but as for getting off the line, forget acceleration, getting the car moving quicker then LSD is a bonus, u can stall it up higher than an non lsd would allow for, so yes you would have a better start then an non lsd counterpart assuming that normally ud be getting a bit of smoke action. As for going from 10km/ph to 100 no it wont make a snifter of difference unless again u had traction issues when changing gears. Hope that cleared up the small debate going on here, acceleration off the line (0-10km/ph) vs acceleration while moving (10km + -> x)

Fuk your car is loud, sorry out of everything you said your name made me think of your car and how it makes ya shake when ya hear it, CHRIST! :lol:

if u went to a 3.7 or 3.9 gear ratio i reckon you'd notice a difference in acceleration

Isn't traction one of the most important ingredients for fast acceleration? Just stirring...

3.7 would be nice, i'd have to get an lsd fitted if i got that though because of the increased wheelspin at takeoff. Do you think with that change the xr should be able to pull infront of that new holden sv6?

True, but usually people don't account for that into equations as if you've got a car that can loose traction easily, then obviously you need fatter rears. :P Directly, traction does not relate to acceleration but I can see where you're headed.. All depends on how much power you have.

You'd think they would be the same, or wider

On my wheel it says 245/40zr18. I'm pretty sure the 17's are 235/45. Does that mean the 17's are wider?

no your 18's are wider 245/40zr18 245 is the width 40 is the profile and 18 is the diamerter (size) 235/45zr17 would be a narrower wheel thats not a high in profile, and 1" smaller in diameter
