Because I enjoy making you continue to concede defeat.

NO, it is not set up with the model in mind. Go to the OS giken website, which you refuse to visit, and check the facts. When you order the OS giken diff, you have to tell them what % lock up you would like. This is the same in the adjustable, and non adjustable diffs. With the adjustable ones, being the only user end modifiable unit.

We can take practicality out of the discussion if it's making you sweat. but as far as cost goes, you haven't explained what the major difference is between the Super Lock unit of OS Giken (the only one which we can even compare to wavetrac), and wavetrac, to justify the Large Price difference. I can't pay for the difference between a 1.5 way and 2 way diff because the difference is probably not even noticeable to 99% of the drivers that track their car.

No one is challenging your alleged experience, but exactly how many years have you spent driving at the track. I know I'm more experienced than you.

No, the OS giken is FAR less practical for anyone other than a professional race team to own. read what I wrote with care.

If you want best performance, you’ll find someone like me who understands exactly how they work and how to set them up, and get them to set it up for you.
That's your opinion backed with claims of years of dealing with clutch style diffs, not experience behind the wheel, at a track, once the installs were complete.

It will "work", but it won't move the vehicle, appreciably. We've seen videos of a vehicle with wavetrac fitted, and it moves the vehicle. Show us filmed evidence of the Superlock moving the vehicle

Lastly, here is video of a 335I at the track with the wavetrac fitted. Please tell me exactly how a superlock will improve his corner entry, exit, or any other aspect of his driving:
