heVier pressure plates will mAke up the diff. CC has had similar failures to all theebay garbage. springs falling out and whatnot.

btw, Spec uses plastic throwouts as well.

Any NVH increase with the GNT diff and torque tube mounts? I could use a more firm and little bit more whine in the car.

The GnT mounts are great I didn't notice any vibration or noise with the diff mounts and tt mounts, the only thing I notice is a huge reduction in drive line slop. My old mounts were totaly shot.

Well went to the big TSQ 14 had a great time, took the Starion to the track and ran a 13.74 I was running 17psi spun quite a bit and shifted 3rd early it was the only run I got.



My run starts at 1:24 and there are runs from Ryan, Greg, Phil and Tye in this video.
