They use tiny FSK size 10 bearings which flog out very quickly (a few days) :(
Bearing of that size just arent rated to take high axial shock loadings.

Ah, all good then :)

That is a pretty looking engine. Do you think you will get to drive the car this year?
Also, is your wing high enough in relation to the roof?

I am planning on running the first test day at NJMP-L April 2nd (so long as all the stars align)

The wing is spec. The class rules dictate only the APR GTC-200

EBay. Guy from Greece posted last year but no sale... I contacted him through eBay messenger, after 6 months of bad communication he relisted them but as a whole trans with C-one close ratio set too.... In the end it was an 8 month process, spent way too much and I have gears I can't use at the moment.

wow just seeing them for sale is exciting. There was a set in a old rally car up in canada a few months ago but the seller never replied. You are officially the first human being I have had contact with regarding the TRD diffs. LOL that's amazing man, congrats, I have met more astronauts than TRD celica diff owners.

Let's hope these overpriced used diffs don't explode when I do my first test day. :)

The fastest dude in the country in my class runs an e30 M3 with Gulf livery. If I can run with him it'll be two grpA cars running up front almost 30 years later... which is also pretty cool.
