We start with a new reinforced Speedway motors carrier housing and then install bearings, seals, a heavy-duty "Daytona" pinion support, a 1310-series yoke, and your choice of ring-and-pinion ratios. The 1310-series yoke is the correct size for many Ford applications with cups 1-1/16 inch in outside diameter and a span of 3-7/32 inch across.
Based off of the original limited-slip designs of the OEMs, these differential units provide the added benefits of millions of miles and decades of proven reliability. Speedway has taken this engineering to the next step in performance with increased clutch pressure and holding power, suiting it well for heavy-duty street car applications.

- Forged steel case
- Heat-treated spider gears
- Quiet operation, no clicking when disengaging for corners
- Spring-loaded clutch pack with improved grip over OEM designs
