Two new LSDs for the Nissan GT-R in three total configurations have been released by tuning house HKS Kansai recently. The HKS Kansai front LSD Spec 1 and the Spec 2 are available to meet different applications of the Nissan GT-R and are both 1 way limited slip differentials. With a 1 way front LSD, effects are only felt under acceleration and the aim is to improve handling when in and exiting corners under acceleration. It also improves grip when accelerating in a straight line.

The HKS Kansai Front LSD Spec-1 is a street and light circuit oriented diff. It comes in two types depending on how agressive you want it. The specifications are as follows:

  • Cam angle (accelerating/coasting): 35°/0° or 45°/0°
  • Initial Torque: 5-6 kgf
  • Friction Plates: 8 per side, 16 total

The HKS Kansai Front LSD Spec-2 is a competition oriented differential and comes only in one type. It also excels at getting you maximum traction off the line in high powered drag GT-Rs. The specifications are:

  • Cam angle (accelerating/coasting): 55°/0°
  • Initial Torque: 10-12 kgf
  • Friction Plates: 8 per side, 16 total

Whether you want the mild street, light circuit or full competition spec front LSD, the price is the same at 205,800 yen. Contact your local HKS Kansai distributor for local pricing and availability.
