I think there would be interest but most of us would like some more information on who this company is so we can investigate some of their other work.

Also the TRD Diff set was a clutch type which seems to be less popular with everyone on here than a torsen type setup.

You should start a new thread and list all the info you can about it. Like they "can" make one or they "already have" made one for a ST205? Price? Does it have to be a group buy or can you order them individually? What type of LSD are they, clutch or torsen? Can you buy just a front or does it have to be both like the TRD one? When you order how long is the turn around time? If it is a group buy, what's the minimum amount of people that have to purchase one.

Things like this.
I'm interested to hear more.

^Yeah, several companies have said they can do it until they actually get a stock front in their hands and realize what's actually involved. :|

Still, if it pans out that you've found the white buffalo let us know. There's certainly plenty of interest. 8)

They were not able to make it because it required special machining.

Hello Guys!

I have good and bad news also. Se have 1 set of TRD front and center differential, and he thinks he can make the same using the original, but told me he doesn't think can be the same quality even if he uses very good quality material for that. He makes sequential gearboxes, dog kits for rally cars. He told me this is a very exspensive to make this L.S.D. even if it wont be the same. I don't know which is the good decision. What do you think?

TTE LSD parts. I have no idea if any of this stuff could work for us, but they carry xtrac parts as well so that may be the purpose here.

So it won't be as strong? Does anyone know how strong the TTE ones were? I know they could hold up to the abuse of a rally but they only had to last a weekend of racing, not several years of driving.
