    The drive shafts are locked in place by a "C"clip.



    I'm very much hoping not to have to but if they do pop out I will have to cut the grove deeper that will lock them in. Fingers crossed I don't have to as removing would require a big hammers and destroying the "C"clip. One of the many things with a question mark hanging over it. Fingers crossed hey.

    Edit. I'm going to weld up the diff centre to. Makes for better skids.

    It's a Rear Subaru r160 diff. Very common and cheap. There are loads of LSD options if you want to go that way also.

    They are a nice press fit for 40mm bearing blocks and once you machine the webs off the back will fit a sprocket.



    PS No such thing as a noob comment. Just a person willing the learn.

    If you want to (now or in the future) keep the diff unwelded I'm sure there was somebody on here who heat shrunk a 2 litre lemonade bottle around a diff like that, after packing it with grease.

    So keep the diff center open? It will turn better but wo t it kill the drift factor?

    I'm not stressed about sealing the center. More so that it was built as a camping fun machine. I just assumed it would be like a car with an open diff vs a locker?

    Yeah it pretty much is. Mine is locked and seems to me to corner fine. I have read on here about people who have gone from locked to a diff and rave about how much better it turns. For a paddock basher it's a non issue. Just an idea incase an lsd center falls into your lap.

    The VLSD are cheap but the plated are big coin.
