Lsd group buy thread

Copied from the other thread so I can manage the information: https://www.1addicts.com/forums/show....php?t=1822612

************************************************** ******

I am looking to organize a group buy for Limited slip differentials for the EXX chassis. A WTB post came up and it seems like there may be enough interest to make this happen. Please comment below and I will add your name to the list. I can send the info to some vendors and get pricing info! Be sure to include information like whether or not you want the complete pumpkin for those of us with welded ring gears, just the differential unit for people with bolted setups, final driver, and metal plate, helical, etc.

If you are unsure about what you need, post your year make and model and we can help you identify what you need. Here are some resources for reference:

Which models came with which style differential

Since this is a welded diff, I need the whole pumpkin right? So what is the solution in this case?

Welded = entire pumpkin. But, I've already sent the estimates in to the guy so now it depends on stock levels for who gets what.

I messed up and should’ve asked for a full pumpkin so I won’t be able to use mine unless you can get them to change my order.

No clue, haven't heard back from the guy yet. He didn't say there was a minimum order number, just that he needed to know specific counts to see if they even had enough stock to support it.

Honestly it's not looking good, I left a message for him on 6/29 as a follow up to the data I sent on 6/17, and still haven't received a response. Hopefully he reaches back out and at least gives us a solid yes or no so we're not left hanging.

Sounds like we're better off just ordering them ourselves from a vendor of choice.

have you contacted Mfactory directly or just a vendor? Maybe contacting them directly we could be more lucky. I think we are a respectable number of people interested on an expensive product ==>would be a real pity if each of us will buy it on our own

Hopefully we can get an official no at least. Haven't been driving my E82 lately so the wait hasn't bothered me.

I went through mfactory and they got me in touch with their biggest vendor. Then that vendor got me in touch with the head sales manager that specifically handles group buys. Sorry, trying not to name anyone here so people don't flood the guy's email/number with elementary questions.
