I've been chatting to Frank at Modena recently and there is a possiblity for another group buy for some Torsen front diffs! If there is enough interest some centre diff's to!!!
The minium order would be 10 of each. As he had some issues last time with stock not being paid for/left over. This time he would like a deposit upfront before going into production.
The rough numbers for the front diff are as follows (with the current exchange rate)
Diff Price: £526.82 ($1100)
Deposit required: £200
Postage: £50 ($100)
Import duty and tax: £140.66
The Centre diff he is currently working out a price for, it will be more expensive than the front and will require about a 38% deposit again. But postage and % tax / import duty should be similar.
The Centre diff will be based on a ramp and plate style the gains should be quite impressive, He has also always thought a spool could work as well as it only couples the front and rear and has no bearing on turn, this concept has been tried on the big banger wrx cars, a true 50/50 split which is very fast on tarmac and impressive on gravel.
The current plan, if there is enough interest get signed up below, when we have 10 people i'll ask for deposits (which will be non-refundable) that can either be paid to me or direcly to Frank. Once this is complete he will go into production and then ask for the final payment, again which can be paid to me or directly to Frank.
The diffs will be shipped over in one hit to myself and then I'll distribute around the UK.
If required in Europe or further afield then the postage will be adjusted accordingly for this.
Any savings that might happen along the way with the postage or import will be sent back to the individual, but sadly vice versa any additional cost incured will have to be passed on.
Feel free to pass this on to anyone else who might be interested!!
