Thanks. I'll find one here in the US.
I'd reach out to Quaife in the UK and see who their US distributor is. Although Sterling is pretty weak right now, might be a good time to buy direct.

FYI that new C514 LSD from RSX Racing Solutions in Italy is a plate-type. Smoother engagement/disengagement than Quaife ATB. Unfortunately RSX's website (https://rsxracingsolutions.com/en/diffe ... -fiat.html) is relatively useless when it comes to technical details on these diffs, but there was some chatter recently on FB: https://www.facebook.com/groups/518169058815367/

I got a Quaife ordered yesterday with MVP Motorsports. The down side is they don't stock them in England at the factory and have to build them. So it will be May before I get it. I have a new Clutchmaster clutch I'll put in when the LSD get here. I pulled the rear axle/ swing arm yesterday so I can install Uniballs which are on the way. I'm sure hoping the LSD gets here and I have time to install it before Twisted.

You love cutting these installs close :)

The LSD is fantastic on the Twisted run. Just creates amazing confidence that you can put the power down and know the car is not going to flash the ETC light at you and understeer you into trouble, especially on some of the turns where there is a lot of loose surface material. It's not good for your paint or the windshields of the cars following you.

Paul do you have Uniballs on your Abarth ? I can't find anything on which way they go in. The pictures on the web show them pressed in from both ways. I've had trouble getting an email to DNA in Italy for help.

I don't think so; and if I do I wouldn't know which way to press them. Maybe Bob Zecca can get a response from DNA for you? Or perhaps Bryan knows?
