increase wear rate of rear tyres, since you will be wanted to get it sideways more often

ive got a 2 way in mine... love it. Very little clunk, turn in is much better when your on the power and drives a lot smoother. The chirp in car parks and petrol stations is the best :D

If you are getting a 1.5 or 2 way then there are other brands to consider to.
Any of them will do really, i'd get the cheapest (which probably isn't nismo).

well done yesteryday neb! I think it was those radio brackets that gave you the edge.. just sayin.


yeah i guess the thing with investing in a decent diff (rather than shimming etc) is once it's done, it's done.. and if you make sure you lap it in etc... it'll last you a fair while!

Actually shimmed r200 viscous diffs have a road life of 6 to 12 months depending on your driving style,

thats not coming from me, thats from a diff specialist, who recomends that with dog-scratcher r200 diffs to chuck them out and go mechanical
