I was reading through my latest Import Tuner, and they had an article on what you need ot set up a car for drifting. Naturally they mention LSD's. Well they also named a few companies that produce LSD's, and I e-mailed them. I got a quick response from kAAZ USA and this is the exchange:

And their response:Hi, my name is Colin and I am a moderator for www.mazda6club.com. Many of our members are approaching their warranty's end and are looking at how to make some considerable power or have started racing. Through all of our discussions, we always end up on the point that our V6 engines have no LSD to put whatever power we can make to the ground. So we are curious if you would have any interest in developing a product for our cars. Hope to hear from you soon.
Now I e-mailed Ray back asking if they'd be able to produce a torsen instead of clutch type for us, and am waiting for a response. So what do we think? Would some sponsors be willing to shoulder the burden of a few extra units to help us hit the goal?Hi Colin,
Thanks for your inquiry.
We actually at one point was about to produce the Mazda 6 units but due to
lack of interest or decision change at Mazda Speed, the project died couple of
years ago. They wanted a clutch type design over the torsen type they used for
road racing one season. So Mazda Speed sent us a sample open diff and axles
for us to design. Everything was going fine but project got cancelled.
We still have the sample unit so for us to do the drawing and production is
matter of time. The only problem is that Kaaz Japan will not make any new model
unless they can get a batch order of 30 units initially. As Kaaz USA we cannot
carry all 30 units as inventory.
If you can get a group of 20 buyers together, we don't mind stocking 10 units
as our inventory. The lead time from start to finish will be approximately 90 days.
The unit price will be between $950 ~ $1,100.
