      V.L.S.D. stands for Viscous Limited Slip Differential.
      Basically it acts alittle better than open gear, but not as good as regular L.S.D. It acts somewhat like a broken L.S.D.
      I was planning on getting V.L.S.D. because its better than nothing, and like 250$$$.
      But kinda hard to find. It came equipped on some 95-98 240sx se.
      You can get it from... !

            but how does it work??does it use a clutch plate or what and is it a 1-2 way slip.

              it's a 1 way and it's a series of plates enclosed in a Viscous fluid(hence the V) when one wheel slips the fluid begins to turn the wheel on the opposite side, the system only works after one wheel begins to slip. it's great for the street but lacks reliability for the track. it also has some issues working just as you start driving (when it's cold out) But if you dump the clutch from a standstill you will get both tires to grab and leave some nice lines.

                  i beleive it was an option for your model, easy way to tell. drop the clutch in first with the throttle down and see if both tires turn.
