Who's using a Gripper diff?

Hi I am about to invest in one of these for my hill climb car (see my project thread )
If you are using one can you post your thoughts on them and if you have had problems what are the alternatives?
Ps I don't want to use a quaiffe type.

Cheers

we use a Quaiffe, but you dont want to know about them.
Hi I have used a quaiffe in my rally mini without problems so nothing against them.
I have been assured that the gripper is far better in terms of performance but have been told that the early ones suffered with reliability

No idea, on the Gripper one. But our Quaiffe is brilliant, My favorite mod we made to our track car.

Go for the gripper over the quaife if its for a hilclimb car. An ATB is a comprimise for road cars. The gripper is a competition plate diff so if thats what you intending to use the car for then its the diff you want.
