Ok when i first got my car the LSD was always kicking in when i gave it a hit turning left. Now it seems to only spin the inside wheel??? Is this normal?

Edit: The LSD still works in a straight line ect off the lights.

Holding it on the brake and launching off the line the back kicks right out. Also if i just hit it it leaves two small marks aka LSD :)

i figured! you lsd might be getting a bit worn and slipping a bit the easy fix is to just service it, change the fluid most come good after a nice fluid change.

castrol saf-xa its a synthetic 140 grade i think,

it has the friction modifier allready added to the oil that these diffs require

chaning diff oil can take lsd from zero to hero if you do it early enough but if the clutches are too worn then you need a rebuild. really if you do alots of burnouts and constantly drive it hard you should probably consider changing the oil regularly.
