Lightened Suspension for the Lifted and Lowered RD1!

Finishing the design work for the RD1 CR-V Trailing Arms and a lift kit subframe cradle! 4″ of suspension lift without spacers and or lifting blocks while isolating a factory shock or Dual Reservoir Coil/Shock will be a nice added benefit for the CRV community along with some mods for the front suspension aswell offering the same additional lift as the rear.

Following a project that has been sought after for so long we are finally able to integrate a factory Honda prelude rear braking system into a trailing arm that is 48% lighter than the factory crv trailing arm and offers more suspension travel and geometry than ever before. Based heavily on our V-1.5 all wheel drive trailing arm conversion these new trailing arms will allow factory fitment to Prelude Disc Brakes and aftermarket Braking systems designed off of the Honda prelude. The front suspension will feature many advanced characteristics allowing for a wider front stands in a pre runner style for the trail allowing humans to have a wider stance and wider tires without compromising the ability to turn on 33’s. For the non lifted Honda CRV enthusiast’s these trailing arms will also be available to allow you corrected rear suspension geometry so that you may lower your vehicle with the ability to control adjustible trailing arm length and track width aswell following our original design. Continuing to push ahead and I cannot wait to show you all more progress! Like/comment/share

Racing Diffs Progressive Limited Slip Differential Kits Available!

Building performance from a differential that has had no aftermarket support has proven to be task attempted by few and achieved by even less. Never before seen today is the introduction of Racing Diffs Progressive CRV/Element/Crosstour rear Limited Slip Differential!

Conversion sets are made from high quality tool steel which is heat treated using argon gas specifications to achieve maximum precision. For all friction components they use the same materials as used in our LSD clutch sets. All parts are fabricated according to n7 quality standards.

We had lots of questions about what is the difference between our product and Phantom grip and answer is that this is completely different system. While phantom has radial channel and relays only on high rated springs, Racing Diffs product has high rated springs to creating preload using a dynamic lock from ramp angles allowing a progressive lock without stuttering or jolting the rear differential into lock slowly transitioning into full traction.

Racing Diffs uses a friction shims between gears and plates to protect the gears from being chewed up by constant friction to the From our experience in producing LSD clutch plates, we used the same materials for friction shims which gives them high resistance and longevity, so there are no metal shavings.

They use only top quality tool steel, heat treated and nitrated to achieve the highest quality surface finish possible giving their products very high durability and longevity. The Racing Diffs Progressive LSD has proven itself in many arenas from hill climb, circuit, drag and autocross, offering their customers better performance, reduced wear, increased durability and more consistent lap times than their competitors while aiding in setting new personal bests for our customers.
