interesting, but 30min duty cycle will require some sort of thermostat controlled switch or something. Do you really overheat your diff enough to require something like this?

They do sell switch thermostats for pretty cheap so it is possible.

What I do to diffs is pretty harsh. bad air flow and lots of speed difference between wheels (potentially). I mean. I don't NEED a cooler. But it will prolong the life of my diff.

I'm not doing this any time soon. But it's nice to know I have options.

Yoshi would be the one to have that laying around. Can't you just buy a worn out LSD from a junk yard?

Yea I think Roy found this forum from my youtubes channel. On the down side, with moving houses, I tossed anything that resembled spare parts. As such, I got nothing. So much nothing that it's sad :(
