounts of understeer that transition to gross oversteer in

lower- traction (rain) conditions.

That said, they're plenty stout to take it. Even the 2002

diffs didn't have too much trouble. The cv's do wear faster-

but not badly.

That's my experience...
