Black­line Hel­i­cal LSD for the Ford Fi­esta ST180 IB6

Car Mechanics (UK) - - Cm Insider -

The ever-ex­pand­ing range of Black­line Hel­i­cal LSDS now in­cludes a unit de­signed specif­i­cally for the best-sell­ing Ford Fi­esta ST180 IB6 (part no HLF016). These LSDS are torque bi­as­ing, load­ing more torque to­wards the wheel with the best trac­tion, thus im­prov­ing per­for­mance and drive­abil­ity, es­pe­cially in low grip sit­u­a­tions.

The hel­i­cal gear­ing man­ages the dis­tri­bu­tion of fric­tion within the LSD – when torque is applied to the hel­i­cal gear sys­tem it cre­ates force that pushes the gear into the dif­fer­en­tial body, thus cre­at­ing fric­tion. In­creases of torque raises the thrust force di­rectly pro­por­tional to the amount of torque. This al­lows the Black­line LSD to cope with con­sid­er­able trac­tion im­bal­ance even un­der heavy power con­di­tions. They work es­pe­cially well when com­bined with mod­ern anti-lock brak­ing sys­tems. This new Hel­i­cal LSD for the Fi­esta ST180 IB6 costs £594.00.
