Anyone purchased this one? Hope he's fixed the wrong orientation of the gears inside! Apart from that problem, the one I got previously is doing well.

The sun gears can't be swapped around. The way the suns are arranged, forces them inwards under acceleration, putting massive pressure on the thin star shaped spring washer retainer. Mine, which was 2nd hand had the star friction fused onto one of the suns. It was obviously copied from another make of car, where the diff case faces the opposite way to ours. Works beautifully now that its been modified.

I'm sure others are thinking it but won't say it, however I'm not really known for being a diplomat.

Why would anyone want to buy a 'defective' lsd, or in the least, pay $800 for one that you still have to pay someone else to modify?

This is in no way to bash the OP's sale, but the stupidity of those who made the diff in the first place.

If you're doing something for commercial sale, get it right the first time! Just ask Apple!

I have actually bought one of these, not in the car yet, I have had my race engineer mentor to have a look at it and confirmed that the gears wind into towards each other and that is how it is supposed to work. he commented that the workmanship and finish was good quality.

Just waiting for my dmwdave billet flywheel to turn up before it goes in the car.

PBC137,

I think that You absolutely right. :idea: Nobody need any fake product feedback here.
This LSD is not worth one penny if not woking well...

but fortunatelly it's doing it! =)

I'm absolutely recpest Popeye also, but I don't understand the problem.
We made many of this torsen units, they used in mk1(shorter)-mk2-mk3 all over the world from Sweden to India.
We got experiance with professionals on public road, snow rallying, tarmac,
circuit race....
None has negative effect, all of them like how it works.
Never was any problem on both of free running or aceleration load phase.

I also have two swift gti on rally prep, they did many races from 2005 without any leak.

So I'm waiting for your ideas, honestly.
(sorry for my poor english)

Hi,

I got one made for a Volvo 300 series gearbox.
I asked my mate to try it as my kit car won't be on the road for many years. He loves it and it is in a road car.
Balli is using it in his rally car and it works fine so I'm sure road car use will last many years.

Cheers
Atchi

Quick update, I have run it in two events so far, knocked 1.2 sec off my lap times immediately on a 3km track compared to my open diff, it gives a slight tug on the wheel when the power comes in, really easy to drive with, you can feel it mid corner, instead of running wide it pulls in towards the apex.
I'm not sure if the diff locks up faster enough for quick transistion events like autocross, would be fine if you keep the power on though.

I have 4 more events until I pull the box apart and I will check for wear then, so far so good though.

Hi Dattman,
Thank you for your objective reply!
I'm waiting for further news.
I hope you feel it was worth the money.

I have one of these LSD's sitting in the workshop waiting to go into my GTi.

I can vouch for "balli". I had no problems with the buying or freight for my diff. Arrived in good time, was well packaged and price wise was more than reasonable. :thumbsup:
Will post up when i get my gearbox back in my car about how the LSD goes.
