Tony, If the heat over time, gets to your springs. Would the springs from PG tuning kit work in yours? Just a tought.

I haven't been active on any of the forums for a while, but it's nice to see I get a mention "I've heard it gives the car extremely heavy steering and one Grp A rally guy installed power steering (wimp)." Cheers Kyle!! In the end I never actually fitted the power steering (it's a long story!).

On the road, the car is an absolute nightmare to drive but on a rally stage it is absolutely awesome!! Once you start pedalling the car it is a joy to drive with unbelievable traction in all circumstances. Last time out was in torrential rain and the car lead its class comfortably against pretty formidable opposition, finally being beaten by a RWD Mini with an R1 motorbike engine fitted...when the rain cleared!

These diffs are relatively expensive but I would definitely recommend them, if only they offered some mods to make the gearbox more reliable...

Last year I was looking for an inexpensive LSD. I purchased a PG kit and installed it in my race car. I was not very impressed by the upgrade. It did reduce wheel spin a little but nothing close to what I expected.

This year I've welded the diff. The racing season has not started yet, but all the testing I have done with the car are giving me some positive responce. The only problem I have had so far is burning clutch, I'm working on a solution for that now!

Keep on drifting!

Hey guys....
I have heard a few stories about phantom grip style LSD's, though ive never had one so I cant say for sure. My LSD I managed to get pretty cheap, hows $350 AUS and a SOHC box sound? For a COMPLETE GTi gearbox and LSD.....its pretty tight but it does the job. As for the guys who complain about heavy steering..I know how you feel. Just give it more gas through corners and it will take almost anything you can throw at it!

Will simulated lsd work in drag?? I need to lock wheels when racing on dragstrip, but on street I don't need a lsd. Just on straight... Estimated power is 300HP, traction control and mickey thompson's :roll: Will it handle such torque?

this diff is a gear type setup, im not 100% sure how it works, would MADZUKI or anyone else who knows help me here? i think it is the diff that is available in japan as an option on the cultus.

Sorry I didn't reply sooner, time is scarce lately! Kyle had a set in his car and he said they worked good and then didn't appear to work as well. He thought that the heat might have depleted the strength of the springs. I know of people running these in pretty fast Turbo Forsas with no problems, HOWEVER they have MONSTER springs.
