    I have a 90 model crx, that only weighs about 900lbs., how do I get both tires to pull instead of just one? :blink:

    900 pounds eh... dont think so. But to help out try lowering your tire pressure. Or maybe learn how to drive and feather the gas. What is your goal in the first place?

    Excuse my french but what the hell is LSD? I just bought the car wed.., dont know too much about it. Got it already set up for drag. It has a B16A Vtec w/5 speed. Runs low 8's in the 1/8 mile, could be better but it spins from 1st to 4th.not much off the line with the spinning action.

    if you're gutted and tubbed (wtf, its not real wheel drive), one would think that someone who can build a car to this stature would have not over-looked traction bars, limited slip differenetials, traction control modules, and, ohh at LEAST 500 pounds.


    go back to the bullshit forums at stupidhonda.com you won't find people who cater to "bragging idiots" here.

    ok uhh let me see take the passenger side axle and look inside to see if there is a bar inside the tranny di. If not then you have LSD. I've only look at it when the tranny was out but i think i'm right. Hopefully someone with more knowledge can explain better.

    If you're doing 1 wheel burnouts, you dont have an LSD, plain and simple. They run about $750 unless you get them installed with your tranny, as is the case for me. I bought my b16a SiR through hmotorsonline and had a KAAZ LSD installed for $300.

    Like B said, traction bars, good suspention, traction control, and a set of decent drag radials will all reduce your wheelspin.

    Its way easier to jack the car up, put it in neutral and spin a side. If the other side spins too you have LSD.
