As part of the Lucas Oils UK Drift Team’s preparations for the 2013 season, the team removed the rear differential as part of its planned maintenance routine. This unit usually performs under extreme pressure, coping with over 1000bhp during most outings.

The unit was stripped and – unexpectedly – found to have no wear issues or damage at all. The condition was found to be almost as new. More >
