    Silver ceramic coating is meant to cut down radiated heat by about 30%. I haven't run mine yet so I don't really know what that means in practice but I've also gone with protecting nearby components...

    Yes, one of the disadvantages of the Ram is the giant backbone of the chassis. It impinges on the interior from front to back. I've considered replacing the tunnel with something smaller and...

    Either way involves cutting because the diff bolts are under the boot floor under the fuel tank. Having said that, there may be room to do it through the wheelarch once the driveshaft and (possibly)...

    I'm guessing that they have found that this design will 'wear in' to conform to the disc surface quicker if you start with a smaller area. The customer will not notice the new pads as much.

    I'm not Italian but I think it says

    “We inform you that the chamfer is required for increasing the comfort while braking.
    It is not related to a change in performance or early pads wear.”

    In theory, the helical (AKA Torsen) diff should give a nicer drive - no induced understeer and no lockup. I haven't driven one so I don't know in practice.

    Surely it is the lengthened clutch release arm that is the problem.

    Ah! a cable operated clutch. Lengthening the actuator arm will make the clutch lighter but it will also reduce the travel. This may be your problem.

    Really need a bit more info about the set-up that you have. There is no 'right' combination of parts for a custom driveline like yours. Either:

    The first simple test is to buy a length of hose and attach the servo to another car - see it the brakes feel any different.

    Many diesel cars have a vacuum pump built into the alternator; so there's another idea.

    A hydraulic release bearing itself will not make any difference; it's purely down to the ratio (area) between the two cylinders whatever shape they might be. If the HRB happens to have a greater...

    I can't see why warming the brake fluid up by a few degrees would cause the brake fade that you are seeing. Maybe it's a symptom of air in the system?

    The diff may appear locked because of the preload; you'd need a decent size bar on it to get it to shift, particularly on the bench.

    You can get the diff re-ratioed to a higher ratio such as 3.07...

    You don't need the header tank to be at the highest point, you just need the filler to be there along with a take-off for the pipe to the header which can then be anywhere you like.

    This is expected behaviour for an LSD - the diff locks, the tyres break traction and you (probably) get some oversteer; it's not related to preload. Or did I miss your point?
