I may be doing a deal for an r32 GTR currently running a Nismo 1.5 lsd. I've done a bit of research on it and most users say its a bit of an arsehole for parking/hill starts etc but still driveable and great on the road.
The way I look at it, if all these people can put up with it then so can I, but, if I decided to change it, what would your recommendations be ?
The car is running over 500bhp. I would be using it as my only car so an LSD thats good for every day driving.
I'd like it to be quiet and non clunky.
I cycle to work so although its my only car, I would really only be using it as a weekend thing or the odd daily drive.

cheers, I will look into the cusco lsd. Once I have actually driven it I will know if I can live with it but it's good to have a fall back.

Parking you would not know ,hill starts the same,
coming out of a t junction a little noisy , slow or low throttle junction manouveres notchy , get a little out of shape coming out of a bend in the wet and problem sorted.:thumbsup: .

If you can live with people looking at you very strangely when parking and it's incredibly clunky, other than that the Nismo is not noisy or whiney. On a run it feels great, but I have done hardly any miles on mine.

I had a 1.5 on my last car, I found it way too harsh for driving on the road, it used to lock my wheels up going into roundabouts and was a bit lively in the wet :eek:
Swapped it over for a standard one.

Been thinking about fitting a cusco one to my r34 gtr vspec, 300zx owner said they drive like stock and stick like glue.

Would anyone know if it matters if l have a vspec and if a after market diff is compatible?

Or would l be better off staying with the vspec diff, heard it was different to the non vspec diff but not sure, may have got my wires crossed.

Updated diffs are noisy and clunky. If you don't change the oil in them they become even more noisy and clunky (recently changed the oil in mine and it became much less noisy/clunky)

Tbh they're a right pain in an everyday car.. Used to run a welded diff in an everyday car and both my R32's have had uprated diffs. However, they are SO much fun to drive - I have driven an R32 with a standard diff and it was much nicer on the road but boring in comparison on track.

If you're planning to use as an everyday car standard re-conditioned. Diff best way to go probably..

i run the cusco RS LSD - fine when driving normal

only tricky when surfaces are really wet.


edit: - if you using it everyday just go for a normal one as suggested above.

been there on my 1st 32, was bit of a pain for everyday driving (tomei lsd)

Matty, did you get any noise with the cusco RS LSD when parking, taking bends, reversing etc etc and was it the 1.5way version?

its the 1.5

tbh around corners, you cant hear due to the noise from the muffler but parking is the biggest time you hear it.

id not bother if people are using it for everyday.

Anyone got any experience with the carbon L.S.D's?

Nismo PRO GT carbon and the ATS carbon L.S.D

ATS boast no noise at all, I'd imagine that with all the carbon types.

Side note, the ATS twin carbon clutch i have is super smooth.
