hey guys so i just bought a 1995 240sx S14 w=it has complete front and rear suspension upgrade as well as a R32 Lsd. i am planning on drifting the car alot:boink:, but i want a bit of feedback on these Lsd if they lock alot so i can use them for drifting. has anyone on this forum used them for drift events? and how was it compaired to a welded differential? should i just buy oem axles and buy a diff and have it welded? :duh: please give me your feedback.

If you have to ask.......

....chances aren't you're not experienced enough to know/notice a difference.

Go actualy drive your car at some events and see for yourself. If you still suck and youre convinced it's because the 'diff' I'll be more then happy to trade you my welded and axles for your set up.

^^ yup the complete suspension upgrade on need for speed. make sure you have the self locking hubs though first. go back there lock in the hubs and you got full lock.

I bought suspension upgrades for my R35 on my mobile drag racing game a few minutes ago...

But seriously...have you even driven with a welded diff? lol If so, throw that car around a corner (please be an open parking lot so we don't lose another S-chassis to another drift fanboi) and see how it handles. A lot of people prefer different diffs due to their style. Find yours.

R32 LSD pretty much means that it's a VLSD - Viscous Limited Slip Differential.

Depending on the mileage and previous abuse of the diff, it might lock up well enough for you to learn the basics, or it could essentially be an open diff. If you have locking problems, you can buy a new preload shim and have it installed, this will increase the amount of torque required to 'break' the connection between the two wheels thus making the diff 'lock harder' (in reality, it is harder to 'unlock').

If you want to get a welded, get a welded. I'd suggest you drive on one first, they are kind of weird, and more often than not, it seems that people with little to no experience with them tend to do something derpy the first the time the road is wet or covered with sand or whatever.

Or you can get a 'real' differential like a 1.5 way or 2 way clutch type. Having personally DD-ed Opens, 2-ways and Weldeds, my preferred setup is probably the 2-way, just because it's like an on-off switch when properly maintained.

Oh well, you really should search for more information next time.

My second 240 came with a welded diff from the previous owner. Sometimes fun, sometimes annoying. But yeah... What these guys said, you won't know till you try yourself (safety first)
