    R8 RWD conversion 2016-

    Hi guys!

    I know it's possible to do RWD conversions on the previous generation R8 and Gallardos. But how is it with the new ones? Is it possible to do it as easy as before or are you going to have problems with the electronics or stuff like that?
    Have anyone done it?
    Have been searching online for a while without any luck.

    Would like to have a RWD R8 but the market with good spec R8 RWS over here in Europe are not so good ATM, especially not in Sweden.


    Best regards,
    Alexander

    We can supply you with the hardware, that is the easy part.

    You will need someone to code the electronics to RWD.

    Okey! What systems will need to be coded? Can a ”regular” tuner manage this?
    The only physical work that’s needed are to take out the driveshaft, diff and front axles and install the new hardware right?

    Okey thanks!

    What’s the price of the hubs and how much for shipping to Stockholm, Sweden?

    Bump!

    So what I understand the differential is electronic in the gen 2 and it can send up to 100% of the power to the rear. Does anyone know if it’s possible to make it rwd with just coding?
