Wavetrac LSD

I just recieved my Wavetrac LSD 2 weeks ago. It is exactly what the car needed. I began adding mods 2 yrs ago and pretty quickly became unhappy with one wheel spinning too much. This is a must do mod. I went through Leo at Eurotek Tuning. Las Vegas NV. I am adding a New Tial BOV tomorrow.

Been running a wavetrac for almost 3 years.

Launches like a bi*ch

A wavetrac is a differential for a car. A quaife [sp?] is like a vagina fart.

Well aware, fellow Simi-dweller. Just enjoying a little humor while "playing dumb".

Yup, right off Yosemite. I thoroughly enjoy the Santa Susana pass as an unnecessary detour on my way home every day.

LSD is #1 upgrade for a 335, nice pick!

Do the M3 subframe bushings and Rogue Engineering toe arms as well. The rear end still torque steers without them. M3 subframe bushings keep the rear planted and the toe arms prevent any changes in toe. A little pricey but ... worth it, IMO. Night and day difference accelerating.

Getting my Quaife installed at VAC on Friday morning... couldn't afford the labor for the subframe bushings! I'll have to do it next time =/

Can anyone swag the labor hours for the subframe bushings? Kicking myself for not doing that when the LSD was installed last month

don't feel bad... Installing an lsd and the rear subframe bushings doesn't save much on labor... The only common procedure is putting the car on the lift.
