locked diff hey! well , avoid tight cornering such as small round-a-bouts ond car parks, as the inner wheel trys to turn at the same speed as the outer wheel , it will skip and shuuder the diff. this may cause an axle to sheer off at the diif center. But other then that they can get anoying when you just want to drive normal, which Sometimes can happen. best part is good burnouts , a real crowd pleaser. goodluck.

great for the racetrack, no good for the road. get and LSD if you intend to drive around town. the holden LSD is ok but won't stand up to a lot of thrashing. but i've heard the new KAAZ lsd's are good, they apparently behave much like a detroit locker in many ways, the slip when your off the power but lock up real quick when you nail it. depending on how you arrange the clutch packs you can set it up for either race or road use etc. unfortunatly i haven't found a good supplier here (NZ) who has the KAAZ centers cause i wanna fit one to my might VN v6 manual:yeah:

If your after a kaaz diff, PM enhancedss, he may be able to sort that out for you.

And yes, KAAZ centres are great if you plan on burnouts, doughnuts and the like, but only if your going to get the full use of them, otherwise a good holden LSD will do fine. If you manage to blow that, then go the kaaz

On the subject of LSD's and Diff lockers...When you spin the wheel axel on a LSD does the oposite wheel axel spin the same direction as the side you are turning or does it still spin opposite dirrection. I was told my new diff is a LSD, but upon spinning the wheel axels it does what I just stated and spins opposite. At first I thought it wasnt LSD but then I realized if they both span the same direction then the diff would be locked woudn't it?

On an lsd the wheel should spin in the same direction as the one you are turning. If it doesnt then either you have been ripped off or the clutches are stuffed.
