Stu, did you ever measure the breakaway torque with that plate order?
For you guys that have upgraded the stock rear diff with the Nismo 8kgfm or 12kgfm plate kit would you recommend it for a street driven car?
I'm looking at ordering a few bits & seeing as though its still only £125 I was going to go for the 8kgfm version.
Or as my car will be 90% street driven will I be better just re-ordering the stock plates/shims to tighten it up a little bit?
When turning at slow speed on full lock the stock diff will lock up slightly, I guess it would make this worse?
Hi mate,Thanks for that any more opinions?
I guess long term I would probably eventually get a 1.5 way but for now this seems like a nice cheap upgrade!
Thanks for that, you have saved me some potential trouble there then!Hi mate,
Just a word of warning, I ordered the 8Kg kit and was unable to get it to fit. It appears that it's about 1mm short of being under the correct preload. Obviously you could get spacers machine, but if you want a faff free install I'd go for the 12Kg kit which apparently fits without modification.
So just read this and nobody other than Younus
Has expressed a view on what diff
I'm looking mostly track time but obviously drive there and about
Anything to compare guys ?
Did you find the 8kg kit fit into the housing with no issues or did it require spacers?I have Nismo 8kg in stock housing and love it. For normal driving the only time I notice that the diff is no longer stock is when I have full lock in parking lots, gravel etc - It then locks up a little but not bad at all.
Traction is very good, no noise and a cheap and simple upgrade. I guess the 12KG version may be better for a high power track car.
Absolutely!!Can you mix different manufacturers differentials?
Can l use a ATS carbon 1.5way rear with a Nismo 1.5way front diff?
