They are designed with a torque bias of 5:1 this means that if one wheel loses traction then the wheel with the most grip can receive five times as much torque as the wheel that is slipping. However, five times zero is still zero, so all these helical LSD's work best when both wheels are'planted' and some traction is still available on the slipping wheel.
In practice this is rarely a problem as there is always some'drag' on the slipping wheel, however some drivers expertly use left foot braking to partially lock the spinning wheel. Helical LSD's work especially well when combined with modern anti-lock braking systems.
Applies equal rotational speed to both wheels. Distributes torque according to available traction.Minimum servicing compared to plate type LSD's. Controlled power on launches and drifting slides. Optimum gear tooth design and oil distribution. Gears and Body Manufactured from 8620 material. Direct replacement for stock differential.
This is a Torque Biasing Helical Gear LSD. These are generally regarded as a nicer road LSD as they have little side effects during normal driving (unlike plate type LSD's that constantly resist differing wheels speeds during cornering) They do not require a special oil. We recommend that the axle oil is changed after the first 500 miles as initially they can create swarf - this is normal and will reduce with use.
