    Okay I have gone through 4.....thats right 4 tires on my front right side. I have 99 si rims on my rex and they ride like a dream. for the longest time i couldnt figure out why that tire went down so quick. then it hit me the other day.....when i turn one of me tires slips....so easy way to fix that is get a lsd right? right. well anyways. I was wondering if I should just go but another tranny with factory lsd in it. Or should i get a aftermarket and have a shop put it in?

    OEM LSD B series cable transmissions are hard to find... I would go aftermarket with a Quaife if you can afford it. If you can't - you could go with a Phantom Grip. I know people will flame me and you for saying it, but a properly installed Phantom Grip can actually do wonders for your car.

    By the way, LSD in bottle with dropper >>> LSD on stamps.

    Yeah, it might be hard to find a cable lsd b16 trans, i got one from hmo when i got my swap, now it's got a cracked tranny casing, which i need to fix soon.

    Are you certain you don't need an alignment?? I would have that checked before anything.

    If one tire slips every time you turn, and you have gone through 3 tires on one side to 1 tire on the other, you have a problem. Sounds like alignment to me. Unless you race an oval track or something.

    I've heared wonderful things about quaife style LSD's, worth looking into. I like the way they're designed.

    I love my quaife. Plus they are guranteed for life even if you race. Says so on the warrantee card.

    we have a Phantom Grip in our D-series transmission in drag only Civic and it works great, however, it will eventually eat away at the differential carrier where the side gears meet the case - this causes too much clearance between the gears, resulting in broken teeth on the gears and transmission quits working - we have had our Phantom for over 5 years and drove the car on the street and at the track for almost 2 years (about 15,000 miles) before turning it into drag only - have put over 400 1/4 mile passes on it - the differential finally broke about a year ago and we replaced the carrier and gears and it has been o.k. since - we have a ZC transmission and there isn't a Quaife available for it, or we would probably be using it

    Oh yeah man all the way. I was waiting for someone to take a crack at that. anyways. So quafie huh? No its not my alignment. I should know the tire place I goto checks it every month cause im back in there getting a new tire. Could it be that when i am out draggin my right tire grabs off the line? I was just thinking cause I lay down a nice patch when i jump off. come to think of it i dont see two of them very often just one

    Yeah it could definitely be your diff- the right axle is shorter, so you have less "spring" to wind up before the tire will break loose. The passenger side axle/wheel generally spins first.

    Im looking into a quafie but there 900. someone told me to go with one of those over a honda tranny with lsd stock. something about a quafie is gear driven and not clutch driven or something i dont know. anyone have a cusco or how ever it is?
