Short answer is no, even grippa diffs are expensive & i think you need to have a specail driveshaft made also, not sure about the quiaffe as it fits the clio/gtt box IIRC.
They really are awesome bits of kit, i had one in my old Rover tomcat, savage  :lol:  8)

Track & road alot, especially in the twistys as you don't loose traction, you have to keep your hands on the wheel though as it just pulls you round.. I miss my old Tomcat, 260lbft & 230bhp ATW @ 13psi, all  through the front wheels  8)

No good for drag really though

You will know about it if you spin the car, will rip your thumbs clean off.

They tend to follow any ruts in the road aswell, as Steve said two hands all the time.

Really depends on what you use the car for, can be a bit uncomfortable for normal everyday use.
