DAMM im so sick of hearing all this crap about spools. There not that Fu^%*# bad!
All you guys do is criticise!
YES they can be very very dangerous!!
(If your an idiot and cant drive!, you must be able to trust yourself first!)
IF your cars suspension is not set up to handle it
you will, Yes most likley crash it!!
Ive being driving around with a locked diff (3.73:1 minispool) for over 5 years now, 3-4 times a week! and you know what??I love it! the diff hasent complained, i change the oil every 30'000kms.
Ive got good stiff suspension i have also replaced every single bush with nolathane and both swaybars with whiteline units.
I always run 235/4517s nothing any thiner. And yes it chews thru them. But thats the price im willing to pay.
Now i would hate to think what a locked diff would do on thin tyres and standard height soft suspension
you would definatly have an accident!
Besides anyone who would lock the diff in a totally standard car is a total no-brainer.
But whats the value of your own opinion??
maybe you should only give a s**t about that!
Not what any other clown thinks!

Mate, i had an ED XR6 with Pacies, 2.5" mandrell bent exhaust, mild cam of unknown origin, manual, 3.45:1 mini-spooled, 235/45ZR17's Pedders suspension (K-Frame sat 82mm off the deck, stiff as, no body roll, stepped out before bodyroll stood a chance) all bushes had been replaced, up rated swaybays etc, it ended up wrapped around a sound barrier. NO 18YR OLD WILL BE ABLE TO HANDLE A SPOOLED FALCON CORRECTLY

I think it's funny that a 19 year old is bagging out an 18 year old for doing exactly what he did. Seriously, get over yourself.

"NO 18YR OLD WILL BE ABLE TO HANDLE A SPOOLED FALCON CORRECTLY"

I'd bet very good money that there are! Just because you couldn't doesn't mean it's impossible.

Well, my spool caused the car to step out this afternoon on the way to the track. WHY, cause it snapped the passenger side axle. Tyre wear is not the only issue. When repairing it, we also pulled the drivers axle, severley damaged, so i am up for new axles as of today.

I'm not bagging him out, i am trying to point him away from the spool to a better suited diff for a street car. And as for anyone being able to handle a spooled falcon correctly, the spool is unpredictable, you never know how far the car will step out until it gets to that point, and it can quite easily turn nasty and become a spin or worse

Strange... after all the abuse ive given my diff with 5 people in the car this hasent happend to me.......yet!
My diff builder said the 28 spline axels in the falcon borgwarner are the same axels the diff shops use in 9 inch conversions.. i think they might be slightly stronger then people give credit for....
Anyway... Brett sorry to hear you broke your diff. Im interested to know if you going to replace the axels with somthing better, stronger units??
Also how many kms did you get in before this happened?

I got 220000k almost to a tee. Spool went in at 215k. Will replace with stock 28 spliners for now. When cash becomes available a 31spline or 35 spline 3.9 detroit locker 9 inch will be fitted, but at $5500 fitted it will be a while before that happens

sorry to hijack thread but its already deviated from the original posts so i think it should be ok :S How do i weld my diff? JKS

I have a skidpan day coming up and was going to get my open wheeler rebuilt as an LSD, but now i am considering getting a lokka because APPARENTLY they are easy to fit and remove, they're strong and they will be alright to drive on the street for small outings (to the track and back). Reason I was thinking of this is because I don't really care about having an open diff for normal driving and if a lokka if that easy to change over I would be very willing to spend time fitting it every time i went to the track (only about once a month) instead of getting an LSD which would inevitably wear out quicker.

So the crux question is are lokka's as quick to fit as they claim. Thanks

If a spool is unpredictable, what the f**k IS predictable?
I think it comes down to this.
"Spools don't crash cars, f**k with spools crash cars".
Just because you couldn't get your head around one, doesn't mean no one else can.

I dont flog my car, but i do have over 600nm of torque available. My base torque with NO gas is 430nm from 3000rpm up to just over 540, and 500 to 650 on gas.
