Hello all.
I haven´t been logged in here for a long time because of a move to an other house and garage.
Haven´t fitted the LSD either.

But this makes me sad, that the production of the LSD:s will not continue.

Is there a possibility that this could continue without you miniswift :?:

Hi,

I'm still getting them made for people want them.
It is just matter of waiting for my manufacturer to have spare few hours as they are supporting rear racing/rally car teams!
That's their job and in their spare time, they make my orders.

Cheers
Atchi

I have 3/4 people interested already.
smchris
madseb
Bergvik
riverbend

Let me know which of you would take these 2 and I get them made more agian.

Hi,

UK is £600 including postage.
EU £630 including postage.

Madseb has paid up but waiting for other person and see if they wants to buy it.
If 3 others didn't take it, then you have dib for it.
I'm waiting for the delivery from my contact...

Having now driven the car with the LSD I find the steering is very heavy when getting into a corner. I'm on manual rack and havn't driven the car in a decade or 2 and used to the very light 940. It feels to me like the diff is locked and resisting the car turning, it this correct or is there something wrong?

I was unable to turn the wheels differentially by hand while holding the other wheel with my foot, but didn't get much of a grip on it. I'm doing the clutch at the moment so car is fully off the ground.

An LSD will lock both rear wheels so they both turn at the same speed, it essentially limits the amount the diff will slip or lock when cornering at differnnt speeds

shame they didnt name it a limited slip diff :roll: :lol:

Nothing wrong with your diff buddy, it should feel like its locking when cornering, its a good sign of a healthy lsd

if it was an open diff and locking up you should be worried...... or excited, depending on your driving style :lol:

Hmm yeah, not sure where you got that I was a newbie.

I don't have much experience of LSDs but I understand this is a torsen limited slip differential not a locker, it is not meant to lock up ever, in fact I believe it is a disadvantage with the design that it needs some grip to multiply torque and transfer traction.

I certainly did not expect the steering to feel like it is a welded diff, but looking for others experience. I expect it to a bit stiffer to turn than an open diff but not impossible. In fact I think it did turn by hand initially.
When the steering is round about 1/4 turn it starts to feel unusually heavy.

If this is normal for this type of diff its going up for sale, but feels like its siezed differentially. Its only done 5 miles.

sorry bud wasnt trying to sound patronising or anything, it was meant in jest :)


anyhoo back to diffs, im not familiar with the exact torsen in the volvo but from my understanding (but i could be wrong, please correct me if i am :) ) althouh a torsen dosent physicaly lock, once the touque output ratio reaches 1:1 both wheels will turn at the same rate, so is this not technically locked, in terms of wheel rotation

but as you say you wouldnt imagine it would feel like a welder at slow/avereage cornering speeds

Hi,

Torsen has 3 gear wheels.... kind of.
Once it start to turn different speeds, it will lock itself and act like a welded diff.

Yes but surely it should not be locked at standstill or going around corners? It has to have some slip. The point is to reduce wheel spin while allowing enough differential speed for cornering, otherwise its the same as a welded diff, no need for gears.

At the moment I'm convinced its siezed and intend on taking it out. This is its first use. Any suggestions?

Could anyone with my LSD answer this for me as I don't actually know how it behave!?

Hello, I tested the first of these LSD's for Miniswift. It was in my 360 which was a PAS car. I didn't feel any real difference in the steering being heavier because of the rear wheels being more constrained in relation to each other. In fact i can't remember any real downsides at all, It made driving a load more fun and predictable especially when sliding. Maybe the PAS hid these signs. I was running 205 width tyres at one point and still never noticed any difference. It's one of the biggest things i miss now i have a 740 with an open diff.

When you fitted the diff how much did you change? did you swap the bearings over, crown wheel etc. all these could potentially cause a problem. The backlash in the crownwheel / pinion is set by the thin shims between the bearing cups and the diff casing. It needed changing on mine due to using new bearings, the LSD may be a few points of a mm different to the stock diff you had and thus the shims may need re-arranging?

For reference the diff i ended up using was an '88 3.64:1 casing with 3.82:1 pinion and crown pair from a '84 IIRC. used new bearings inc. outer races, shimmed using odd ones I had from a few diffs. bog standard 80/90 from halfords as lube.

I'll try and keep checking back to offer any more help / answer any questions.
