How do I get on in this group buy what's your paypal?

I have a P11 w/VLSD but I do believe it will fit as all the below listed vehicles use the same differential unit:

PM him and he'll add you to the group. The Russian posted it up on G20.Net a while back

Money sent!

Note: To save costs, you would reuse the bottom part of your oem viscous LSD (it is made redundant anyway).

Good stuff. What would be the torque to reattach that bottom part?

I'll need to double check with our engineer that disassembled the oem unit, but most bolts for the diffs generally are torqued to anywhere between 75-85lb

Forgot to mention, current ETA for the prototype is around Xmas time.

If you guys could decide amongst you who you want to do the testing

I can't press my car too much on the street so I'm open to someone else testing

Interesting. This may actually address one of the issues I face using a helical style in rally. On a typical helical setup, if one wheel has near 0 traction (e.g. in the air, on wet ice), the other will not get any torque (since it's a proportional thing). In that situation, if there were to be the VLSD unit still in place, it would, I expect, act like a stock VLSD diff and send more power to the wheel with traction.

That assumes that the VLSD is behaving and not entirely burned out like mine is, but still. Seems like benefits beyond cost savings. Well done.
