We could shorten it to that. It's got a nice ring to it.

You cant tell any difference between stock and delrin for the diff. They were just harder to install, tightened the shifting up considerably and eliminated all wheel hop.

I was just saying that my diff was quiet. If your diff is already crunchy, im sure you would have some NVH with delrin. Mine was minty smooth even with the OS Giken clutch type diff, could barely tell it was in there until you cranked on it where you could break traction.

Seriously considering swapping the diff from the 10AE to the MSM. Discuss.

you'd have to do the whole rear, not just the diff, since it uses different axles and I believe uprights too

Uprights? That's a new one I haven't heard before. Whaddya mean uprights? I was thinking about grabbing a 4.1 torsen and swapping just the diff internals in the 10AE for now, then I have them. I was annoyed with the gearing on the MSM and really prefer the gearing on the 10AE.

More diff research to be done... And $$ looking too.

OK no more side projects. Lol

Yeah, SUPER nice. Not at all what I need, it's too clean and too new and too expensive. But awesome. Price seems pretty good too, bummer it doesn't have a hardtop.

HOLY **** IT HAS THE GIFT SET.

Too bad it's not totaled. Otherwise I'm sure it'd be in my driveway by now.

hahaha

but seriously, I dunno if its just me, but I drove a 20k mile miata before and it felt so much nicer than your typical miata. like 50% less creaks/rattles/random noises, so much "together", so solid feeling, just simply awesome.

Weirdly different from a hopped up high mile miata, which also feels solid and together, but different feeling altogether

Should have it there Monday. Course, that's what I said last Monday. Hoping to be able to pull the whole assembly tomorrow after work if I don't get stuck there late.
