    sorry for the late reply. you're welcome just enjoy them. a tornsen is a posi type carrier that uses gears instead of clutches to transmit power to the axles. it wasn't cheap but i'm so glad i bought it. installation was free since the gear was being changed. it is a detroit tru trac unit. it sure works nice when taking off hard with the front wheels turned. chatter is eliminated. now i have to stop the wheel hop taking off in a straight line.

    It allows the engine to get into the torque peak faster and really improves the acceleration. I used to work at Holley carb years ago. Wanted to start tuning EFI like I used to tune carbs. Bought the software to get access to all the parameters. Definitely get a tuner. I go thru let Mike take care of youur needs. The LiveWire is nice if u want to monitor PID's while u drive. If u don't like the cost the X3 is the way to go. Mike can do the tunes or if u want u can get the ProRacerPackage software and do it yourself. It will pay for itself after a few tunes.

    I'm running stock size tires and it drives like I am not using OD. I had a tornsen carrier put in at the same time the gears went in and the front gears had to be switched also. Don't remember what it all cost.
