R.T. Quaife Engineering, Ltd. is a British manufacturer of automotive drivetrain products. It designs and manufactures replacement gearboxes and gear sets, some of which are for four-wheel drive systems.
Quaife's signature product is its line of automatic torque biasing differentials, a form of limited slip differentials that employ helical gears rather than clutch mechanisms that are controlled either mechanically or by computers. These differentials are usually available as aftermarket items, but for some models are specified by automobile manufacturers as OEM equipment.
The company was founded in 1965 by Rod Quaife and now run and owned by Michael Quaife (Technical Director) and his sister Sharon Quaife-Hobbs (Financial Director). Rod's son, Phil Quaife and Sharon's son Adrian Quaife-Hobbs are both professional racing drivers.
The 2006-2010 Chevrolet Cobalt SS w/G85 option features an optional Quaife ATB Limited Slip Differential and revised suspension geometry to reduce torque steer.
