why dont you just shorten the driveshafts and custom an adapter from the GTR diff 6 screws, to the benz D-shafts which is ? of screws....i forgot how many screws are there...

planning to do the same with my W124 and im trying to cut the cost on doing a custom D shafts..

besides, if ur using the outer benz driveshafts joints with the GTR inner joints, if the benz joints would not hold up to the power, it would still break...

and you would have to buy the outer benz dshafts.

I am talking through experience since I have a R32 Tomei 2way LSD in my W123 using custom driveshafts. Outer Benz, Inner Nissan joints...

when they break, ill still have to buy W123 complete dshafts since they would not sell half of the kit.

If your just interested in using an viscous LSD, why did you choose an GTR32 but not the other models since they are so much more available and cheaper...

currently its 1am in Malaysia...

pm me your email address and I would send it directly to you 2morrow

If the axles broke, I'll go to a reputed driveshaft shop and make 100% custom ones good for my whp goal.
ok...thats a good choice but dont forget to strengthen the subframe too since theres a couple of Silvia guys breaking it while drifting with a stock 1jz manual.
