Although the viscodrive is sealed from new, I was wondering if anyone has ever tried to change/ uprate the vc fluid, bara motorsport can change vc fluid for different applications, but has anybody on the forum tried this.

Never heard of anyone doing it - the standard unit seems to be pretty effective (and actually more effective than a Quaife in some circumstances)

I bought one years ago to do the very same thing but, as far as I could see, there was no way to open it.

Visco perfect solution for road use. Quaiffe ATB diffs can be a bit hairy on the road.

I see. But can the grale unit be fitted to the Coupe driveshaft?
