I think I might add myself as an interested buyer, price depending.

To my knowledge the KaaZ unit was originally a 1.5 way front and 1.5 way center.

Not so sure I like the idea of 2WD until slip then 4WD but maybe your rep doesn't understand how the diffs act on each other?

more pictures of the old unit (disassembled) here

Plus the original price back in the 90's-00's was about 370000JPY which is about $3000USD today not accounting for inflation.

It is 4WD all the time, but it can only ever send 50% of the power to the back, whereas it can send 100% of power to the front....

The stock system is full time 4WD.
Not 2WD till slip, never 100% to the front.
This thread is not the place to begin a debate on it however.

Have a read, we went into it in great detail a while back.

Interested, but I wouldn't have that kind of disposable cash for at least a year. The student life struggle is real.

Wow, this would really be amazing. I have first hand experience with upgrading the center diff in a dsm. Taking a corner, even at normal speeds was just a night and day difference. It really made the car feel like torque was being sent to the rear wheels and was easily one of the better modifications I had on the car.

Does anyone mind if I send the spreadsheet link to KAAZ so they can gauge interest for themselves??

I'd say you might as well because there are at least 25 people already interested. Hopefully we will still get more interest

I'm currently on vacation and can't access the spreadsheet on my phone. If this stays at the $3,000 estimate given earlier I'm 100% in and can pay at any time. And I'm super happy that most the parts are off the shelf and shared with other models!

Just added my name to the list. I am surprised Luke has not put his name down. This would be huge for my build, much better than the uprated vicous center. crazy there is that and another front lsd option available now and this combo coming available pretty much all at once all of a sudden when there was nothing for years!
