    Has your car ever had problems in the past?

    Hi SedatZX, no problems in my ownership.

    Lindsay form the z shop picked up small turbo hose leak on 100 km service (fix during service) also a loose rear steering rod arm (replace / repaired during last service).

    Also last 10k service was idling at about 900 -1100 revs. Again this was fixed with an air idler adjustment valve? (something like that).
    It was my big worry when buying a zed, that something would go wrong, but the car has been great and the forum has provided countless hours of reading and advice on mitigating some of the issues.

    a letter from the owner

    Gday Si, good to see you so heavily involved in forum and also so concerned about my car/diff.

    I have been asking about it myself in regards to the legality and googling (rwc locked diff) on the internet. Both have provided quite interesting results, including quite a few number of cars with RWC and locked diffs (try it yourself) this would mean that all these are dodgy RWC ( as you are accusing me of?) or that in some form ( i.e increase/enhanced limited slip) are not completely legal. It would also be intresting to find out how this would be checked for a roadworthy, as they do not test drive then and they woud not pull down component ( engine, diff or otherwise) to check ratios / compression...

    I am not sure what your concern is, as I am advertising that fact the rear end is not stock I am going through the correct channels to get a road worthy.
    Is it that you want me to challenge the law / road worthy supplier and/or have and engineer carry tests out on the diff to destruction to prove a point to you?

    My ZX mechanic said it was ok if it did not impair the normal driving of the car, My father (as also mentioned to yourself) has a blown 454 Chevy El Camino that has only just been imported into the country with full compliance (more investigation than just a roadworthy) His car has an aburn posi locker similar caraturistic to my ZX, as it not a full time Locked diff but an upgraded LSD.

    As I mentioned I have not pulled the diff apart myself or had it installed and so the statement "I have been advised" is also to be taken as that. The diff does have the characteristics of an increase transfer of power to both wheels when driven hard or tight concentric circles. It could be as minivan mentioned
    ?nismo would be more likely to just make mechanical 2-way LSDs rather than diff locker? now would this be legal?

    When you get your very own ZX you will realise that this is a sports car and as such, it displays some very unique properties that are not common on your every day items. Further more this is enhanced when you are dealing with imports from the JDM or anywhere else in the world.

    I can say that I have been driving the car for a year now and enjoyed every minute of it, I do not believe that it is a completely locked diff but version between the standard Limited Slip Diff and a locked diff and I will be selling it as such and with a roadworthy.

    Please feel free to investigate further, as I would love to have more information to impart on to the new owner.

    I also recall you say that the ute you have just built has only 50mm ground clearance, is this also not and infringement of the law, did you get a rwc at this level or was is raised to pass and then lowered back to this illegal level

    Again thanks for your concern and good luck in finding the right car for you.

    PM by hot300zx

    ask him how he intends to get a roadworthy for it when it has an illegal for street use diff locker,
