Default Differential Options

I though I'd start a thread covering some of the diffs that we've all been researching.

Spool: Homebuilt, no differential, chain driven, cheapest way to go.
Transworks: Has reverse, inboard brake option, direct drive. $2295
Sand Bullet: Has reverse, inboard brake option, direct drive. $3995
Quaife CD Axle: Chain driven, reverse. $3195
Quaife POWERtec: Has reverse, direct drive (not shown on website). $4795
JEFFco Reverse Diff: Has reverse, chain drive. $3500
JEFFco Reverse Hub: Has reverse, chain drive, no diff. $2500
Roberto Gearbox: Econo unit for under 50HP. $1250
Roberto Gearbox: Direct drive for CVT. Live axle. $2000 - depending on options
Jaxsports Reverse Gearbox: Has reverse, chain drive. Available straight or 90 degrees. $2800

Any others? Post and I'll move the data into the first post, maybe we can get it added to a FAQ or made into a sticky.

Drakart listed on the bottom of the page for $3000 so I'm assuming you can buy it seperatley?

lemnad,
I thought of putting the Drakart in there, but wasn't able to get any info on it.
Also, Hawk Motorsports is a separate company from Drakart. If you get any info on either, please post it and I'll update the first post.

Thanks.

Nice thread diirk. Made it a sticky, will also work on adding a diff section to the links.

I think it would be a good thing to have a section just for sources. It could be seperated in to different categories.Drivetrain,suspension,and so forth.

Ive seen the Jeffco rearend and all I can say is that thing is a work of art,it seems pretty bulletproof to me.I believe all the internal gears are made of 300m and it turns like butter,no hp robbing resistance.I think one of the major mini builders has started using these or is in the process of starting to use them.

What about using a diff from a car, like a subaru diff, or something like that?
