I try to find, but info not accurate
+400 nm? but front getting only 33% power
Also depend gear driving
Depends tyres using- big tyres or have grip
i suggest use rear diff for buggy

Do you want to use the differential?

If you plan to use it then what power do you want to put through it?

I'm not familiar with the differential, but I think it attaches o the engine block - can you mount it correctly if you want to use it?

What about an Audi Quattro rear differential?

May still have issues with power/torque handling though I guess.

Itís to be used under a 24v Cosworth engine so I can mount it in its original position but rear engined (I know all about the diff rotation issue before I take that much further I was wondering if itís strong enough)
Iíll be useing an mt75 4x4 box so it will retain the original torque split of approx 35%.

You can buy a strengthening plate for the front diff to stop the case splitting, mainly used for GpN rallying where stock trans parts had to be used. BARA, DOME and the like will be able to supply
