Locking an LSD vs Open R200 Diff

Recommended Posts

I am a newbie.  In the process of building a Velo Rossa out of a 240z.  I have a R200 open differential already installed, but the driveshaft is not in yet.


I have a racing buddy, who has an extra limited slip R200 differential that he wants to keep, instead of sell to me, as he may need a differential in the future.  He locks his differentials, to the point that one wheel will bounce when you take a slow turn.


Is there any reason my friend would rather lock up a limited slip diff versus an open diff?  I would assume it is way easier to weld the open diff than to weld the lsd.
