Question Differential cooling options?

Did anyone upgrade their differential cooling system or seen any options available? Any supercharger guys or track junkies that think it is/was necessary?

Thx.

i have thought about it BUT..... all day track sessions in high temps and im not experiencing any issues....... Think the cooling fins seem to be offering enough cooling.

I dyno'd my car like 2 weeks ago and got to 357bhp, which was very surprising. Now in April I would like to put CSL airbox, Schrick camschafts and Eisenmann Race on the car, together with a new ECU mapping of course, and should get to around 380-390bhp. My mechanic said that I should perhaps look into differential cooling options, because it's one of the most critical part on the car with additional HP. Does not mean that the exisiting cooling is not good enough, just that we should check it.

PS: this was all in means of heavy track use and "endurance racing" (30min+)
