I thought this would be a good thread as I don't think I've seen them all talked about at the same time. There are various different LSD types from helical/torsen, viscous and mechanical. Which one is the best and why? What do you run?
Absolutely True, really was just trying to incorporate some first hand feedback on the product. As I said I haven't tried anything else. I've been very pleased with the product and have heard very negative things on the quaife from a pretty popular shop outside of Philly without naming names. Then your ranking of the product only supports that.Any LSD is going to increase traction, you have power going to both drive tires instead of one. Wavetrac is not going to do that better than other other. Thats just basic limited slip 101
Ok I gotcha now. Do you think their wave technology is a gimmick, even on a road course?Huh? I thought it was pretty clear in my post. We found no differences between wavetrac, and Mfactory. Mfactory costs less, that would make it a clear choice between them two
We have ran them all except OS-Giken, you left one out though. The factory BMW Motorosports LSD are gear types (like MFactory Wavetrac, Quaife), and honestly as good or better than all of the above. For gear types, wavetrac, and M-factory are the two best options. Nothing but issues with the Quaifes we had. As sole clutch type in the group, OS Giken. If you have a track car they are great, honestly the best. You just need to do research, they basically admit they are not for elevated power levels. Even at 500+WHP you stand a good chance of breaking it. A lot of opinions abound, we have ran basically everything. The list to us is this. Best to worst
1. Factory BMW motorsport diff found in M3, M5, etc
2. M-Factory (we have found no difference over wavetrac, price makes them higher on our list.
4. OS-Giken ( not viable much over 500WHP)
