For some time now, Uri Valdé had been saying that a good pinion differential runs much faster than an adjustable bearing differential – which makes sense, bacause there is no power loss, given that the ball bearings do not glide along the plates when accelerating; plus the traction is direct. Uri kept insisting and insisting until PN, the team that he forms a part of, finally decided to manufacture a few prototypes…. and the results we re immediately favourable.
After almost two years, this is the end result of the original idea of making a quality differential by way of pinion and crowns in order to prevent power loss in acceleration.
In TRP we had the priviledge of testing out first hand this new concept of differential with interchangeable crown and we were quite impressed; especially because of its power output, that, coupled with good grip will turn the MiniZ into a rocket.
The launching of this differential as well as the new adjustable motor mount should any day now. We will keep you informed.
