Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but many are counting the cost of buying cheap imitations of the Quaife ATB Differential!
The Quaife Automatic Torque Biasing Differential has seen tremendous success since its initial introduction in the 1980’s. Continually refined and now available in over 400 different applications, the ATB has also been chosen and trusted by the world’s largest car manufacturers for use in their high performance model lines.
Along with its robust nature and the transformation it has on vehicles it’s fitted to, it’s no surprise there are a growing number of imitation products that have popped up within the marketplace over the last few years.
While some have been swayed by tempting sticker prices, and even references to the Quaife ATB, what’s clear from speaking directly to customers is the poor quality of these imitation products. Although Quaife are more than aware of our competitors, people’s concerns became evident at the recent Autosport International Show, held at Birmingham’s NEC.
The Quaife stand received a lot of interest from show-goers, both for our transmissions and differentials. What became clear to us, particularly during the public days, were the number of visitors who raised concerns over the quality standards of rival ATB products. The team heard accounts of diffs not standing up to power, reliability issues, and for those with experience of installing diffs in their vehicles, a less effective set-up. Some of these differentials have short warranties, while others are made cheaply using lower grade materials in places as far away as China!
