What’s the advantage of the previous group buy at 660 pounds or the January allocation of 675 pounds when Quaife UK has charged 660 pounds on their website for months?

Automatic Torque Biasing Differentials manufactured for Porsche by QUAIFE - Quaife Engineering
We stopped Quaife putting the price to £788 in January 07 (Before a diff had even been made, as they did with most the other ATB's) and as I was the "fool" who invested a considerable amount of money to get Quaife to make the diff in the first place. (As they wanted me to "Guarantee" 30 units)
We have run the promo since we got the first ones at the end of March. Again it's year end and the Quaife's price has only gone up from £660 to £675 for 2008. The point is that as yet and only with autotech's exception we have taken and sold ALL production of the QDF12Q.
But basically, and in answer to your question Quaife "shouldn't" sell you one, as it should either come through motordrive or autotech.


(Taken from the start of the thread Post #10 )
but they want me to order 30 units, to make sure it happens!!!!!! don't suppose you've got £20k doing nothing in your back pocket..have you

Diff now fitted and ready to go........... Yea Haaaaaa................

Just need to get the 2 bald rears replaced (on Thursday morning) so I can get a true picture of how the grip levels have been improved on my local wet, slippy, muddy, cold, tight, bendy roads.

Initial impressions (after 1 short drive) are that you can really feel the rear tires break-away as a pair when you provoke the rear whilst exiting junctions. It feels beautifully controlled, and it feels like virtually all of the axel tramp has been removed as well.

Can’t wait to get on the road tomorrow morning!! I’ll report back once the new (or rather part used) tires are on towards the end of the week.

Thanks Allan, and thanks to Chris at Loe Bank Motors for the installation and the alignment, and the brake fettling!!

Jack

OK guys, Maybe your prayers have been answered, :):) I've had an email, and then a 45 min conversation with a very nice American Gentleman living in England. (Actually I would suggest he's been here some time and now, and might be as much, if not more English than American)..........
but Ed has offered the use of his Cayman S Tiptronic, so........I will contact the powers that be to find out when they can remove the diff and measure what they need to measure, alternatively if someone local to Ed can remove it and then get it down to Quaife for said measuring etc:
Now I don't want to inconvenience Ed for No reason,
So the Question is:- WHO WANTS A CAYMAN S TIPTRONIC QUAIFE AUTO TORQUE BIASING DIFFERENTIAL ?????
Stand up and be counted NOW...........

I know this is way dated so maybe I missed something, but this thread has gone on so long you should probably announce the possibility of a tip LSD in a separate thread. I'm sure there are plenty of people who want one. (fortunately, I already have my quaife)

I have a Guard in my GT3 and will put one in the Cayman if I pull the trigger next week. The quaife is great for Autocross, Guard can not be beat for the track. Have any of you gone from a GT3 to a Cayman? How long did it take to get used to going slower? I have always like the look of the Cayman but now that a 350HP is possible and the Sport version I might make the move.
