Re: 3.2 V6 Blown Diffs
The big killer is axle hop.
Being an ex-tech, I saw a few and it was mainly when you slam the accelerator, if one wheel spun, it would wear away at the planetary gear shaft and eventually you would get a fair bit of knocking on overrun. In that case, if you could catch it early enough, you could replace the planetary gears or fit a Q2 diff. But if you feel the wheel bouncing when you tramp it, back of quick because rapid successive action the tyre gripping and breaking traction would be like hitting the planetaries with a cold chisel. It's a drawback of high powered front wheel drive.
Come on Alfa, let's get back to rear wheel drive like a true sporting brand should.
