ALRIGHT so here is the situation. I own a 1980 280zx and i dont have $1570 for a cusco 2-way, money right now for a missile, or wanting to weld my diff (crazy right) I am planning to slide this thing at KC drift events with an open diff. what advice would you guys have for drifting with an open diff? what kind of techniques work best with this (unfortunate) setup?

Weight transfer, braking, using e-brake, and a lot of clutch kick

Weld it? :lol:
Open is probably better to learn on than an inconsistent diff.

But welded is the way to go. Always consistent 2 wheel spin. Only real downside is turn chirp, and you can't run a small spare.
Out of VLSD, Torsen (helical) I prefer the welded. Never driven a full clutch type.

Buy extra open diff and have it welded. Install it the day before the event and reinstall the open diff after event.

I'm looking at buying a Cusco 1.5 way possibly but that is quite expensive! but buying an ioen diff extra and welding it sounds like a good idea as well

I'm hoping to try out my 2-way this weekend, so I can tell you how the clutch-type feels.

As far as open-diff, clutch kicks are your friend. Just do what you can to keep the rear traction overloaded. I've streeted my 240 like that until yesterday.
