View Full Version : stupid differential question

08-14-2002, 10:20 PM
well i was doing this really big burnout yesterday brake torquing it and then lifting off brakes and pealing out for like 40 ft. anyways the point is i have a base s13 no hicas or abs and so i shouldn't have a lsd, so shouldn't i just have one long black mark????? this is prolly a stupid question i know, im gonna put it up in the air tomorow and spin the wheels around to see how they move.

p.s. hopefully soon i will have a pic of me in scc, i am gonna fry my tires down to the rims, i am doing it as soon as my new wheels and tires come in right before i change them. anyways im gonna take a pic and send it to scc they seem to be fond of big burnouts http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif

tomorrow when you jack it up, just turn one wheel and see which way the other turns. same way=VLSD. opposite=open diff

or look at the diff., on the side it will say VISCOUS LSD..or something ot that effect

My open diff would always leave 2 black lines for the majority of the standing burnouts I did. If you're even slighty turned, one wheel will usually take over and spin wildly - Perfectly straight and both will spin.

I hope you do have one, though... - Brian

yeah i prolly don't have one i am just being hopeful http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif the thing is i didn't brake torque right away i popped the clutch and then hit the brakes and the hole car shifted sideways when i did this and then when i let off the brakes i was fishtailing alot. oh well we will see when i lift it up i guess. thanks for the help.

y do you wanna be in SCC, it is blowing up the 240 world w/ honda ricers, try to keep the Nissan world quiet, it's much better that way IMO.

yeah, people have been approaching me about wanting to buy my car past few weeks "hey i wanna 240, i been looking at the erebuni shogun kits, they're PHAT!" and talk of swapping the elusive "sr20det j-spec." As opposed to the a-spec super super elusive version.
