    The supra diff is a pretty trick piece of kit in standard form, plated LSD and you can get a 3.9 ratio as well. Both ratio's are pretty close to the standard cosworth 3.64, but give you just that little bit quicker gear change. Love it, locks up better than a chocolate cossie diff and only costs £90 second hand :lol:

    Yeah that's it, call me names for calling you out for never ever drifting.

    A ginger bloke with glasses calling me names on the Internet. Nice.

    Properly cool build, some brilliant thought and work has gone into this. Keep updating it dude, it's a good read for me on my commute home on the crappy train.

    Nope, calling it because its fact, you're a total pleb! Look at the car, pi$$ funny that you delude yourself into thinking it doesn't drift :lol:

    Your comments since day one of posting this thread have been negative and slanderous without any evidence to support your ridiculous claims....you sir are a total spastic with a keyboard. Do one ;)

    Ah nah, stick to what you have mate. The mk1 Focus RS is really a fantastic car and can out handle quite a few things, but the torquesteer thing does get a little annoying and you just cannot put all the power down without tranny hopping down in a straight line. RWD for the win ;)

    That diff kit is a lovely piece of engineering.
    Nice car, don't give a fuck if it drifts or not.

    It does, hence taking the time to develop the kit with an awesome machinist so I and other Cossie owners can use a diff that lasts with track and drift abuse ;)
