Cusco 1.5-Way Type-RS LSD for FK8 Honda Civic Type R

Cusco believes that the Limited Slip Differential systems should work to provide drivers with least amount of compromises, and fine-tuning in all aspects to cater a precise character that a driver might need for a very wide variety of motorsport stages. It should not simply lock the differential, but be available to lock when needed, and not lock when it isn’t optimal to do so. Cusco LSD provides many elements that can be tuned and tailored, and have mulitple system configuration to match the character of how it locks, when it locks and releases, and adjustability of strength of the lock, and responsiveness of each of these factors.

1.5 way (45 deg. / 15 deg. Default, 1-way 45 deg. Optional)
Initial Torque 3-5 kgf-m

The Cusco Type-RS LSD is Suited for Drivers Who

  • Prefer lower maintenance on racing-grade LSD units.
  • Prefer more immediacy in actuation response right from the initial lock setting to maximum preset lock rate.
  • Drive lower-powered, compact cars in competitions
  • Does a lot of standing-start drag racing and short track, autocross with light-trigger starts

Initial lock setting is more consistent and evenly spread over friction plates over traditional LSD systems.

Inner-coil spring design allows for less initial lock settings on friction plates than traditional LSD to achieve similar response.

Springs keep the friction plates in contact evenly and aids to prolong the life of the plates, while also preventing deformation of plate surface.

Choice of 2 cam ramps on the pressure plate for tuning.

Ability to be adjusted for initial torque settings via positioning and number of coil springs.

Vector of force applied by the pressure plate is the same as the initial lock springs, making the LSD actuation consistent.

Chattering of plates are minimized in the RS Type design with consistent pressure across the radius of the friction late surface.

Oil-through design ensures positive pressurized flow of differential gear oil through all parts of the system.

The Bulletproof Automotive website contains many thousands of products purchased in multiple different currencies. All of the prices are entered manually and accurately at the time of entry. Due to the consistently fluctuating international exchange rates, at times prices may not be able to be honored at their original intended rate. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, unfortunately our website is unable to compensate dynamically for what can at times be volatile changes in the cost of items due to currency values fluctuating, changes in prices from suppliers, changes in shipping and import duties, and other factors. Rest assured that any order you place on line will be at zero risk to you in this area. If in the event your order cannot be fulfilled at the original intended website price we will offer you a 100% refund, no questions asked. We will continue to do our best to maintain updated prices and we will always continue to offer our price match guarantees as well to ensure our prices are always the best for you. In short, prices may change without notice. It is always advised to give us a call prior to placing your order online to confirm availability and to confirm current pricing.
Items that are in stock in the US, either at Bulletproof’s warehouse or at a supplier’s warehouse, are generally delivered within 7-10 days. Special order items from overseas take considerably longer. As a courtesy Bulletproof offers delivery estimates to our customers which take into consideration manufacturer availability and shipping schedule. These estimates represent our best guess based on previous orders from the manufacturer and do not in any way imply a guaranteed delivery window. Many manufacturers work in a “just in time” inventory system and often take 2-20+ weeks to produce an item once an order is submitted. All deliverable items are then sent to our Japanese warehouse. Bulletproof ships a minimum of one full ocean freight container every month from Japan, oftentimes more than one a month. Ocean freight takes an average of 4 weeks. Typically it breaks down to one week in Japan for paperwork and customs, two weeks by boat and one week in US customs/clearance. Due to the wide number of variables between manufacturer and shipping schedules, delivery estimates are simply just that – estimates. We attempt to estimate conservatively and we usually deliver faster than our estimates suggest. It is not Bulletproof’s policy to guarantee delivery time of any special order item, this is impossible for us to do. By ordering you acknowledge that there is no required delivery ETA and an order may not be canceled or altered due to manufacturing or shipping delays, all ETA’s are provided as a best guess only.

We do pricing a little differently on our JDM brands and we believe in making things simple and clear. No hidden fees or surcharges. Every price you see includes the shipping cost to our office in Los Angeles, California and all the associated taxes/duties/fees for bringing the products into the US. The only shipping you ever pay is from our facility in the US to your location. Be wary of resellers that don’t include the cost of international shipping in their pricing on JDM parts. While we believe we’ll always have the lowest all-in price on JDM products, we offer a price match guarantee for all authentic parts purchased from authorized dealers as well. For many international customers, it’s much more affordable to ship from the USA than from Japan directly, as the air freight and ocean freight costs are typically much less. However, for customers looking to ship directly from Japan outside of North America, or domestically in Japan, we can provide pricing specifically for that scenario. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any pricing questions or concerns. Please email us at with any inquiries.
