Quaife vs. MFactory, I'll take which ever is cheaper. Quaife raised its prices a while back, I haven't talked to Mac lately on how much they are now.

Both are equal in strength IMHO.

Since OBX took a crap I've been installing new MFactory's and new/used Quaife's. As an installer you can't tell a difference, both are great to installed, rarely any shimming required, but you still have to check!!!!!!

Quaife has a "Drag-Spec" B-series diff now.
Lower TBR, higher TQ and HP capacity.

Bone - Mac doesn't handle Quaife anymore.

As with all our parts, they are designed for race-use-only, and various factors can be involved that could cause a failure. With that being said though, the Diff is not under a lot of stress compared to the rest of the transmission components (Gears, Shafts etc), so is very unlikely to break before something else does.

Of course though, if any failure is due to manufacture fault or defect, as always, MFactory customer service always shines through
So....is that a yes or no?

As stated in my post (dated 3/14/2012), the MFactory Helical LSD comes with a Lifetime Warranty, and is also stated on our website. Why would what I say not be the truth?

You should look at the date of the posts before quoting them.

We are the R&D facility for MFactory parts and have personally never seen a defective MFactory helical LSD. On the very rare occasion that we have received a broken MFactory LSD, they immediatly stepped up an honored the Lifetime Warranty.
