God, who told you that? Drag racers prefer the Torsens by a large margin.....if you've got to stick w/the 7.5 rear. Best wishes. WJ. [Wink]

Yeah what he said. Torsen is great, no clutches no adjustments. If your putting out a LOT of power you might want to go with an aftermarket like a Strange.

What they said . what did you do to take out a Torsen? I know a guy who was going 110 on a country road and he down shifted in to second to take a turn and he broke his torsen out and broke four teeth off the ring gear. who ever told you that a Alburn diff is better is a fool . They won't take near as much abuse as a Torsen and your can't rebuild them. I would buy a Torsen HD or a Eaton and go with it.

Mobius not only did that flat out lie to U, but it sounds as if they anally raped U without any lubrication!!!!! [Eek!]

Torsen is the best set-up in a factory 10 bolt! [judgement]
