i think you mean "high ratio diffs" as opposed to "low ration diffs"?

needs pics as well, but looks like a good start.

so 'low ration diff' doesn't mean 'it eats few' ?

This is the place for Minker info mate  

Actually the Minker thing is differcult because it's what ever Geoff or his Wife wants it to be.

Geoff will call anything he considers special a Minker as "Minker" is actually something he & his wife made up.
There own word for something they consider special.

So you have a Minker surf board & so on.

They was stuck for a name, so to market a car called a Minker must have been a hoot for them.

The Scorpio 4x4 was actually sort of on par with your TT280 Sierra.

The Minker version was gonna have the VNT's & custom plenum making about 450bhp.

If ya think its wrong the edit and amend the wiki.. that's what wikis are about.  a combined effort ..

I intended it as a springboard to get interested parties HERE  just thought it needed some wikiaction

And yes my spiling is sheit!  I aint fik! just a bit dislyexic. Does not bother me, my brain cells work on more complex sh!t than spelling.

Wow you had a bad day  

Didn't mean to come over all negative if that's what you think.

I know it took up some of your time & it was good you did it.

Just saying the defo of the word Minker is as I said.

The car named Minker is as you say.

Oh I see someone has amended it.  

That's better, well done.

Add it to the wiki then   that's what wikining is all about. Everyone contributing.

Dave:  I ammended as sugested..

I just thinks it's good to have it there even if it's not full or complete. It backl links to the ford sierra wiki, and like wise the sierra wiki has a link to the Minker wiki.... and since the minker wiki links to FPUK.. Peeps may find us

Feel free to add to it

TT





I see somone has modded
