s14...mostly susp mods...<--NEED DIFF!!!
weld it! it sucks for daily driving, but for drifting, you'll wonder why you waited so long to do it!

and its not that hard to swap out diffs. if i know there's no event coming up, i slap the open diff back on.

yeah, i was gonna get a spare one i had welded, but unfortunately, an upcoming event was cancelled...so i figure that i wouldnt have to waste tires or call for attention by chirping just yet...all in due time...

ive also been prowling for a used mechanical or torsen type forever...planning on hitting the mountains too so im a little uneasy about the welded...we'll see which comes first...

I second that! Only I have to have a 240Z; I will settle for nothing heavier (280Z/ZX).

actually if you can go with a clutch diff, i'd rock that......to me the welded diff is a little iffy, but thats me. works great for road racing though.

moo2t...I figure cause i've used it for both. Driving it on the road course, you're not doing things that intentionally upset the cars handeling. When I would hit the proper slip angle through a turn the car felt natural and predictable. Now when doing more aggressive\intentional drifting at the last drift day, the car felt very unpredictable after the rear end got to a certain point.

however like all things, you have to take into account....Tires, camber, caster, tire pressure, track temp, how the cars running, familiarity with the car\track...all that stuff.

Is the welded diff better than open diff for drifting...heck yeah. Would I take a welded diff over a 2 way clutch...nope, but thats just me.

i don't think anyone in their right mind would take a welded over a 2 way. but 2 way's cost upwards of $1k generally and a welded costs ~$50. and since the majority of drifters are broke and spend what little money they have on tires, that seems to be the popluar solution.
