    $1200 Limited Slip Differential vs a Free Welded Differential! Is saving the cash worth it? Let’s find out.
    Team Hi (James Pumphrey & Zach Jobe) and Team Low (Nolan Sykes & Aaron Parker) have installed coilovers, wheels, and big meaty tires in order to make their cars faster, but we’re not just building these 350zs to be race cars, we’re building them to be fun cars. And what’s more fun than doing some sweet drifties on the skid pad.
    To do that, we’re going to be swapping out our differentials... well Team Hi is. Nolan will be doing the time honored option of welding his.
    With an open differential, the power from your engine takes the path of least resistance to the wheels. That’s good for allowing the inside and outside wheels to spin at different speeds when taking a turn -which is the reason diffs were invented in the first place. But, if one wheel totally loses traction the open diff just keeps directing more power to it and that one wheel will keep spinning til kingdom come. This is what we call a one-tire fire.
    One way to limit that wheel from slipping is with a limited slip differential, or LSD. Team Hi bought a KAAZ SuperQ 2-way clutch-type Limited slip differential! 2 way means that the LSD engages the same amount during acceleration and deceleration. 2 way is generally the choice of drifters, because it keeps your lsd engaged pretty much all the time, which is good for skids.
    Another way to prevent that one tire fire slippage and not spend $1200, is to weld the spider gears together leaving your back wheels permanently locked together all the time. This is great in a straight lines and when drifting, but when you go around corners and the wheels need to go different speeds, the diff can’t do its job anymore and the wheels end up constantly scrubbing and breaking traction in small jumps. But sometimes breaking traction is exactly what you want :)

To be honest even if you were getting 200 microgram of LSD per blotter, a sheet is still not worth $1200. Other guy was right, you spent too much on it.

Big difference between an LSD and a welded dif. There really is no comparison in a car that corners. A welded dif is only good for the drag strip you don't want the inner tire chattering in corners it eats tires and may cause a spin out. Even a true Posi isn't very good for cornering.

For daily driver's, the car with the welded diff. Will be buying tires a lot more often, than the car with the limited slip differential. Short-term the welded differential maybe cheaper but in the long run installing the limited slip differential would be more cost-effective.

I had a KAAZ in my rx7. It was SO LOUD. Absolutely useless for anything other than full noise skids. Feathering for grip around sweeping corners in the wet? Forget about it. Fuckin thing locks up and lets go at random. And yeah, as our boy here says, the squares all look at you like your car is broken whenever you are trying to park it. Because it basically IS broken. Welded diff would have been better.

I think it really depends on what you're doing with the car, If I had a nicer car I daily drive it would be LSD. However with a cheap car that I bought specifically for skids I would weld the diff.

He said "Mines in a box". I highly doubt that creatures thing has ever been in a box, except for his buddie's buttbox. How did they find two such beastly looking guys? Is the ugliness supposed to draw in viewers or maybe just morbidly draw the eye like a corpse laying on the side of the road? Maybe it's like staring at an accident as you drive by. It must be. God that is a lot of ugly. You ever notice though that many TV people, like news anchors and such, are very weird looking? Like Jay Leno and Conan or that other red-eyed, rat-like albino freak. It's like people with weirdly shaped or oversized heads do well on TV, especially guys with unspeakably ugly faces. I wish I could invest in the guys in this video. They are going somewhere for sure!
