there is a "lokka" you can use....
www.4wdsystems.com ror something

most people just use LSD's or minispools.
And yeah of course lsd/spool/airlocker will give you more traction off the line then any single spinner diff..

australian LSDs suck the cawk hardcore...all they do is wear out (overuse or underuse) and LSDs are unpredictable because you can never be sure thats its gonna behave the same way everytime... thus a mini-spool is the answer. cheap and strong and PREDICTABLE... yes they're illegal but cops and peds haven't got a clue, you can turn right in front of one and as long and ur going slow and not flooring it like a hoon, they wont look twice (most times then dont even look once)... just remember than you'll go thru tires faster, not because of the scuffing (which get da respect bro) but because you can't control yourself and you always wanna tear it up :D
