Cheers, looking forward to seeing just what the Wavetrac can do for the car and its propensity as standard to 'waggle its hips' on WOT ;)

Really gutted I couldn't get in on this at the moment :( House roof repairs getting in the way, not much I can do about that.

Well done on getting a few across the line and getting a discount. If there's ever another GB, I'll hope to be in a better position.

My 'stunt' 3.08 diff has arrived in Southampton and the garage team at Regal have apparently managed to work their way into the fiendishly complex puzzle crate (comprising many different formats of engineered wood composite, a scrap of HWWPe and quite a few too many pozi-drive screws) that I encased it in without going completely insane.

Next I guess they will be splitting it to free the open diff and sending that off to have the crown wheel mechanically extracted and converted into a bolt on type rather than welded. Shouldn't be too long now till the next piece in my upgrades puzzle will be be returning to me and putting into the stockpile of parts I've quietly been amassing

Finally got the Wavetrac diff and M4 LCA +TS fitted today at Regal :)

Initial impressions, both fantastic mods! When just driving around at slow speeds, neither is noticeable from a driving or sound perspective, which exactly what I wanted.

When pushing on though, the behaviour and characteristics are noticeably different and improved. Just for reference, I’m running standard wheels and fairly worn MPSS. Gone is that twitchiness when suddenly increasing speed, car feels so much more planted and just hooks up. Even in the wet, the car just deals with it and I felt much more confident giving it some. Braking feels considerably more controlled too, I found my car previously moved around a little when applying quite a bit of braking force.

The steering feels substantially more connected now, especially the responsiveness in the centre. Couldn’t say I noticed tramlining or needing to constantly make corrections to the steering. Of course this is still very early days and will be a little more adventurous over the days/weeks, but a very positive start.

Last but certainly not least, a big shout out to the team at Regal. Fantastic and knowledgeable bunch, can’t fault their service and wholly recommend :)

My freshly modified 3.08 arrived this morning in the OTT crate that I made for it :D

Haven't had a chance to open the crate yet as I've been hanging off a ladder most of the day fixing a roof leak while it hasn't been raining, then collecting my 2 year old son from my ex for the weekend. Might get a chance to open it up at some point this weekend if the little monster is being entertained by my 9 year old niece giving me some free time.
