This is not nonsense. It just not for the "hard core off roader" the hard core off roader doesn't care about tearing up the yard or slinging a little mud. I get that. This is a solution to the problems guys who use their utv for working around the farm or their properties and who drive it on streets. On an added note the way this rearend is designed and how strong it is, it wouldn't be all that hard to add an electronic locker to it. not that it would be needed in my opinion if you understand how a worm gear diff works. Dg rider this may not be for you thanks for looking and your feedback.
Any limited slip that actually limits slip WILL tear up the yard when you turn. Will still resist turning. Will still contribute to "tire wear". So adding a lock function to a LSD still doesn't get what you want, in that regard.
The only diff that won't do those things is an open diff (driven sanely, of course), and once you do that, you'll see just how much that locked rear end helped, even in "work" situations. You're completely under estimating the value of that spool in the back.
The ultimate solution? A diff that can operate completely open, or fully locked.

It's your time. You can waste it if you want.

I may possibly have interest in the future, i like the idea of a limited slip in the rear, where i ride i dont need a solid locked rear axle, mostly used for yard work and occational trail. The idea behind a limited slip is it locks up with torque so if you are driving through the yard if you arent giving heavy throttle it stays "unlocked". Any idea at this point what the cost per unit would be? I know you dont know exact but im more looking for a ball park?

Thanks

Why would you want to take a step backwards in the rear end?

Now if you're talking about building a locking and unlocking type differential, that's something people have been asking for. AKA turf mode.
I am building a new billet differential with limited slip posi rear end on a CNC for my honda pioneer 700-4. A drop in, bolt in replacement. Just wondering if there would be any interest In anyone buying this unit in the aftermarket? Also what would people be willing to pay for something like this? This unit would obviously be high quality and very durable. I wouldn't sell until It had serious durability test done.

This is fascinating and promising. I use my 700 for rural homestead land management work, and I think this sort of differential is exactly what I wish for every time I perceive the binding that tears up my trails or leaves tire marks on my pavement.

As for price? I have no idea. It looks expensive. OTOH, I've shelled out for expensive stuff that works.

Id say the price will be expensive but if it works like we are thinking itll be worth it.

I would be interested in a locking rear that I control no limited slip for me.I have 45 years of construction equipment and off road truck experience .Most trucks and equip. you lock the rear yourself even PU manufactures are going to switches.If you think a limited slip won't tear your yard up your are wrong
