Default OBX LSD carnage, time for Quaiffe

don't know what caused it, if its the broken axle or is the axle that went first.
yesterday I decided to take a couple of long autobahn runs after a while my car started vibrating like I have a flat so I pulled over to check it out tires and suspension is ok. continued to drive hoping to get home, a 300 km trip, I made it home ok.

all the bolts snapped that holds diff together, the thing thats wierd about it I removed the broken pieces without using a drill or tap, just my fingers. I can put it back together but don't think I can find these bolts in Germany. grade 12.9 allen. can hardly find grade 8 bolts here without ordering them for a specific car.
so I am thinking of ordering a quaiffe or Mfactory, but I am worried that the Mfactory is gonna be the same quality as the OBX for $300 less than a Quaffe. at the same time I need some DSS axles, will hit up Tuner toys first thing tomarow, hope he can get me these by the end of the week for less than his list price. man that over $1600 this ---- sucks. first race is april 30.

I am really undecided right now.
QUAIFFE is my number 1 choice, but I am sick of over priced parts that claims lifetime warranty and don't honor them. and from what I am reading Quaiffe is one.

Mfactory don't know much about them. don't wanna be the first to try it. everyone I know uses Quaiffe.

OBX is done in my book. even though I can repair and use the one I have. the fact is it broke.

which sponsor carries both these company products? also DSS. I need some level 2.9 axles

------- editing rules sucks.
I think I am gonna go with the Mfactory seems like best bang for the buck. the review I read may have been biassed but it seems like a well refined product.

I really would like a quaiffe but I am worried about their warranty issues. and compared to the price. Mfactory is the best right now. I read a review on H-T comparing all 3 and mfactory was nice. and claim to stand by their products. I will call before I place my order.

For the price MFactory seems a good choice but I heard alot of good things about Quaife. I heard that they stand behind there warranty.
