Default Which rear dif ?

Hello ! So I am in search for a new rear dif ! My car is a 2012 sport manual ! I just ordered a Fast intentions twin turbo setup and it will be here in a month and a half or so . I road race the car but also drive it on the street . I have a DD so it only has like 9k miles on it . So which rear dif should I go with that would work best for me ? Thanks Ken (PS If anyone needs a hitch contact me at 370z Hitch.com - Trailer Hitch, Towing, Trailer Hitches For Cars )

Quaife is a good choice for a street car.

If it's primarily track with a little street go with a clutch type diff (OSG or Cusco). If it's mostly street with a little track get the Quaife.

If you decide to go with the Quaife let me know. I'll have a used one for sale in a couple weeks.

I went with Wavetrac because it performs like a clutch type diff as it locks where Quaife does not. The cost is comparable to Quaife and the maintenance is the same as oem.

I got all the extras from different vendors. Z1 has a kit that includes a Nismo or Z1 rear differential cover. I ordered my the other flang from ConceptZ.

For OSG kind of money I think I would have made sure which one it was.

Picking up my Z tonight from the shop with my new Cusco RS 1.5 installed. Too bad the roads are wet so any real break in of the diff will have to wait.
