Tran-X LSD Mini Differential
The Mini Tran-X clutch plate limited slip differentials (LSD) - competition proven over many years in many diciplines including race, rally, hillclimbs and sprints. The Unique design operates without preload, therefore no drag which reduces speed.
Tran-X have been manufacturing and developing clutch plate limited slip differentials for many years. This design uses a series of clutch plates, rather than gears, to provide the locking action. This LSD comes with a dual ramp block fitted, which means there are two different ramp angles on one reaction ring. Add to this the two preload settings and you have four different set ups supplied with each unit!
A common characteristic of the plate design is a ‘knocking’ sound at slow speeds especially when turning and pulling off slowly. This ‘knocking’ is not a fault with the LSD or drive train. It occurs when the plates tension themselves and because there is no locking action at slow speeds. This is a motorsport LSD and this noise is part of the differentials normal operation.
You will also need a suitable crown wheel and pinion from our extensive range of ratios. The standard Mini crown wheel will not fit this unit.
