For road car I would go with a torsen LSD and for a track car go for a plate diff.

Plate type the two main ones available (not counting suzukiRD) are Gripper and Bacci, wasn't overly impressed with
the construction of the bacci one and damn expensive.
Plenty of rally people using the gripper diff, have heard good things and the price is excellent.

As for Torsen style, most popular would be the Mondena Engineering diff from Oz, he doesn't always have stock,
sometimes waits until he has orders for a few before doing a small batch.

Bali has some for sale, seem to be well made.

Google the various types of Lsd's to get an understanding of the merits of each type, there is also a viscous but are
extremely rare.

Modena's website - http://www.modenaengineering.com.au/

Rarely they come up second hand on redlinegti.com. You could also try a WTB there. You are looking at around US$1300 new and maybe $900 second hand. I had one for many years, they were fantastic. Sold it on about a year ago for a plate diff due to changing to a 1.6 gearbox (unfortunately modena didnt make the torsen for that box otherwise that is what I would use).

Oz?, what the wizzard? all phone numbers in Oz/Australia start with + 61 :razz:

Last time I emailed Frank the current price was AU$1240, you will have to check for stock though.

Just tested the torsen diff that I got from 'Bali' today, knocked 1.2 secs off my best time lap instantly,
so far so good :mrgreen:

Edit, Grape you beat me to it again....

How about for a road car and 1/4mile track? Still a plate diff? Is this the same as a phantom grip?

I used a torsen for road and drags (now use plate but only because there wasn't torsen option). I think they would be better option as plates wear out. No, plate diff are different to phantom grip. Google images of plate diff and phantom grip. Lots of plates with grooves that bind together to lock up diff. Phantom grip is two blocks. Torsen is gear arrangement so no real wear issues per se.

i really like torsen from balli in my street car, but for rally plated is much better.. we use protlum suspension and car is not "hard enough" so torsen don't work that good as plated while going in harder corners or while cornering over crest..

it's still good, just not that good like plated..
