    LSD for Cayman

    Have no idea if this was already posted here, but 9ff offers LSD 40/60 for the Cayman.
    Many of the owners and car mags complained because of missing an LSD system, so here we go.
    9ff claims that the differential is made from the same company that supplies Porsche with the LSDs for the GT models.
    Can that be, does anybody know who supplies Porsche?

    Re: LSD for Cayman

    Interesting. But questions remain. How much? Will it disable PASM? Is it as good as the GT3 LSD (having the same manufacturer does not mean it is the same type of LSD)?

    Re: LSD for Cayman

    I think one of the best LSD porducers are Drexler-Motorsport. As far as I know, they have a huge reputation in all the Race Series, they also produce the LSD for all the AMG Models OEM.
    Also many M3 drivers change their Torsen Diff, to A Drexler System. It should work really fine, you can read all over the Web only good stuff. They have very aggressive onces for track use, and they have less aggressive for street use.
    Price should be arround 3000 Euro on a newer car. Also should work fine with PSM and PASM as far as I've heard.

    Re: LSD for Cayman

    If all that you say is true, then that is great news, except for the rather steep price.

    That part seems difficult to understand, otherwise I think the CGT, GT2, and GT3 would have optional PSM (if not standard)...

    Re: LSD for Cayman

    I saw an ad in the June Panorama for the Cayman GTR by FarnbacherLoles and it touted having LSD. I don't know any details. www.farnbacherloles.com

    Okay, just came back from the site. There is a review in Car and Driver of the RGT which cites: "...proprietary limited-slip differential developed with STaSIS Engineering helps put those 380 horses most efficiently to the ground."

    Hope you don't mind a late addition to this thread...

    The STaSIS-developed LSD reverses the GT3's 40/60 (accel/decel) split. In the GTR, the higher number (60%) on accel is meant to help in application of power on corner exit. The lower number (40%) on decel is meant to free the rear of the car to aid in rotating on corner entry. The theory is that a lower polar-moment car can get away with a more aggressive setup due to its inherent stability. It is a clutch-type LSD.

    On the track, its presence is immediately noticeable. The combination of the Cross suspension and the STaSIS LSD really made the car a joy on corner entry, and then it claws for every bit of grip on exit.

    Does this LSD work alongside PSM? How much is it, do you know?

    Thanks!

    I activated PSM during one lap and could feel it working sufficiently. I did not verify to what extent, if any, LSD limits the ability of PSM to perform to full specification.

    I am unsure as to availability/price of the STaSIS LSD.

    Re: LSD for Cayman

    BTW i saw an advertisment from "Guard Transmission" regarding LSD for 997. Any opinions?
