  • Want a Quaife!

    Perry here. Wassup, Folks? My 2003 Birkin got centerpunched in the back by a trailer ball on an SUV. The guy could not see my tiny car parked behind him. I now have his insurance money to buy a Quaife LSD. I figure if I drive fast enough nobody can see the dent anyhow. Priorities! Problem is, Quaife (in the UK) will not make any diffs without 10 orders. They currently have NONE on order. What I am looking for is a "dusty box" Quaife on a shelf somewhere. WireWheel has none, Quaife in Ca has none. Dick Brink in Tex has none. @#$%^&*!! If any of you cats have an idea please let me know before I blow the money on heroin, hookers, & Precious Moments collectible plates. Perry (619) 840-4142. Thanks.

    Check with John Coombs in Mariposa. I visited him a few weeks ago and he showed me a never installed Quaiffe diff from his Birkin (that he sold) and that he was going to sell now, too.
    However, this is not the complete diff, only the LSD piece from Quaiffe.

    I am in Europe right now and don't have John's number but somebody here surely will (Stan?)

      John is on the members list, just click on his name and send him a private message.

      Why not spend some of your money on the Shelby Club Track day this weekend?

      See the events section.

        Quaife----Perry.

        Thanks everybody. I found that Dick Brink DOES have one. Just one. I figured he didn't as he had been ignoring my calls. Guess he was just ignoring me because I'm a dork. I'm sending him some dough now. The John guy would have been great, but I'm going w/ the sure thing. -----Like a dork---- I'll see you guys at the Cafe on Sat before the Speedfest. I'll be the guy w/ the dented 7. ---Perry.

          Quaife

          Hi

          Yes Gert was right I do have a Quaife that I am going to sell.
          I no longer need it since selling my car. It was an upgrade I had planned to carry out but was unable to get around to.
          I have posted some photos and can answer any questions about it if needed.
          Good luck with your car.

          John Coombs.

            Hi John,

            Does the Quaife unit work in the Caterham independant rear-end?

            What is the asking price for the LSD unit?

            Thanks

                Still for sale

                No not sold yet I am on vacation at the moment but have a lap top with me so can be contacted.

                I asked Gert for advice on price and we both agreed that $1000.00 was a fair price.

                Let me know if you're interested.

                    quaife fitment

                    Hi Rod,

                    Be sure to check the fitment of this LSD. The Birkin uses a different differential than the Caterham.

                    Here is the quaife page for the Caterham LSD:

                    http://www.quaife.co.uk/Caterham-De-...B-differential

                    Here is the one for the Birkin:
