PostSubject: diff issues   Sat May 28, 2011 2:08 am

i know that there is a forum about which diff to get. but i would like to know what would cause a one tire fire? that is the situation i am in i have the passenger tire getting all the power and nothing on the drivers side. i think this is why i can power slide a left turn but when taking a right turn my steering binds when i put my foot into the gas. any thoughts on this?

Because you have an open differential and there is less weight on the right side of the car. Put a fat kid in the passenger seat and try again.

a welded diff sucks on a street car that gets driven alot do the both tires being LOCKED so the car will hop/screech when turning at low speeds. which would get very annoying driving as much as you do.

look into a cheap VLSD those can be had for $50-$200

if he delivers pizza he prob drives around town a lot and does a lot of sharp turns which would kill tires with it welded. either way he isnt doing that now.

i daily drive my coupe everyday with a welded diff and its not as bad as people think . as for the tires yes it will kill your tires but not as bad as people make it sound. my cheap federals on my enkei's i have had them for 6 months of daily driving an still have quite a lot of thread. but than again i do put like 250 miles a day or so.
