Don't forget about that new brake hard line you need aye bro! :lol: It is looked heaps cleaner though. You know I like those rolling shots :D

Hmm LSD's popped into my head the other day.. Thought it'd be an easy time to swap it while my axle is coming out haha

It's definitely a 7" NA LSD I'm after, but not sure what type of LSD it is. I know clutch types are better, but I know in Nissan circles most skylines and S chassis have viscous diffs, but they can be shimmed to turn it into pretty much a locker so more cost effective than buying a nismo or kaaz clutch type. So with this in mind I wondered if that can be done on Mazda diffs?

Shhh Jesse, my clutch slave is more important!

Could you rig the actuators to work mechanically off the throttle linkage like you do with the secondaries on the nikki carb ?

I think running servos to open the aux ports would work better than a mechanical linkage. And the brakes are dual circuit Jesse :lol:

Nice work Jesse! You have been busy.
And all ready for the summer season.
Best I pull my finger out my axxx and get my own car back on the road.

Running the stock LSD that came with my 12a-turbo and I can't recommend it enough. Makes dealing with the happy tail of our SA22Cs real easy!
