Greetings Everyone!

I just stumbled upon this on tms.com, has anyone tried it and is it any good?
Im not that too technichal on mods so I have no idea what does this do and what are the pros and cons of having a LSD mod, can anyone chime in on this?

I have a friend who actually bought one of these OS Giken LSD's for his E46 M3, a few years ago. I think it was through diffsonline.

That thing has what seems like 30 internal clutch disc's. (something like that) I'm not kidding, it really has a lot of internal parts. I wouldn't want the task of having to rebuild that damn thing!

It's supposedly gives you better lock up torque off the line, because all those thin clutch discs are designed to work together in a way that improves the initial 'bite'. (at a higher lock-up percentage) It's also suppossed to slip less when it gets hot. (I think that's what he said)

I had a link or photo of an exploded view of all the internal parts that he sent me a while back. Let me see if I can find it again...

i see, i just saw this on tms.com, so yeah the link is the best thing i have for a description, but as you said, i guess this provides a minimal upgrade for our cars :P
