Welded Diff vs. $1200 Diff | HiLow

$1200 Limited Slip Differential vs a Free Welded Differential! Is saving the cash worth it? Let’s find out.
Team Hi (James Pumphrey & Zach Jobe) and Team Low (Nolan Sykes & Aaron Parker) have installed coilovers, wheels, and big meaty tires in order to make their cars faster, but we’re not just building these 350zs to be race cars, we’re building them to be fun cars. And what’s more fun than doing some sweet drifties on the skid pad.
To do that, we’re going to be swapping out our differentials... well Team Hi is. Nolan will be doing the time honored option of welding his.
With an open differential, the power from your engine takes the path of least resistance to the wheels. That’s good for allowing the inside and outside wheels to spin at different speeds when taking a turn -which is the reason diffs were invented in the first place. But, if one wheel totally loses traction the open diff just keeps directing more power to it and that one wheel will keep spinning til kingdom come. This is what we call a one-tire fire.
One way to limit that wheel from slipping is with a limited slip differential, or LSD. Team Hi bought a KAAZ SuperQ 2-way clutch-type Limited slip differential! 2 way means that the LSD engages the same amount during acceleration and deceleration. 2 way is generally the choice of drifters, because it keeps your lsd engaged pretty much all the time, which is good for skids.
Another way to prevent that one tire fire slippage and not spend $1200, is to weld the spider gears together leaving your back wheels permanently locked together all the time. This is great in a straight lines and when drifting, but when you go around corners and the wheels need to go different speeds, the diff can’t do its job anymore and the wheels end up constantly scrubbing and breaking traction in small jumps. But sometimes breaking traction is exactly what you want :)

    I realized this episode that I'm watching an episode of some of the most popular car enthusiasts out there, and these guys don't even know how to work on their own cars. They don't even know how to use gasket maker... Let that sink in. I thought I was watching experts from all the kinda stuff they release, but no. These guys just make content on stuff they discover from research, and that'll make good videos. Not gonna lie, that's freaking awesome lol

    That type of car should have limited slip differential as standard equipment. Single pull on that is absurd. My 08 Silverado has posi traction, it was an optional add on but I was glad to find out it has it. What kind of person orders that car new without it? Unless it was not an available option, which sounds crazy

    if you have the right tires on the car, the only time you'll notice a welded diff over an LSD... after the burnout the clutches in the LSD will be overheated eventually wearing out and regarding tires with the welded diff, good tires wont squeak or hop on tight turns they hold and brake traction vary smooth.

    Uhhhhh..... 1200 is extremely reasonable and attainable by just about anyone with a minimum wage job. Seen MANY (more than i can count on 2 hands) friends/ associates welded diffs break . waste of time and time=money regardless. Don't be a cheap ass, save up do it right the 1st time. The KAAZ 2 way is ON ANOTHER LEVEL, it will last forever and you will not regret it
