KAAZ dumped the viscous coupling and stuck the center there [where it should be]. Seems pretty straightforeward to me. :P

This is also why this 4WD setup can never be more than 50/50 rear/front drive, as the front is always driven, so it can be more drive to the front, but never more drive to the rear than the front...


Is the 165 center diff in the T case? For the locking diff type.
How do you plan on getting power to the rear with the 185 if you disconnect the rear? You're mechanically disconnecting it so no power goes there.


Hahahahaha I amaze myself sometimes with the complete stupidity I come up with....Nicely caught...Maybe I could get the power there by slow boat or carrier pigeon... :rofl:

Seems pretty stright forward to go the Kaaz route until you actually have to design something. Yes it is fairly straight forward, but its not exactly cheap...
The quaife solution is pretty cheap by all accounts

And honestly... Running the KAAZ on track, When the front locks up, understeer is quite noticeable.

Thank you to all who have ordered so far, if you would be so kind as to update me on what you think once you have them installed that would be great. :)

We're partway through installing ours currently. Waiting on various bearings from Toyota before being able to complete and head back to the track.

Thanks

Looks just as expected, amazing! Install updates probably not till next season. Wracking my brain on a VC solution before I do a trans overhaul...

Digging up an old thread. Did Kaaz ever get back to you? Would love a kaaz/trd L.S.D.

This seemed to fizzle out.....

But I am trialing a front LSD plate diff in my Rally car at the moment, almost ready for release, I will be posting here with the details as they become available.

A company came up with a shaft that turns the viscous coupler into the front diff and locks the center, it might be a good option for some people.

KAAZ just didn't seem to care enough, honestly. We had the list of interested buyers but the company makes decisions based on majority vote at board meetings and this just didn't make the cut... The US rep tried but to no avail.

We really need a solution for the VC. It's the weak link. Not that we don't need a front LSD but the VC is problem once that is solved...
