hi there everyone,im not[[ boosting]]about this! it is a simple question i need to get some help with. i did a standing start burnout in a straight line the otherday,i turned the car around to go back and have a look a the rubber on the road,it looked like this. in first gear the two wheels spun second gear both where spinning i got into third gear and it went into a single spinner,would anybody know if this is the way the hydrtrac diff works it seems strange to me as it seems the lsd stopped working for some reason

From my limited knowledge, a Hydratrak differential is a LSD. However, it's a speed sensitive rather than torque sensitive LSD

Hydratrak limited-slip differential uses a cartridge-type
fluid coupling, which progressively and smoothly increases torque transfer to
the wheel with traction. This is in direct response to the reactive speed
difference between the wheel with traction and the opposing, faster rotating
wheel -- the wheel that is slipping. Thus, the more one wheel slips, the more
useful traction that is transferred to the opposing wheel.

The standard holden/BW lsd is a plate-type (act just like little sprung clutch plates) that locks up fairly rapidly and sharply if one wheel spins faster than the other. They can be taken out and torqued up tighter if you want less slip before it starts turning the other wheel as well. The downside is that they lock up just as sharply at low speed, which the viscous type don't, so the rear drifts out more easily if you provoke it in a corner at low speed - but fun as long as you're ready for it!
