    Wavetrac LSD Now Available!

    I've posted this elsewhere, but I recognize not everyone is registered on the same forums. No, I do not work for them; it's just nice to know that the Quaife is not our only option.

    Hello Nathan,
    I am following up on the status of the Wavetrac 2014+ Fiesta ST application; is it still slated for release this May in the United States? The Wavetrac facebook page lists the following information:
    56.309.145WK FORD FIESTA ST180 (IB6)
    Any information would be greatly appreciated!
    Thank you,
    RKTFiST

    RKTFiST,
    Yes they are ready!
    Here is a link to order (we are still adding info to Wavetrac.net as we speak):
    VW Performance - Autotech Sport Tuning: Wavetrac Differential Ford Fiesta ST180 IB6
    please cut and paste the link if it doesn’t work.
    Thanks,
    Nathan

    I love that it addresses the traditional Torsen shortcomings. Any idea what an average installation price would be?

    Nice. Good to have more options. Now have to wait for the price to come down on them

    That's pretty much the same price as a Quaife. I doubt the price will come down much and after you factor in the installation cost even if it drops $100 that's a drop in the bucket.

    I paid $750 ages ago for the Quaife for my Scirocco Mk1's 4K transmission. That's a very popular differential size compared to what's in our Fiesta STs. I honestly don't ever see it below $850.

    Too bad this wasnt sometime of factory option because it would of been a cheaper option than the aftermarket once you figure the complete install cost

    This! I love that there are a few mechanical slips available for the Fiesta, but installing one seems like a pain. I'd be able to do it, but time is what I usually don't have.

    It would be awesome if Ford would make some kind of deal with Wavetrac & have them install the mechanical slips in the factory. Kind of like the old Mazdaspeed Protoge & their Tochigi Fuji Sangyo KK Super limited-slip differential combo. But yeah. I'm asking for too much. I should be tarred & feathered for even thinking of such nonsense.

    Maybe in the future this will be an option.
