Oh...And believing and wanting to believe...
One of us in this conversation has driven the Esprit with 3 different differentials (ZF clutch type LSD in the X180-R on street and track, Quaife ATB in my SE on street and track, and original open differential on street and track) back to back at the same time and place... And one of us hasn't
Some of us here have been in the Lotus community for at least 17 years, and have helped or tried to help others. While one of us apparently joined very recently with a cryptic introduction. I'm not giving advice, I'm giving an opinion with background. Take it or leave it. Believe it or not, your choice.
I was specifically asked in a conversation about replacing the differential in a Sport 300. The owner, informed me that his personal Sport 300 had an open differential, and was looking to install a Quaife to re-gain the LSD, which was missing (damaged or never installed)
Really doesn't matter, it's a moot argument, since the Lotus Compact Torque Biasing Differential is not available, except from a wrecked Sport 300.
