Your 2017 911 can get on earlier than your M3, but for more reasons than just the weight distribution.

It seems like EuroPartsOnline is the US Dealer for Racing Diffs. They carry the M-Variable Clutch Packs it seems.

Looks like they still ship from Serbia. Might as well order directly from RacingDiffs and save a few bucks.

Are you sure? I went to RacingDiffs and it say 274,00 EUR? so about $320 shipped?

Jim Blanton. Do a bit of digging and you’ll find he is highly respected. Did an excellent job on my diff, converted it to a true limited slip setup and now the rear end is dead silent, smooth and utterly predictable. The whole ‘sharp edge’ of the rear end snapping out is long gone. Other rebuilders send their diffs to him. Give him a shout, he is filled with knowledge and can write pages and pages about any topic you might have questions on.

Ah, you're right - I just checked my statement - paid 318.99 shipped.

Either way, can't go wrong with either company! Supply quality parts. I have my stuff installed and should be taking it out for a spin soon

How did the rebuild go? I'm thinking of purchasing the Racing Diffs clutch pack for my rebuild as well.

You in NJ? My builder Billiam Mason did my install. My car is still up there as well

Went well! I just broke everything in this past weekend. My diff shop said everything went smoothly with the replacement rings/steels. Replaced my bearings with new timken bearings, and threw in the 4.10's.

The 4.10's make 6th gear pretty useful - but on the flip side, mpg has definitely dropped, haha.
