Default Torq-Masters Industries - Locking Differentials

Hi All,



We are happy to announce our TORQ Locker for Subaru R-160 differentials are in production and will be released soon.



Detailed fitment information will be available on our website.



We have 2 R-160 TORQ Lockers, the 1 Bolt and the 5 Bolt. The TORQ Locker will only fit in open differential cases.



The TORQ Locker is an "automatic drop-in mechanical locker" or as some call it a "lunchbox Locker" because they are small enough to fit inside a lunchbox.



We will post updates here. Please feel free to talk and ask tech questions as well! We are happy to support the forum!

We are still in our first production run, should be wrapping up this week, then off to heat treat. HT can take 4 to 10 days depending on what's in front of us. Because of the HT variable, we can't set a hard date for release.



Those that have asked to join our email notification list will be updated a day or two in advance, so they can set a calendar reminder for when we go live. I have more emails on our wait list than kits in production - so we will likely sell out quickly.



Second and third production runs are running right after this one.



These production runs are for the 5-bolt open R-160. The 1 bolts will be further down the line.



I setup a Product Developer Thread on the forum now that we are a supporting company. Hopefully i see email notifications and can respond in a timely manner.

No I mean like literally time, as in 2am, 3pm etc.. She was talking about more people to email than lockers available, so like if it's a "they're available starting midnight on such and such date" thing it sounds like I may be out of luck if I go to order one at 8am the following morning. I figure every website is different as far as how it works when a new product is added.

We have to take into consideration international orders in different time zones, so release time is TBD. Likely it will take a couple days to sell out.
