SE5spd, do you have any updates as to the condition of your LSD?

Also, has anybody tried the Nismo GT Pro Carbon?

Default LSD install

Iím going to put a Quaife diff in my 350Z Nismo, and Iíve got a couple of questions for you guys. I planned on getting new bearings for the new diff and leaving the old ones on the old diff. I plan on using the original gears. I am wandering about re-shimming the gears. Do you guys get away with just throwing a new diff in there and letting it roll, or should I go get a full set of shims before taking this thing apart? The situation Iíd like to avoid is taking this thing apart and then having to go order more parts or a special tool. Should I get new clips, seals, or what ever? I already have new mounts for the pumpkin. This car has 30,000 street miles and 3 track day events on it, and no apparent problems. Any insight from you guys that have done this before would be really helpful.

Thanks

You need proper shims.

Back from the dead.


Quick question, are the 1.5 way LSD still agressive under decel? Is it possible to induce oversteer when off the gas with a 1.5 way LSD? Also just to confirm when you adjust an LSD via the clutch discs is all you are you doing is adjusting the delay the LSD goes into full lock (not the amount it locks)? Thanks.

Could be depending how you tune it.
Yes.
No.

Your ramp up timing is done by center pressure ring springs.
