I know this doesn't help your group buy, Josh, but I will be pigeon-holing some pennies for one of these in the future. I need a TBD for my track car, but being newly married (even though my wife encourages my car cravings) we're still figuring out finances and stuff. It may be a little while before I can purchase one, but I am deffinitly interested. You da man.

Josh, I would also be interested (although I just got the Quaife!). Sounds like this would be better all-weather diff, would definitely make some difference w/the driving I do.

We all appreciate the hard leg-work on this.

same here. figure by the time these are ready i'll be yanking my transmission to replace the clutch anyway.

exactly how much is involved with installing or removing the Diff once you get the transmission out?

i'm toying with the idea of picking up another transmission and sending it out to get built, you think this would be a part i could do myself when i get the built tranny back or something i should send with the transmission and have installed while they're at it?

If you can take your time it's not too bad. 2 winters ago I pulled the trans, replaced the synchros/blocking rings and had the stock diff welded. I used Josh's MTX rebuild/Quaife install video and the clutch one. This was the first trans I had ever pulled and the first time I had ever opened one up. If this instal is similar to the Quiafe then the only part that may be difficult (just cause they take tools I don't have) is the shiming of the diff and using press to remove and put on the bearings.

Its harder to yank the tranny then it is to rebuild it. Go online to shonut and get the video and installation kit, it has the shims, bolts and bearings.The only special tool is the shim selector tool, you can buy one, rent one or use solder to ge the thickness of the shim that need to install.
I installed a quaife this summer, not hard at all.

sweet. i wont get to do any of this till after i get married in vegas and move into a house and out of this god forsaken apartment.

I got Josh's page bookmarked and a running list of all the stuff i want to order from him, along with lurking around the parts for sale threads and ebay for MTX's and SHO engines in AZ and CA i can buy when i get somewhere to put it.

Is this still active? I'm so on the fence about this; I want one so badly for the MTX Vulcan, mostly just because I want the tranny to last as long as possible and I have plans for more power down the road, but I'm concerned about daily driveability and $1300 is just a lot of money, especially considering that finding tranny parts down the road when the rest of it goes is going to be problematic, to say the least.

Is there a fluid recommendation for this yet? Is Redline D4 atf still the stuff of choice?

Yes, basically the answer is to use the factory spec'd fluid. We are still waiting for answers on some of the more exotic Redline fluids like the the high temp and Shockproof stuff.

So:
Dextron III - yes
Dextron IV - yes
Redline D4 - yes
Redline High-Temp ATF - probably (since it appears to meet DIII specs)
Redline Heavy Shockproof - no

Yes, we are in the final negotiations over price (they say there is a price increase etc.). We have been trying to include/link an ATX diff into this run, to help pricing for both, but unfortunately that has been delaying the process.

I would strongly recomment against any of the Redline Shockproof fluids in the MTX-IV unless you are absolutely sure the synchro blocker rings are unlined (all Brass), and even then, using these fluids is a crapshoot for a street driven car, as shifting is going to be difficult until the fluid is up to temperature.
