Single spinner. Still, its not just one wheel all the time. in the wet, the second whell will kick in easy enough, but in the dry it stays nice and stable. At a standstill, both wheels will go but.

A Limited Slip Diff will only reduce wheel spin -like it was designed to do. If your main aim with your car is to melt tyres then stick with a single spinner and go buy some cheap 2nd hand tyres.

And try not to hit any poles or people or my car! :shock:

I dont see why an EF/EL with 157fwkw wouldn't spin an 3.45 LSD. My old 3.0L VL commodore with 114fwkw would spin the 3.45 LSD with no problems when you wanted it too.

I've only ever had manuals though.

Simple, it will spin if you got narrow or s**t tyres on it!
If you got good tread or fat rubber you will have much harder time getting a chirp let alone a line - when i got my fbt the tyres on it were s**t, left I I lines almost everytime, now with new good tyres, im lucky to get a chirp unless on some smooth bit of road or its wet..

LSD isnt about leaving lines tho, its much more efficient of getting power o the ground, which is NOT what you want if you wish to leave black lines behind ya..

Simple.

Ride: ED V8

Location: driving under the sun........now!
WA, Australia

With 161kw my EBII XR6 Auto I had in '98 would spin on dry bitumen. It had a LSD as well.

It was a quick car, but just produced no torque off idle. It would do a brake burnout, but unless you used a brakes to load up the converter, it had nothing. I would suggest your EL would be in the same boat with not too much torque but good top end power!

Both my manual XR6's would light up the back tyres with about 2-2500rpm and a dropped clutch, but then as Hornet said, a VL Crummydore will do the same.

My old man's EB Fairmont Ghia V8 would spin the back tyres off the line but only for a moment before getting traction again. Just enough to walk a bit sideways before taking off!

Manuals are just so much more fun when you want to get up it!

Now I have a manual XR8, got the best of both worlds.

not sure if i have lsd or not yet as both spin quite often he he and its alllll kinds of sideways in the wet around corners even at 20kmhr... good tyres too

i have 215's on mine and i can spin them but i have cam work done to give it torque down low (apparently) around a corner its very very sideways with any power... just wish it was lower...
