Torque Biased LSD

My trans on the '85 944 gave up the ghost, so I'm planing on swapping in one from an '87 924S. I was going to have a local shop with a 944 guy give the old/new tranny the once over, but since I AX...

Fast,
I know there have been some spec guys that have removed the balance shaft out west (SanDog). You may want to check the NASA website.

Actually for any sport driving, you really only need to increase braking at the front. That's why when they went to the bigger brembo 4 piston set-up for turbo, they used a proportioning valve on...

Paragon offers a more inexpensive replacement. I think the best bet is to find a good price on a new one and replace, because you won't know what you have until you open it up anyways. The big thing...

I think if the master cylinder seals around the internal plunger go, you may not notice the leak externally. If you can't find any visible leaks along the lines or at the calipers (two person check,...

I know Brembo makes a great after market set, but I imagine you would have to go to a "Big Brake" set-up. I don't think they make stock size versions for the 944.

I'll have to dig around for a pic. I normally drive around with 215/60 BFG Traction TAs on stock 15" cookie cutters. The phone dials have stickier Victoracer 225/50s for AX only.

I probably wouldn't go smaller than stock outside diameter for the track, since you'd lose high end speed. I run that 225/50 size on stock 15" phonedials for AX, because they accelerate faster, and...

Pelican sells spacers and adaptors as well. If the difference is large you'd use the adapters, but wouldn't need new studs as they're part of the set-up.
