You get what you pay for. I pulled my tranny out in my garage. It can be done.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by honda_certified:
its too much for the kaaz and the quaife lsd. the phantom is mostly to do burnouts (prelude vtecs are one tire fryers) and to gain 60 ft times? i know the prelude vtecs has zero space to get the tranny out. peace</font>
Did you not see my original post?<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by honda_certified:
so what do you think i should do - phantom, cheap way, easy lsd or the other lsds - more reliable, better quality, but same features or is that true? thanks </font>
The Phantom Grip does not use clutches, or friction rings. It achieves a limited slip by exerting force one the planetary gears in the stock differential (more friction = less slip, but more friction also means more wear), which limits the amount of slip. It cannot be classified as a clutch type or torsen LSD.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by aklucsarits:
The Phantom differential is a clutch-pack type. It has friction disks that wear with use. Clutch type differentials need to be rebuilt periodically.
The Quaife differential is a true auto torque biasing gear-driven unit. As it is gear driven, it does not require rebuilds at regular intervals.
Performance-wise, they will be similar initially. But as the Phantom's friction surfaces wear, it *will* require being pulled from the tranny and rebuilt eventually.
Yes, KAAZ.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by aklucsarits:
My bad. I thought the Phantom was the clutch pack one.
Which one has clutch packs then? KAAZ?
Do you realize how hard it would be to drive a FWD car if the diff was welded together? Remember on domestics they're tying the rear axles together. Ever been to the track and see one of those cars chirping the tires while turning? it's because the one tire is moving faster then the other so it "skips" try doing that in our cars...<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by honda_certified:
in domestic they say that welding the spider gears together, it will work like a locking differential. do you think this will work on hondas? any body got hookups to get a quaife lsd, cuz im broke?</font>
