  • lsd time!

    I've decided to take the plunge and get an ATB lsd.
    My question is what's a reasonable price to have one fitted?

      Ahh nice. I'm going for a quaife. Was it a big improvement over standard?

          I have some decent brakes at the minute. Also have a rarb fitted and that made a massive difference. Hoping for the same type of feeling from the diff

            I've only ever driven these with a diff fitted so can't tell you how different it feels, but out of the VXR boys who have driven mine to compare it they say it is 'twitchy' compared to a standard car. It does tend to jerk a lot under acceleration but just takes some getting used to. You will love the power delivery though mate

              How twitchy are we talking because I reckon the standard car when you pushing on abit feels unsettled haha

                Put it this way a mate of mine had a 350bhp nurburgring with no diff. I let him drive mine and his arms were being tugged all over the place when he planted it

                I've heard it is the way they work when you put the power down, they just react differently but hug nicely in corners. Plus mine is quaife so will be different to yours mate

                  Yup I get what you mean, like torque steer but kind of violent when the wheels grip

                    Best mod money can buy imo, when I had my Astra I had one fitted at Halifax gearbox when I had the box done, they took the standard diff as payment for fitting the new one which I was happy about as I had no use for it.

                      If your on / off throttle in the corners it will be twitchy as the diff is moving power to the wheel with most traction when under acceleration power, if you keep changing throttle input mid corner that is what will give you that twitchy feeling as the power is being applied then taken away then applied etc etc. You need to apply a constant throttle mid corner and then power out of it.

                      With the standard diff the power goes to the wheel with least traction so mid corner you wouldnt notice it as much if you keep changing throttle position as the inside wheel will be spinning up and outside wheel will just continue rolling with cars momentum.

                      ATB diff shouldnt be too twitchy unless you literally going changing from full throttle to none. Try a plated diff and then you really will notice even a slight change in throttle pressure

                        Very insightful mate thanks! Do it make a difference in a straight line or just In the twists?
                        Plate diffs sound ermm... fun haha

                          Ahh good stuff. Yeah I'd go to halifax but I'd keep the standard diff. Can you remember a price to fit the lsd?

                            The diff is there to put power down to the wheel with most traction and really only comes into affect in corners. Personally with the plated version I dont notice much in straight line, might help a bit with torque steer thats about it. Plated variants are spot on, but are noisy and can be very harsh when cold. When you are in a car park or going round a tight bend at low speed and the car sounds like its falling apart with everyone around looking at you, can be a bit of a pain. But in the twisties, it is the dog nuts
