Features of a limited slip differential

1. Traction performance comparable to diff lock

When L. S. D is activated, the left and right wheels are in a direct connection state. “Hiwow LSD”is a revolutionary 4-wheel drive mechanical LSD that demonstrates the optimum locking power for the stage from off road to general roads.

2. Ruu smoothly on road

Since the lock mechanism does not operate up to the set torque value, “Hiwow LSD” can enjoy comfortable driving of the open differential on a road surface with good grip such as asphalt. Moreover, the transition of the lock ⇔ open is extremely smooth.

3. straight runningstability at high speed

Because the frontal projection area is large and the center of gravity is high, the cross-car 4WD car tends to become unstable due to the influence of the crosswind and ruts while driving at high speed. “Hiwow LSD” minimizes the influence of them by locking the rotational difference between the left and right during acceleration.

4. Amazing durability

Special specifications for 4WD, such as increased number of friction plates and high-strength high carbon steel differential case. In addition, the locking operation is combined with smooth operation to achieve amazing durability.

5. Professional off-road racing driver Impressions

When a general mechanical LSD was mounted on the front, steering operability was sacrificed in exchange for traction, so it was not actively mounted. However, while securing overwhelming traction, “Hiwow LSD” has almost no sense of discomfort in the steering operation. The same is true for the rear differential, and even if the steering is largely cut in a place like a parking lot, there is no unpleasant operation noise or a sense of drag unless a rough accelerator work is done. It is appreciated that the so-called “active LSD” and common sense “permanence” in general use is almost gone.

6. Test driving impression

Test vehicle: Land Cruiser 80 4Lo Driving / Conditions: U-turn to a relatively flat moglucose at a sharp angle

A: Front and rear open differential
Even though I took the line correctly, my tires got stuck and stuck. To clear, you have to accelerate and gain momentum.

B: Front and rear “Hiwow LSD”
There is no wrinkle in steering and it clears without being stuck. I drove to stack, but did not reach the stack. I feel as if my arms have risen.

C: Front and rear differential lock
It showed a stable run because it took traction in the whole area, but the steering became extremely heavy, and the target line was not taken, and the turnaround increased.
