is this the device that severely increases spider gear preload to give a lsd effect?

it work same way than plated/clutch style lsd but is not even close to the real lsd effect.. phantomgrip have them for about 300eur if i remember right..
imo only good for street use but since there is lot's of friction between diff and this "lsd" it probably wear fast and it's a lot of work to open gearbox and change it.. + spare parts cost + often oil change because of metalic/alu/.. in oil..

i bought helical (torsen/quaife/truetrac) lsd from guy from hungary (new for 600eur) and there is no wear parts + work just great!

you know how open diff work? well, there are 4 springs between those plates which keep spider gears from spinning..

check youtube.. open diff, clutch/plated style LSD, phantom grip lsd, helical LSD,...

Basically you're grinding 2 pieces of steel against the spider gears in an attempt to slow down the difference in speed between the two wheels.

yes if you lift one wheel and try to spin it this will prevent it from spinning.. until enoug force is applied..
but if there is no LSD allowed it will be clearly seen in driving difference.. you can't fool others with LSD, shorter gearbox or more powerfull engine.. all those things can be seen while you drive.. (shorter box or more powerfull engine can be seen in faster shifting to higher gear than others, lsd can be seen by going around corners in different way,..)

I mean if I use this set, if I jack the car up to lift 2 front wheels off the ground and spin the wheel, what would it be?

if you have both front wheels in air and you spin one, both will spin..

they work just not even close to real LSD..
it's waste of money to give 300eur for this if you can get nice torsen or plated LSD from Balli for around 600eur...
