They both have LSD just the Gen2 has the aftermarket TRD LSD.Po' Kid said:If you plan on doing lots of autoX or road racing Id go with the one with the LSD (better corner exiting).
If you're more of the cruising / drag racing type Id go with the genIII (better shifting).
Axles areSambuca said:Are axles a major inconveinience to change over and whats the usual going price for standard lsd axles?
Oh... hah! I didnt even see that. In that case Id definately go with the GenIII if you can get the half shafts / axles with it. Otherwise, if you are wanting something that can be easily bolted on without alot of aprts searching, the early trans would probably be easier. If you will have to buy the LSd axles separately then you might consider the early one.qwik_MR2_5sfte said:They both have LSD just the Gen2 has the aftermarket TRD LSD.
I'd go with the toyota lsd tranny.m1st3r2 said:Axles are
- easy to change if you're changing transmissions anyway
- Expensive ($300+ for stubs or ~$550 for full axles)
Ask yourself, "why do I want limited-slip, and would a clutch-type (TRD) be better for my driving conditions/style than a viscous coupling?"
Then go look up the differences.
