    thats like that phantom lsd. it just puts pressure on the two gears to even them out(kind of like forcing them to move at the same speed). why would you need torque distribution? changing it will make your car torque steer when accelerating.

    I believe the Twin Trac is what Phantom Grip copied from- maybe it's the other way around. It doesn't matter- they're very similar.

    The friction / binding plate wannabe LSDs do work in more than a straight line, and they are not the same as welded diffs. They work- the only problem is that quite a few people have problems with breaking their differential gears with these things installed, and they do work by either rubbing against your gears or binding them together.
