    Which LSD to choose

    So I won this JB4. This is going into the car this weekend.
    This off course means my next mod is coming up really quick.
    I will need more traction with all these new horses, and I want to get rid of that anoying yellow TC light which is allready blinking at me all the time, and I suspect this will become worse Click here to enlarge
    I've done some reading and as far as my research went I found 2 viable options, which to my surprise are both available in the Netherlands, which is not essential, but conveniant.
    The options are :
    Wavetrac
    Quaife

    Which would you recommend and why?

    Quaife is what I recommended. Its more expensive but from what Harold told me he had a few Wavetracs shipped back for warranty issues already. Quaife has had nothing.

    Thanks Matt. I think I'll go with Quaife. Funny enough, Wavetrac being fabricated in the US, it is more expensive here than Quaife

    Yep. Ever since he helped me tailor a setup specific to Dans E93 (RIP) I have been pushing my customers towards his products. He knows his stuff and to be honest there isn't anyone who can match his customer service and experience in that field. Well except maybe the heavy hitters like IND or something...

    The wavetrac does have one advantage over the Quaife, I think it was more suited for extreme road racing use Harold had mentioned, but with the fact it doesn't have the oiling groove on the shafts, maybe it negates this advantage a little?

    For drag racing and your average autox/DE/club racer event, Quaife should fill the needs you want with no complaints.

    I prefer Wavetrac for extreme slippery ice that I run into a couple of times a year.

    Is it the Wavetrac that can operate with 1 wheel in a zero traction situation?
