A direct replacement for the standard open differential, the Darkside LSD transforms your cars performance and handling. 

The benefits of torque transfer technology are now an essential for most Motorsport, Performance and Fast road/Tack day participants. The increase in exit speed when cornering, and the transformation of the vehicles handling characteristics, are positive performance gains for any vehicle.

The latest NXG LSD is designed and manufactured to be the strongest, most progressive and versatile LSD unit in the market place today. 

The NXG bevel and planet gear pack, with its large, strong tooth profile, gives not only a smooth mesh, but eliminates the rattle and excessive backlash often associated with LSD's. Whilst the plate pack, which always runs on a minimum of 8 active surfaces even in our lighter pre-load settings, gives maximum surface to surface area contact during use.
