Saw this car at TWS

I saw this car at TWS last weekend and took a good look at it. It is stunning!! I don't get jealous often, but this car made me jealous. Happy for you! And not only does it look good, you seem to be able to drive it properly as well.

Hi Phil, actually I took about 6 months off from the track, so I had lots of time to make some modifications. Glad you like it!

Delrin Diff bushings

Quick question. With the Delrin diff bushings are you getting noticeable diff whine in the cabin? I am considering the same but still use my car as DD as well and was wondering whether the diff bushings would be too much?

My diff supposedly had a bad pinion bearing and I installed a rebuilt diff from Turner which was a lot more noisy (grinding sound) than my original. Since then, I have switched back to my original diff and the noise is much less. The diff whine from switching to Delrin bushings was a little more noticeable, but the grinding sound from the rebuilt diff was much louder.
