    Ordered my Quaife ATB LSD today from Gearboxman - (www.gearboxman.co.uk). They are going to refurb the 2nd hand box & fit the ATB LSD. The M56 is bubblewrapped up & waiting to go. Should be good eh?

    I fitted my Quaife nearly 4 years ago now. I can still honestly say it's one of the best mods you could do to your T5.

    Couldn't agree more with Pete, at least now you'll be warming up both those Michelin slicks on the warm up!

    Car recovered on Thursday (thanks AA) with a siezed Front O/S caliper. HLM supplied the bits & I got my hands dirty in the rain on Saturday - first time in a while. Also changed out the worn pads & front disks. So we are all good for another few years. Car turned 149000 today. Still goes like of a hot,greasy shovel.

    Ordered the casing on the upgraded gearbox to be shot blasted - so will come back nice & shiny. God - I am so vain!!

    Sorry to hear the need to call out the Auto-mobile Association, never good. Its not just you though Dave I have had them out a few times albeit Tyre failure!

    On a positive note Plenty of life in the old Girl yet! I hit 201K on the original engine in the 854 and was running perfectly. Should see another 100k out of her Dave.

    get in touch with ttv racing they did my flywheel on my 940 to take 850r clutch which is all fitted and you wont break that flywheel and i would go single mass not dual mate but they do both.

    Is the 850R clutch suitable for my application & what is the difference between it & the T5 clutch I have?

    Also ttv racing - which is the better flywheel (bearing in mind I still want a driveable car at the end of the day). SMF or DMF?

    I swapped over to a SMF and 850R clutch a couple of years ago. The standard T5 clutch (which had done 5000miles max) was slipping at 375lb/ft. 850R clutch solved the problem and I'm now running a KKK24, not had it on dyno yet, so don't know what power/torque it is now. But can't imagine the torque will be much more than that, if any.

    AFAIK the 850R clutch is as heavy duty as P1 clutches get. You can use a sachs 707 pressure plate with it, to get a higher clamping force(?).

    You do lose a fair amount of refinement going over to a SMF from an 850 if i'm honest.

    Having said all that, i'm not sure what the differences between ME7 and Pre ME7 if any.

    Vis-a-vis refinement - Do you mean that the power delivery becomes jerky or just that the clutch is heavier to use?

    Actually one of the benefits is the clutch is super light, and a real pleasure to use. It's just not a smooth when engaging gear as it is standard with the DMF.

    Having read around a bit more - as my GB is a later model of the M56 - with the internal slave cylinder - I believe that I already have a SMF - maybe not the lightened one. Just feel it is prudent to change the clutch & or flywheel when the gearbox is off.

    As per Chris. My 850R clutch is lighter and easier to use than my old T5 clutch!
