CUSCO LSD

TYPE-RS Limited Slip Differential

In the RS Model, the activation pressure is applied to the same direction of the initial torque with the utilization of a coil spring. Therefore, the initial torque is set lower than the MZ model enables a smoother and quicker initial clutch plates engagement from a non operational to a fully functioning state even despite a low initial torque rating is set. The virtues of a low initial torque setting is that it enables a smooth turn even while the LSD mechanism is not activated. Because of the coil spring design, it provides overall gentle and stable operation.

The RS Springs sit inside the pressure rings which helps engage the rear lock and the number of springs can be added or subtracted for personal customization.

These RS Springs apply constant pressure against the clutch plates at all times, resulting in minimal loss of initial torque over time.

     

Pressure ring features dual profiles to switch between (1 way & 1.5 way) (1 way & 2 way) (1.5 way & 2 way) without purchasing additional components!  Specialized cam profiles are available for custom orders.

  • 1 way LSD
    Specially suited for front wheel drive cars and AWD car front axles. Activates under acceleration, and acts as a true LSD when the throttle is off.
  • 1.5 way LSD
    Activates under acceleration while the under-steer under deceleration is less than on a 2 way LSD. Recommended for those who have a hard time with under-steer.
  • 2 way LSD
    Recommended on rear wheel drive cars and AWD car rear axles. Activates on both acceleration and deceleration. Recommended for those who prefer aggressive driving and big angle drifting.

 

TYPE-MZ Limited Slip Differential

Limited Slip Differential (LSD) - Type MZType MZ limited slip differential is designed where the activation pressure opposes the direction of the initial torque with the utilization of the cone spring. The LSD operation first becomes engaged when the opposing pressures start working against one another.

The Type MZ features the highest rated initial torque rating than the rest of any other Cusco LSD models. This is due to the high pressure cone spring which engages full clutch pack lock at a linear rate.

Pressure ring features dual profiles to switch between (1 way & 1.5 way) (1 way & 2 way) (1.5 way & 2 way) without purchasing additional components!  Specialized cam profiles are available for custom orders.

• 1 way LSD
Specially suited for front wheel drive cars and AWD car front axles. Activates under acceleration, and acts as a true LSD when the throttle is off. This CUSCO 1 way LSD will improve lap times.
• 1.5 way LSD
Activates under acceleration while the under-steer under deceleration is less than on a 2 way LSD. Recommended for those who have a hard time with under-steer.
• 2 way LSD
Recommended on rear wheel drive cars and AWD car rear axles. Activates on both acceleration and deceleration. Recommended for those who prefer aggressive driving and big angle drifting.

 

 

Hybrid type LSD

Limited Slip Differential - Hybrid TypeThe Hybrid type LSD has the smallest initial torque of all due to larger diameter coil spring.. The LSD operation first becomes engaged when the opposing pressures start working against one another. This LSD is combines the best qualities of the Type MZ & Type RS for a hybrid setup, mostly suited for automatic transmissions and street driving.

The activation pressure is applied to the same direction of the initial torque with the utilization of a coil spring. Therefore, the initial torque is set lower than the rest of the models which enables a smoother and quicker initial clutch plates engagement from a non operational to a fully functioning state even despite a low initial torque rating is set. The virtues of a low initial torque setting is that it enables a smooth turn even while the LSD mechanism is not activated. Because of the coil spring design, it provides overall gentle and stable operation.

[1 way LSD] Specially suited for front wheel drive cars and AWD car front axles. Activates under acceleration, and acts as a true LSD when the throttle is off. This CUSCO 1 way LSD will improve lap times.
