This thing is unreal I noticed the difference right off the bat, when I stomp on the pedal now it just goes forward. Iím taking the car in a new direction and this is just the beginning. The other difference I notice is transitioning form from hwy to hwy the car really sticks. I had the guys at DC Performance do the install and these guys are true professionals. They went through the whole car front to back and resolved a potential issue with the 5.7 Quaife, I canít ask for more than that. Anyone who has been to the track, drag strip or just want maximum performance this is a must.
Here is what the Quaife offers:
The Quaife Differential powers both drive wheels under nearly all conditions, instead of just one. With an ordinary open differential, standard on most cars, a lot of precious power is wasted during wheelspin under acceleration. This happens because the open differential shifts power to the wheel with less grip (along the path of least resistance). The Quaife, however, does just the opposite. It senses which wheel has the better grip, and biases the power to that wheel. It does this smoothly and constantly, and without ever completely removing power from the other wheel.
I always liked that mod, especially considering that the stock set up applies the brake to the wheel that spins (traction control), on the other hand, the LSD sends power to the wheel that grips, hence the major inprovement off the line.
I assume you also have the noesp mod to send all the power to the wheels.
Must help in the rain and snow too.
If I had the cash and the need for max grip, I would get it, but it's pricey and the install must be pricey too.
well t his has been a mod ive been wanting to do but im waiting for new gears to come out i dont wanna pay twice to do the same work.
Congratulations again on getting "Quaifed", John. You're gonna love it at the track, bro!
Huh... I thought these were already out in the market..I think that a couple of guys have been using these for a while. I heard rumor that the quaife was the culprit behind a lot of prematurely snapped axles on the big end strokers..
But then again I am just some igmo on the forum, what do I know?
Im Gonna Get It Just Waiting For The Gears So While I Have The Unit Out I Can Swap In New Gears And Save The Money Of Ripping The Rear Apart Twice.
congrats on more powa!!!!!!!!!!
Congrat's John, if I only had the cash, lol!

Ok after a few days of driving the Quaife is just awesome in every aspect. As for the half shafts issue, thus far only the 6.1 guys have had problems. But I had the car measured for a driveline and half shafts.
The guys at DC Perormance are top notch. They do a lot of Viper work and I have yet to go there when they didn't have one or more Vipers with over a 1000 hp in their shop. Plus they caught an issue for the 5.7 unit that hads been corrected.
The Qauife is unreal, every time I drive I am more impressed by it. If your waiting for gears it might be a while and by that time you can add them. These cars are very complicated and nothing is easy as we have seen.
Matt, this would be perfect for your driving habits.
