Cusco LSd

Anyone know what the difference is between a 1 way and a 2 way LSD? Anyone have a non standard one fitted to theirs. What exactly does the diff do?

lets put this in perspective... Monster Mats 500+bhp car is still running the standard torsion differential.... :wink:

all cars have a differential.... it's a LSD ( limited slip differential) thats important in sports cars....

2way is for track only.... actually supposed to be dangerous on the road... :shock:

all in all the torsion diff works very well, wouldn't think anyone would change it unless it was damaged or they had more money than sense...lol :lol:

No just curious as i thought an after market diff would be cheaper than a brand new factory replacement

There very noisy too. Bang and rattle when going slow and parking.
Very good for diffing though

Same as Tez. cusco 2way. noisy allright but is a lot tighter than a standard diff. all depends on what way you like your car to handle... the difference between a 1.5 and a 2 way lsd is that a 1.5 locks up only under acceleration while a 2 way locks up on both acceleration and braking. thus can be very dangerous for an inexperienced driver in a rwd car :!: or more fun for someone who is more experienced :twisted:
I BEG TO DIFF-ER!!
