One of the best upgrades to be made is custom building a differential. There are a lot of options to make improvements to the diff including gear sizing changes, added limited slip units, and limited slip lock-up options. It's easy to overlook the differential when planning your car's upgrades but it's one of the best areas to get return from your modification spending. Using a shorter (numerically higher) gear ratio will give you better acceleration and the limited slip effect will help get that power to the pavement. Changing the limited slip lock-up will change how the car behaves in corners - low lock-up will introduce more wheel spin; a higher lock-up will give more grip to the rear wheels but may induce an understeer condition (too much power pushing the car straight); a variable lock-up will give you the optimum balance. Our experience in diff building, car prep, and racing will ensure we get you the correct custom build for your specific driving conditions.

Gearing Changes  Using a shorter gear ratio (numerically higher) will give you better acceleration but will reduce your top speed. The higher ratio puts you at a higher RPM point for any given speed. This puts you further up in the power band, giving you more torque to the ground. Refer to the chart below for examples.
