Just wondering how you go about putting a mini spool in, how much it will cost and it's worth while? cheers!

STOP doing burnouts then. There is no way known you could have chewed a set of tyres in 3-4 months. My tyres lasted over a year, DAILY driving it to work (plus a few fun hills runs aswell) and only ended up bald when i decided it was time for new ones and finished them off.

Get what you want. A spool is really only for a car that does burnouts, or needs traction at the drags/track. If your just getting a spool for the sake of having a spool, i don't think you'll benifit from it.

Nah not at all, thats the reason i want one more traction, but the more i read about it i think it's a waste of time in the 6, and was going to get diff serviced, replace bearings etc cause it's making a whineing noise so thought i could put one in while it's apart, thats all thanks anyway!

mate i drive it daily im pretty sure i know when my tyres are ****ed!coz of the camber the inside wears out heaps.and no i dont do burnouts unless i got stockies.all im saying is minispools are a prick
Theres something else going on there, or you bought budget tyres. I have a VP Calais, so the same shitty IRS (and no camber kit)

Your either driving very hard on your daily driving, or you have other suspension problems not related to the camber.

Yeah i wouldn't suggest a spool, an LSD will be fine for what you need. Burnouts kill LSDs, if your not doing any, the LSD will be fine.
