    Also, some of the stuff they say rings warning bells with me.


    The design is only as good as the designer, regardless of the program used to design it.


    Seems to me, it'd be better off saying 'THE BOTTOM LINE IS THEY WORK'.


    :unsure:


    :huh:

    Shitty, get a real LSD if you want performance.

    thats not even a limited slip.

    all that device does, is wedge itself inbewteen the diff gears - kinda like sticking a screwdriver through a bicyle spoke.

    a phantom grip is about the same as a welded diff

    lol


    Sounds like a great performance mod -> pry has the same effect as welding everything together like a drag car.

    Its semi ok for launches, but it doesn't help you at all for turning.

    He never comes in here, but a certain user here has the Phantom Grip... and it rocks. Even after all I heard about them, driving his was a pleasure.

    seriously? you liked it? how about the up grade from stock, is it better driving? the cornering dispute, is that high speed back road turning or slow race track turning? i dont plan on racing my car for sport, just fun back road driving, how are they for that?

    Hello? Hellbert can't you read? How appealing does metal grinding on metal sound to you inside your transmission? Basically, everyone in this thread except one says ixnay to the Phantom Grip. But go ahead and buy it... as you really seem anxious to do so... and good luck to you. But it just doesn't get HondaSwap's seal of approval... so don't blame us if you have problems with using it. Well, maybe you can blame Celerity, but just not the rest of us. From an engineering point of view, the Phantom Grip is not at all healthy for the spider gears inside your tranny.

    BTW you didn't say what kind of car you have... but why spend $225 on crap, when for not much more, you can have a real LSD in your tranny? My B-series OEM LSD cost only $325 and my D-series LSD tranny was only $275.

    when that was said i was thinking it was like a spool. it does away with all the spider gears and everything. like one for a solid axle truck. i didnt realize it was like that. now that i do... to hell with them! i read on some other sites about them and i dont like the way they work...at all...i appriciate the responses though guys! later
