Hi guys,

Installed my LSD few weeks ago into my ED. The first week and a half it seemed fine, just not tight as I expected but I was able to take a 90 degree corner in the dry from standstill with no loss of traction and power oversteer with ease in the wet.

Then after trying it out again a few days ago in wet conditions, after a few goes around a roundabout (private area mind you, no traffic can get to it) all of a sudden it started pulling one wheelers.

I stopped then, tried an hour later thinking the diff may have been too hot but the same thing happened and it did not limo up. The diff will do a two wheel burnout in the dry though (tried a 1 second one for experiment).

My question is, is the diff stuffed and if so why? Will I have to buy another diff?

Thanks, Ryan



Racing an import is like competing in the special olympics.....even if you do win, you're still retarded.

They're a Girls diff.

rebuild, drop a darkie and they're stuffed again.

numerous diff places say they're weak, sure you can add more preload on the cones and it will aid, but they're not really a good burnout diff.

pfft... roundabout on a private road.



Carefree, we may not be number one, but we're up there.
