Product Details

The best way to gain a prominent advantage over the competition is to do it with the MFactory Metal Plate Limited Slip Differential. The smooth consistent  distribution of power to the wheels with the MFactory Plate LSD puts the power-to-the-ground and maximises your vehicle's traction. This 1.5-way differential works similar to a 2-way in that it provides torque transfer during both accelleration and decelleration. However, the advantage over a 2-way is that it requires less force to lock the differential. This means that it will allow for different wheel speeds, like when cornering. A 1.5-way differential is typically the best option for track or street use, as it keeps from having one tire skipping or dragging.

What exactly does an LSD do you ask? Well without an LSD your car is actually 1 wheel drive, in that it can't supply torque to both wheels at the same time and will only supply torque to the wheel with less grip, which is what the shortfall is to an open differential (what most vehicles have).

An LSD only lets the wheels spin at different speeds by a limited amount (typically this is a percentage difference) which is when the differential locks and both wheels get power. This is not how locked differentials work such as in off road trucks which supply equal torque and rotational speed to both rear wheels at the same time, which can cause issues with handling.
