r200 LSD - Quafie
« on: March 19, 2012, 08:28:33 PM »
Hey guys,

I have a 1976 260 2+2 and I'm firstly wondering if the diff is an r200 or r180? By the looks of it most of the Z's have r200's?

So I have found that Quafie make an R200 replacement helical LSD, meaning it wont completely lock.. I'm sure you guys know the low down on this stuff.
Anyway, would this be a good way to go if i can get it at a good price? they seem to go for $1300 ish brand new. I'd probs be aiming for a better price than that.. but anyway, here is a link to the Quafie page on it.

Let me know what you guys think!

Thanks!
James

Nissan original clutch pack lsd is adjustable, smoother, but can wear, Quaife is all mechanical, can be noisy, can almost act like a setriot locker, does not offer proggression. Not that good in a competition scenario.
Also more expensive
If interested i have a r200 Nissan clutch pack limo complete for sale
I just race old datsuns:
Group S Historic 280Z ( not a zx but a USA 280z)
Group O/T Historic Datsun Sports 2000
Group G Datsun 120y  with FJ24 fitted( ex G. Fury)
Marque Sports Datsun Fairlady 1966 -SR20DET

get the quaif,
some of the best diffs ever built.
you will need to remove diff to ensure you have everything correct before splashing cash.
260z r200's have 10mm crownwheel bolts (provided it IS a 260z diff)
have 29 spline output gears / side gears.
but check check and check again before splashing cash,
