Gripper Diffs differential Opel Astra, Vectra, Corsa F16, F18, F20
For: Opel Astra, Vectra, Corsa with F16, F20 gearboxes
Whilst based on the well proven multi-plate principle, these differentials embody unique features of detailed design which make them unusually progressive in action and extremely compact, such that they can be packed into applications where hitherto no LSD has been available.
Their performance and durability has been validated both by extensive testing and by successful usage on both track and stage.
They can be set up with varying amounts of preload to suit individual driver preference and particular conditions. In Rallying they offer the additional advantage that, in the event of failure of other transmission elements, e.g. a broken drive shaft (even at low levels of preload) they may still provide sufficient traction to drive out of a stage. Models are currently available to suit a number of popular applications, based on three sizes of largely standardized internal components.
Designs for further applications are currently under development and requests to consider the feasibility of one-off designs are welcomed.
Current ramp angles available are 30/65, 40/65, 45/45.
