I would DEFFO say go for the diff. Lee explained about the astra then? Every person who has had a LSD put on has said that its one of the best handling mods they have done. Wheels stick to the road superbly.

That'll cost about 450-550 but its well well worth it. I want one Put that with a lightweight flywheel and its pickup much faster and handle well.

Yeah he told me about the Astra Sounds good..

As im having the brakes done anyway plus its my birthday just after i get it back Im gonna get some money, plus whatever i can save up.

I want to get a Manifold, full zorst system, UniChip, cams + pullies, headwork pistons etc... Then save up for THE BIG ONE :

Basically keeps the wheels turning at the right speed each side. So if your going into a corner the inside wheel is trying to spin the same on the outside which isn't great for grip (as one side is travelling more distance than the other). Diff makes the wheels so the inner turns less and the out wheel more so that maximum traction can be gained.

I'll find a site hold up.

No, id have thought most modern cars would have a diff that kept the wheels in line as Daimo mentioned?
