Q2 / Quaife noise ?

Hi

Has anyone noticed any change in noise between a standard diff and a Q2 / Qualife diff ?
I am noticing some clicking which I am thinking is the diff in my Quaife ATB diff...

Did you get the Quaife from us?

Are you getting the clicking going straight or on turning?

Who fitted it?

Howe did you shim the diff?

Yes, from you.
It was fitted by an engineer here in Ireland. I do not know how he did it to be honest.
The guy is know in car racing / tuning circles, so should be good.

Does it do it going straight of when turning?

To be precise:
It only happens when accelerating sharply, and only on straights, and is more prominent when going straight. I cant hear it when cornering. (Could be I am not cornering hard enough, but I don't know)

Our Q2 was a little grumbly. The Quaife is silent.

Sounds like it could be drive shafts, very difficult to pin it down without seeing the car

I let my mechanic worry about this. I assume it should be 75W90 ?
