    Mine hasn't broken yet. Only had a single run at the drags (as the car conked out half way) but did 11.1 @ 122. Other than that done a couple of thousand street km's - zero issues.

    Edit - no idea on gearsets.

    Still haven't broken it. Handful of 10 sec passes all leaving the line at 1.7 60ft. Launches and tracks straight every time.

    I'm more worried about axles now than diff.

    mine went in this week. looking forward to taking it down thw strip as soon as im home on a wednesday.

    bit of drama getting the gearset fitted, diff shop reckons the r31 housing requires m75 gears and the dana m78 gears wouldnt fit in my housing. tuff car parts reckons you can make it work by machining the pinion and grinding housing.
    diff shop ground housing, pinion fit without being machined but there was a poor meshing pattern and it just wouldnt allow enough adjustment/shimming to make it work nicely. so ended up going with a genuine set of 3.9s.

    I had a big argument with them as a couple places said you would have to machine the gears (even 3.08) and its a cunt to get spot on. Tuffcarparts say nah nah fit in without mods, poor diff guy spent a few hours making it fit and now has a whine at decel. Not happy jan

    yeah i wont deal with them again. after i said the diff shop fitted them and they wont work regardless of machining the pinion head (nothing had been machined, modified or used other than dummy fit), he said well theyre second hand now and we dont deal in second hand parts.

    fair shout, thats their right as a business to make that call.

    I've been using a Drivetech mechanical LSD in my VS BW75. Went in with 3.7 genuine Spicer gears with no mods or machining needed.
    It's done a few clutch kicks on the street and 5 launches at the drags with no fuss, works really well. No noises. Price was around the same as the Torquelock.

    The diff shop did say Drivetech had stopped selling them for VE because of bolts coming loose and grenading diffs, something he has witnessed. No problems with the BW model.
