Quaife ATB Helical LSD differential fits the front of AWD vehicles with 02Q transmission (e.g. Mk5 Golf R32/Mk2 TT Quattro, S3, etc). A direct replacement for the standard open differential, the Quaife 02Q will positively transform your car's handling and launch performance.
Many benefits are offered over a standard open differential including maximising traction and minimizing wheelspin. Torque steer and driveline wrecking wheel hop/tire snatch are minimized. Unlike a conventional plate-style limited slip differential, the Quaife 02Q relies on gears rather than clutch plates for its operation. That means it is much smoother in operation and maintenance-free over time. No periodic rebuilds are required to keep performance consistent.
These differentials never lock harshly with a set pre-load of wheel slip across the driven axle, like a plate-type LSD. Rather, the Quaife LSD automatically biases the torque away from the spinning wheel across the axle, to a constantly varying degree, and never locks.
