shimming 101
thought i might share what i found out about this to help the others following. firstly this is a diff shim. when mine was pulled apart it had multiple shims in it, after the new diff went in, it was measured and found that one had to come out.


i dont know what the availability on all the different shims (thickness wise) is like in the usa, but in australia there is none genuine. amayama has some, if you want to wait, or you could get something like these, and make your own, or get a local engineering place to make them.


now these shims help the diff sit snug in the transmission case. getting the right clearance is important to preserve the bearings. to tight and it wont spin, too loose and the bearings will wear. it will take time, and maybe a few fitments, to get it right. here's a picture of mine (32v case,big bearing and shim), you can see the shim in there, tucked underneath the outer bearing shell.


my guys reckon most factory shim specs are too tight. they suggest the widest clearance within spec. shim spec list.

Ok guys, there has been a bit of confusion regarding the LSD's that have been shipped out, and those still waiting to receive theirs, so I need to explain.

When we made the initial samples, we didn't just make 1 set, but a few of them. After testing was complete, these spare units (after modification) were the ones that were shipped out based on order of deposit received.

However, until testing was completed, there was no way for us to start work on the production batch. This has now been started though, but you are still looking nearer the end of the year before these are ready.

I understand that there has been a very long delay on getting the production units started, however, this was out of our control as most of the "delay" was with waiting on approval of the sample units.

I also understand that some of you may not be willing to continue waiting for the production units to be finished, so what I can do if you like is refund your deposits. However, in doing this, you will be removed from the pre-order list and if you do decide further down the line to purchase an LSD, it won't be from the current production batch neither as they are already spoken for. It would be from the next production batch and at full MSRP ($749.95 + shipping).

Once again, please accept our sincerest apologies for the long delay and any inconvenience caused.

Any input from the testers how they actually perform?
