    I would be interested at the right price. Why didn't you install it, Gerry?

    AFAIK, they are available new from your favorite WaveTrac dealer. The group buy was for a reduced price. Dunno what the going rate is nowadays but IIRC, retail is $1395?

    I've been intending to, but just haven't made it up to College Station to hang with the Jack-Man. Hopefully will get up there soon. I don't know what the price would be, have to think about that. Hadn't seriously thought of selling it before.

    They were running a special at SEMA last year but I don't remember what the price was. I know it included shipping. I will check it out again this year. of course that won't be until next November. I'll post again before I go if anyone wants me to check anything out for them. I will also have a few extra passes if anyone is interested in going. The first week of November in Vegas. It's always a blast and a car guys Mecca.

    Let me know, Gerry. I'm down the street from you in River Oaks area. Anyone have any feedback on their LSD installed? I like going sideways, curious to hear how the car feels doing so.

    Re: group buy - Wavetrac differentials for w124

    To be honest, it will probably be cheaper to get one direct from WaveTrac than I'd sell mine for. Jono may also have an extra unit for sale. I know he bought a number of them including a couple of extras.

    Give 'em a shout , here's their site still showing 500E application: http://www.wavetrac.net/application.htm

    Last I checked back in September last year they were on back order . I believe this group buy cleaned them out but should be in stock now.

    If you like to drive hard the difference is night and day. Normal driving upto 3/4 throttle , off the lights, you can certainly feel it bite. As for going side ways and tire smokin' stuff....sure but you'd need to defeat ASR . IMO , LSD and SA brakes are the best upgrades you can do to add to that great driving experience with these cars.

    @gerry, when you come over, and if you have time , we'll borrow Martin's to hoon around in so you'll feel the difference.

    OK, sounds good. I'll have the day Sunday May 17 free, it looks like. Rest of the trip is going to be tight, though I'll be in London through Friday May 22.

    Re: group buy - Wavetrac differentials for w124

    Little bump, does anyone know if Wavetrac has these in stock?

    I'm shopping around for one of these for my E500, but if we have enough interest, perhaps someone (US-based) could arrange for yet another GB at reduced prices? :P

    No they are not stocked at wavetrac. If you need them and if Leistung is out of stock you will need a 4-6 week lead time to place your order.


    I believe Leistung still has a few in stock but if push comes to shove a reorder can be done.

    I'd be surprised if there was enough retail demand to generate sufficient orders for a reduced buy in...:-/

    Re: group buy - Wavetrac differentials for w124

    And one more question for the experts out there...

    Will this differential fit on a 3.27 210mm ring and pinion set? It seems some other doffs won't clear this ratio.

    Edit-guess not. Found info in previous post. Darn

    If WaveTrac is out of stock, do they have any plans for another production run (assuming full price, no discount)? If they are out of stock, that sucks, as Dana still owes me a unit that he conveniently forgot to send. (And also forgot to return the stock parts I sent for R&D.)

    Should be identical. I'm not aware of any changes but you could always contact Wavetrac directly and ask.

    I thought it was a limited production run for the group buy and shortly thereafter, but I guess I was mistaken. Interesting and good to know.
