Anyone running a welded diff?

How is it living with it?

Regret your choice to have it welded?

Thanks for any feed back

^ ha ha.
I welded an extra one for my te31. I never installed it. If it is anything like my old toyota truck, just get used to your back tires jerking and chirping. U- turns become more fun. Tires wear fast too.

LOL thanks

I did some research on Toymods after posting and read too many stories of awful driving and broken axels.

Thought I deleted this post after that, I must have pushed the wrong buttong

I'll just wait until I can figure out a proper LSD

Yes it really is awful and makes day to day driving very unpleasant. Fun the first day, then you seriously tire of working out how to turnaround without lighting up the tires. And it's deadly in the wet. If you haven't died fairly soonish, you will then snap an axle.

If it was a dedicated circuit car, maybe as a cheap temporary option. But if it is going to hit public roads, don't do it.

Eh, it's not so bad. Been running a welded diff for 5 years now, still have same set of original axles. Driving in rain is a bit scary at times, but it would still be sketchy even without the diff welded since the car is boosted. I just recently got an LSD for it, so I'll be dropping that in sometime soon.
