Exclamation 2000 2.5RS has a limited slip

I have heard that the 2000 2.5rs has a limited slip. If this is true and anyone knows where to get one please let me know.

Thanks,

Yes, the MY00 has a rear lsd.

You can try looking in junkyards for a wrecked MY00, or pick one up from a dealer. I think you'll need the associated "rods" (sorry forget what it's called) that stick out of it as the MY98/99 ones don't fit. Am I correct here guys?

Nah, a clutch limited slip is fine. You can't shim them too aggressively or you can't turn on tarmac, unless you have the power to break loose the back tires and slide the rear end around.

But if you shim them for a more conservative lockup-- like 25% or so-- they work great.

Torsen is better though, that's what I'd buy. I'm a tarmac-loving looser though.

What do you mean by "shim" the LSD?

The clutches are held together by spring tension. If you add shims, the tension becomes higher and decreases the speed difference allowed between the axles.

Go look at the issue of SCC from a few months back. I believe Shiv has swapped it into his '99 RS since the '99 didn't have it. It's all explained in that months issue.
