Crack on Atchi. Its taking the piss as it is, if they actually wanted an LSD theyd have paid by now. Its just a shame i cant currently afford to buy out all the non payers and sell them on

Frustrating you've had to wait so long for your money, how many are outstanding now? Hopefully they've coughed up over the last few days.

I can say that its really frustrating for those of us who actually payed immediately when Atachi asked for the diffs to be paid in full.
I actullally went in and asked on both forums and FB group but i got very little response (Or no response. the only one was the other guy who had paid) from the people who actually dont have the money for the diffs. Hope losing the deposit stings for ya and that you do not engage in a group buy when you do not have the money for it. You know atachi either have to pay for the diffs from his own wallet or put in the work to find people who ACTUALLY have to money to buy the diff.

If someone can give reasons why a car in standard road use might benefit from LSD I might be interested to chat more laters. Would one of these units be a useful spare? Why not put them on ebay? These units sound a bit too specialist for me.
1988 340 1.4 GL, 218k, 5 door (Grey Bess). Gone to CBA.
1991 340 1.7 GL, 64k, 5 door, petrol blue (Deep Blue).
1988 360 2.0 GLE, 140k, 5 door, ocean blue metallic (Blue Bess).
1989 340 1.7 GL, 108k, 3 door (Red Ness).

Hi,

I have contacted on both private e-mail which I got from Paypal or other way.
I have sent pm in this forum also. Oh some of them had a text also.

In my opinion, I should have to chase people as I'm doing a favour.
I have sent pm and posted on this forum where they have seen my post which they responded to.

Benefit of Torsen LSD is all depends on drivers.
If you are a boy racer, your open diff will eventually wear and brake and it will be costly replacement. It could explode and lock your rear wheels and spread oil over the road so it could be of as safety to old cars!? Joke a side....
Honda type Rs have them for OEM. If you want to get a good standing start, you need it.
Suzuki Swift Gti, they could ordered as an option(clutch type LSD)

The Clutch type is heavier on your arms but Torsen type you don't notice as much in FWD.
I'm not sure in RWD as I haven't driven 340/60 in 25 years!

Ask others for RWD LSD benefits a aprt from tail sliding jobs!

Cheers
Atchi

So are we gonna start advertising on Fb groups and such to get new buyers?
Its up to you atachi if you think you have given them enough time but i do not plan on waiting the whole summer for the diff =/
Should be fairly easy when the diffs are 100 pounds cheaper than the original price or are we lowering the cost on all of the diffs?

Hi,

I'm short for 5 units which is £2,500.
I will have to pay it out od my own money now as some who paid have right to get their LSDs.

I'm away on business trip so once I'm back from Japan I will pay and sell others to who every wants it, I guess.

I will let you know those who paid already soon.

Cheers
Atchi

Hi,

I have just received money for 2 LSDs but I don't know who it is from at the moment.
I'm in Japan so I can only check in my bank account and I'm sure I will find out from my bank who paid for it.

So, I'm only waiting for 3 more units pay.

Cheers
Atchi

Are there any left available? I am quite tempted given that you're not going to be doing any more. Don't blame you after the non-paying fiasco!
