ATS carbon limited-slip differential
Gives me more bite coming out of the turns at the track.
Most of you also have this from the factory, but a far less effective viscous type.
ATS is a clutch type and usese carbon plates.
Oh my.. That is dirty.

Well it looks real good.. Hopefully we can catch a red light together sometime in So. Cal.
SD is a little far from where I am. Maybe @ the track? :D

Speak of which ... Laguna Seca track event in early 2007 anyone game?

It's getting close to that time again and I'm getting ready to rowdy up another group of Gs 'n Zs for this annual festivity. This is also a HPDE (High Performance Driving Education) event for newbs to tracking. So no need to get intimidated. I'm going to see about forcing beanie to do this. :twisted:

Of course spectators are also welcomed for free. You can simply show up and decide if you'd like to partake next time, but I assure you you'd kick yourself silly for not tracking when you see and feel it in person.

Typically we'll also plan a elaborate winery tour out of this too. :cool: Folks you've got months to think about ... let's make this a 6mt meet! :D

Man you have a ATC carbon diff? How does it feel Clint? How does it compare to the stock diff? I know you track your car often.

Quite simply put it RAWKS!


Stock viscous LSD is simply not up to the duty cycle of extended tracking using R-compound tires. ATS is a clutch type LSD like the Nismo, Cusco and Kaaz, but without any of the clicks and snaps that plaques the streetability - thanks to the carbon discs that mates w. butter-like efficiency. Some real cool shiet!

Oh snap! I just remembered that I wrote a full review of the ATS carbon LSD here @ 6mt, but that whole "review" section is deleted? :confused:

... must have a talk w. beanie when she returns from Japan! :mad: ( hi honie! :wavey: )


Here's the same review on My350Z:

I didn't recognize the 'performance mods' thread because it use to be so dead in there.

I consider myself to be of average intelligence with a solid level of reading comprehension. Admittedly, I'm still a novice in this world of import high performance cars, modifications and track racing.

So reading your post felt like I was reading this, "After the install the typical clutch-type thingy techy talk, disc, 8 turns, pricey, disc to disc, hip bone connected to the back bone, back bone connected to the neck bone techy talk techy talk . . . improved performance. The ATS was again seamless in its operation on the track. The LSD ( :shock: I had no idea he did drugs) clutch engagements were fluid and progressive as advertised. I didn’t notice sudden jerks or disruption of power – like butter."

I do understand that it greatly increased the performance of your racing experience overall :grin:

Everytime I think I know something about our cars, I get humbled and edumacated some more. Evidently I still gotta do my homework. Nice post Clint, one of my goals in life is to fully understand what you're saying :wink:

Uh, I know you all will prob boo me or want me out, but I wanted to come here to post some pics of my beautiful new
Infiniti QX55! It's not a sports car, but it sure is fun to drive, gorgeous looking, (to me!!) & there isn't any good forums for it yet! I've been in here for a LONG time looking, but haven't been in here 4 a while! Well, what do you think? Be kind!

Sorry to hear. Red Noland in C/S CO. does a great job. The New car manager knows us as previous customers & he called in a fav from a Texas Infiniti dealer & they got this QX55 from them for us!
