The Swiftune Tran-X Mk6 plate type LSD limited slip differential for the classic racing Mini turns everything that you know about LSDs on its head.
The Mk-6 is a plate type LSD, but unlike the older versions of the Tran-X, Salisbury, Evolution and other plate diffs, it features zero pre-load. This transforms the entire driving experience as there is no power sapping drag as in older design pre-loaded diffs and it removes the torque steer traditionally present in other FWD diffs.
Driving the Mk-6 is a pure revelation; you will simply go faster with more ease! During light steering inputs in high speed fast corners, the differential operates like an open diff, so it is light to steer and does not sap valuable power. During tighter cornering, the diff progressively locks just like older plate diffs and gives maximum drive to both wheels. Zero pre-load eliminates torque steer which is present in all other pre-loaded plate type LSD’s, thus giving the driver far more control. The unique design allows better corner turn-in, which can be a traditional problem with other differentials.
The Tran-X Mk6 LSD is designed for race use where it can demonstrate its superiority over the pack. Swiftune’s Tran-X Mk6 can be easily serviced with no special tools and of course, no pre-load to set! Manufactured in Great Britain and solely available from Swiftune.
