OS Giken?

I just sent the ? to Craig W. (OasisT) but looking for opinions on how much faster the OS Giken LSD might be than the Quaife I already have in my R53 on a typical ax course? Would it pull faster 60 ft times at a Pro Solo as well? I think I'll be needing a clutch soon which is what got me thinking about it. Does the Giken typically need to pulled down and adjusted? What should I get for a combination Street/Ax car a 1 way, 1.5 way or 2 way?

tough to say exactly what kind of differences you'll see. a lot will depend on your setup, how much power you're making, etc.

you definitely don't want a 2 way, at most 1.5 way or "1.3" way if it can do that. that's just a matter of how much lock up you want during deceleration. typically though, i think fwd cars or front axles they use a 1 way.
