Gripper Multi-Plate Race Spec Differential to suit the Ford IB5 gearbox.
The Gripper Limited Slip Differential uses a multi-plate design which, when it detects a difference in wheels speed across the driven axle, locks the driveshafts together increasing traction. This increase in traction equates to faster launches and increased corner exit speeds as the wheels are no longer spinning as they would with an open diff. Torque is equalised across the driven wheels sending drive torque to both whereas an open diff will send the torque to the spinning wheel wasting drive in tyre smoke! Understeer and oversteer characteristics are controlled and your car laps faster as a result.
This differential is available with several options of setup:
A – Tarmac racing – 40/65 Ramp angles with a 120NM Pre-Load
B – Road/trackday use – 40/65 Ramp angles with a 60NM Pre-Load
C – Gravel Rallying – 30/60 Ramp angles with a 120NM Pre-Load
D – Gravel Ralying – 30/60 Ramp angles with a 60NM Pre-Load
E – Old ZF Race Spec – 45/45 Ramp angles with a 120NM Pre-Load
F – Old ZF Road Spec – 45/45 Ramp angles with a 60NM Pre-Load
G – Race Soft Locking /lightweight – 50/80 Ramp angles with a 120NM Pre-Load
H – Road Soft Locking /lightweight – 50/80 Ramp angles with a 60NM Pre-Load
J – Race use (open on over-run) – 30/80 Ramp angles with a 120NM Pre-Load
K – Road use (less plates) – 30/80 Ramp angles with a 60NM Pre-Load
Gripper Lifetime Warranty / Guarantee
For customers peace of mind, all Gripper Diffs are covered by a lifetime warranty / guarantee against poor workmanship and inferior materials. Cases, lids and gears are made of aero quality steel and are built to tight tolerances which make them one of the most reliable and sought after transmission products on the market. Plates have minute machined oil grooves designed to allow a microscopic layer of oil to be pumped between them to smooth out and speed up lock / unlock which has the added benefit of significantly increasing the service life. Preload and locking action is maintained for much longer and the cost of ownership of a Gripper diff is lower compared to other multi plate limited slip diff designs.
