"hey, i got a question. Kawahara manufactures a "Negative Differential" part no. Z-1720. i was wondering if anyones knows anything about this product, and what it does. "

This is a kind of limited slip differential. If the speed of rotation (of either side) exceeds a preset rpm, the internal clutch shoes will engage the differential housing and locks up the differential. It is useful to prevent inside wheel spin under hard acceralation out of corners. However, I found that the effect is not as good as Kyosho's limited slip differential. It relies on a special friction oil that locks up the differentials gears when a certain rpm is reached.

well i actually used one in the mugan mtx 3. it let you get off the corner better it gives you a little better stearing at high speeds. but it will create a low speed push. it makes your car more stable because of the loose diff. but getting the diff to work the way you would like is a hit and miss thing. you have to find what works best for you. but the negative diff is a diff with a clutch that turns it into a straight axil. it took me about three different greases before i found one that i liked.
