Im sure this is what they have in their Q60 AWD RS400. They have a video at the drag strip warming up just the rear tires.

Definitely interested in this. Between AMS and Z1, how would you determine which is the better LSD?

Saw this too! Funny, I left a comment on their Instagram one time asking for a diff and they just said "someone somewhere may be working on it".

As far as comparisons, I'd wait for them to drop and see what people report. A good indicator will also be how well they work with the traction control system (VSD I think?).

Just a thought: AMS likely has the upper hand given their partnership with Infiniti. They’re building from the ground up rather than reverse engineering stuff. Helps when you have access to the engineering specs.

Just to be greedy, us AWDs need a front LSD, too.

Some discussion on a GT-R forum regarding the benefits:

Iirc, although the Q50/Q60 have different differentials than GT-R, the rear wheel bias in the AWD is similar.
