I dont mean to sound like a flamer or anything, but a LSD is not going to help you with that problem. A LSD is gonna control wheelspin to get you moving instead of burning rubber.

Say what? How are you getting any big amount of wheelspin? Driving on gravel or what?

If you are getting tourque steer, then there may be something wrong with your car. I think that's been pretty well taken car of on newer FWD cars.

I autocross my car, and I have to admit, the 7th generation civic, has massive outside wheelspin under hard-cornering....

I have full-coilovers, strut-bars, 225/45 potenza-S03's, and the outside tire still spins. Probably more now than when I was stock...hehe [IMG]i/expressions/laugh2.gif[/IMG]

Oh well, I'm gonna try an Integra DC-5 Type-R 22mm sway bar, so that I can drift the back a little more through the turns....
