It is a 1 way Cusco set at 60% lockup. What I didn't like is that once power was applied the front end would understeer- always. My car is pretty well optimized and prior to the last set of suspension subframes it would go up on two wheels on certain high grip surfaces. After I fixed that the front end would wash out far sooner than the rear when on power out of corners.

Rear diff was (and is) a Cusco clutch set at 100% lockup. Type MZ I think, the one that will lock up at 1 mph vs. the street driveable one. Most people think my car is broken when I pull out of a parking lot space.
