Default Center Diff..

Just been playing around to see if there is a really simple way of getting a canter diff into a TT or MT.
I thought that we could use a standard front, rear diff housing.
So far I think that all it would need is a new belt, brake shaft, a top plate and 7 holes drilled into the base plate.
I will mark up a sheet of MDF with the hole locations and mount the diff housings and see what it looks like.
I may have got it wrong but it looks easy (doesnít everything before you get down to the detail)
I know that the model is not particularly clear but Iíve just done a couple of screen shots at the end of the day. Will post some clearer pic tomorrow if there is any interest.
Anyway, I will keep you posted.

Looks cool man. That would be a great option if you get it to fit.

Thats a cool idea. I've been trying to find a center diff and never though of using the front or rear one. I think this can work. Would be very nice mod. Huge improvment over the locked center.

great idea , that should keep a few things from breaking. looks like the shaft where the brake disks are is where the customizing will be. keep working on it. I will give my ideas also if I can.

I made a custom aluminum top plate for my XB.. fairly easy, again I think the shaft area is going to be the tough part.
