Samsonas evo unit is better and cheaper then MakTrac. I think if we could get custom ring and pinion for rear that would be great. Eliminate install of evo diff and custom axles in rear in addition to front. There may have been a fitment problem with transfer case aganst subframe in front. MakTrak used his own diffs with evo trans when he built Milner's car as I am told. MakTrak made Evo to 3sgte adapter plate.

Mistake. MakTrac used his own transfer case.

Still waiting on an answer from KAAZ. We were in contact yesterday through email and the US rep seems positive about the project based on his last conversation with their project manager. They also discussed possible revisions to improve upon the original design and once production starts it should take 3-4 months to complete. More news to come next week I've been told...

Happy New year!

"I was able to convince the project manager to revive this unit but he will now have to
negotiate and discuss about this project on their meeting next week.
Hopefully I will have a good answer for you and others by the end of next week.
All the managers have to agree to this in order for this project to come through.
Typical Japanese way of decision making. Takes time but once it comes through,
things will happen quick."

Things are moving along. Guess we'll see what happens next.

It's still under review as of two weeks ago. It was neither approved nor denied at the meeting I previously mentioned... I am getting restless though!

The KAAZ rep is apparently headed to Japan in a couple weeks and will be proposing our kit to the brass over there. The project has apparently been a topic of discussion at their regular meetings but hasn't received final approval. The intentions are good and we're hopeful of an approval from Japan since most of the projects that were lined up are moving along smoothly to completion.

On a personal note, the suspense is killing me! I'm expecting the worst so just give me an answer already.

Lets stay hopeful!

On similar news I fitted my newly refurbished original kaaz front LSD and have just come back from the car park where I've been trying to break it in by doing 30minutes of figures of 8


It very vicious and not road friendly .... Have a test at brands hatch UK on Friday will see if it holds up or blows up 8)
