Chris, can you elaborate on that statement? I recently helped install a Wavetrac and it looked visually identical on the exterior to the Quaife unit, but of course I am no expert on LSD's and didn't crack it open. This interests me because I hear Wavetrac referred to as the "new Quiafe" quite a bit and would like to be informed if that is not true.

The people calling it the new Quaife are the ones that are selling the Wavetrack. I have not personally installed a Wavetrack but I have been told by others who have that the Wavetrack is a lot closer to the OBX than the Quaife.

I see. Very curious to see one dissected, then. Thanks for the commentary. Do you know if the Wavetrac is being made in China, like the OBX?

I have used it and it is does a pretty good job for the cost. It isn't perfect but it does work.

I am no expert at this, but looking at Wavetrac's website, i have the feeling it is a mix between a clutch type and helical type LSD...
They keep mentioning about the friction plate that keeps both wheels powered even if one wheel is off the ground. (from memory)

I am saying that I don't think that the wavetrac is near the LSD that the Quaife is, even at that price.

I am not all that sold on the OBX either. We run one in one of our shop cars and there are always axles issues with it. I am not saying there is any truth to this but what I have been told by other shops that have torn down both the Wavetrac and the OBX that they are very very similar inside. Again, I haven't seen any pictures, just conversations that I have had.

it is expensive considering it wouldn't hold up as well as the Quaife.
