EF/EL diffs aren't exactly new....

Burnouts will destroy any E, A or B series LSD pretty quickly and they'll eventually lose most of the LSD tension.

You do burnouts and wonder why your diffs don't last..

my diff has lasted 17,000 kms soo far with plenttttttttttttttttttttttttttty of BIG burnouts. Occasionally it will single out in the wet around right hand corners, but other then that it's pretty good.

Rebuilt 3.73:1 LSD EF diff. But yeah I'm not expecting it to last too much longer. Will look at having a lokka installed when it gives up the ghost.

Just wandering, for all you guys who want to keep your LSD, when you go to the drags, do you avoid the burnout pit? And if so, do people consider you being a tool for not doing one? Just wandering.

Sometimes you can drive around the wet patch, but mostly your back tyres end up getting wet so you gotta do a quick burnout.

Who cares if people think your a 'tool'? Are they gonna pay for your car if you blow something.... :)

I will consider you a tool for not doing one, sorry cam LOL
You can go around the pit, the main problem on Ford drag days is C*** with SS diffs dragging water up from the box, so as you creep out of the water, one wheel hits traction, and the other is still on water. Kill diff quick.
