Just wondering what the difference is?

i went to the wreckers today and he had a 3.27 spin resistent diff centre i could buy, but what i want is an lsd. so whats the difference with them? and can a spin resistent diff be changed to an lsd easily?

cheers

I dont know what a spin resistant diff is but it might be a mini-spool, if it is then steer clear because not only are they illegal but they are ridiculous to drive. A minispool locks both your wheels so they only spin at the same time which equals incredibly hard U-turns and reverse parking.

minispools arent 'ridiculous' to drive...theyre just a little more challenging than LSD or open-centre...theyre actually easier to drive if theres more power at the wheels....but its not a minispool so this post is pointless :P
