Standard, open differentials have a bias ratio of 1:1. It comes standard with carbon-fiber bias plates for the best all around performance and lifetime durability. It is necessary to add gear oil before running. . These are shipped dry, you will need to add gear oil. This speed differential causes the Wavetrac® device to step into action: 2nd picture shown in 'View Detailed Images' Precisely engineered wave profiles are placed on one side gear and its mating preload hub.
The pulley also is the correct back spacing unlike the vr6 pulley, no spacer needed. The diff bodies are machined from case-hardened steel billet. This system starts with a set of high grade aircraft quality axle bars with our unique double temper and heat treat that makes them stronger and significantly more torsional than the factory axle bars. The Wavetrac®, however, is different: The innovative, patent-pending, Wavetrac® device in the center of the diff responds during these exact conditions when zero or near-zero axle-load occurs. Works only with 02a or 02j transmissions. However if you are using the you can keep the reverse switch, cable clutch users will get a bracket that bolts on to hold the cable at the trans. We will ship worldwide, please email us for a shipping cost if you are not provided one at checkout! Zero axle-load is a condition that occurs during normal driving, but creates the most noticeable problems when driving in extreme conditions.
It may work but it has been shortened to fit better in the mk2 chassis. With our kit you have sufficient room on the drive belt side to easily remove and install it in the car. You will need to choose 02a or 02j based on the shift tower you plan to use in your transmission in the options. This axial force is then considered a normal force into the bias plate, and as a function of the effective coefficient of friction, provide a resistive torque to the rotational motion of the differential pinions. A: Unfortunately that bracket they use works with factory axles and ours are custom lengths that work with our own brackets. Please also note that we require your old transmission back as a core. Internally, its gear tooth forms are optimized for strength and improved oil film retention over competitive designs.
There is room for most superchargers to fit as well with our conversion 4. Q: I have the scirocco 100mm axles already can buy just your brackets? A: actually with the mounts in its highest position the oil pan sits only about 1 inch below the lower control arm mounting position. All the items are available separately. We have a 1 year warranty on our axles and unlimited customer support on repairs and rebuilds. Each Wavetrac® Differential is crafted from the highest quality materials available. A: stage 2 is same as stage 1+ but includes stiffer motor mount bushings and a front core support brace 2.
When one wheel loses grip, the total available drive is lost as well at a 1:1 ratio. Every kit is built from mild steel and tig welded for strength and longevity. So, to avoid these problems, the preload from ordinary spring packs must be reduced to a level that renders them ineffective at preventing loss of drive. A: Our brackets work specifically with our axles so if you were to install the axles in the car and attempt to use our brackets they will not line up correctly. In the case where both wheels are on the ground during zero axle load, such as during a transition to deceleration, the Wavetrac® device is able to prepare the drivetrain for when the zero torque condition stops, eliminating the delay seen with ordinary gear diffs. The amount of drive torque one wheel can get over the other is described as the bias ratio, a measure of the torque split across the axle.
They can only apply as much drive torque as there is available traction at one wheel. The problem: Loss of drive during zero or near-zero axle-load conditions. Description Complete rebuilt 02J Transmission. These bias plates provide a mechanism to tune the response of the differential as a function of applied torque load. Changeable plates using materials with different friction coefficients to fine-tune the bias ratio are sold separately. Outbound shipping is not included. Return shipping on the core is included.
These will not work with our axles. At or near zero axle-load, the axles and therefore each side gear in the diff start to turn at different speeds. All your power goes out the slipping wheel - along the path of least resistance. Torque biasing differentials offer increased bias ratios over open differentials. Several stages available depending on power levels and vehicle usage. Q: Will factory header work? To best understand how the Wavetrac® is truly different from the other gear differentials on the market, you first have to understand the primary problem that the Wavetrac® solves. Return shipping on the core is included.
They were made specifically for our mounts and only our mounts. No cutting or welding required, you keep the stock linkage in the tunnel. It also occurs during the transition from engine driving a vehicle to engine braking and back, even with both drive wheels firmly on the ground. This is a quality oem style cable with grommets. Q: Will my car flip over? What makes a Wavetrac Different? Maybe you're just cleaning up your mk3 bay.
