air lock diffs, I WANT 1!!
When i was waiting to see the doctor the other night i was reading a 4x4 mag. It had an ad in their advertising air lock diffs.
They run like a normal open wheeler but when u start to get busy in the mud/sand etc you can fully lock them up!
I reakon this would be HUGE in street machining if they could make them strong enough.
Having really tight LSD sucks to drive day to day with, noisy clunks, shuddering etc when u turn tight or slowly. and having your diff open wheel cause it isnt tight enough is worst.
With this when u wanna have a little bit of a play you could just flick a switch and it is locked for perfect traction, that nice 2nd gear drift out of a corner, donuts etc, and when you are driving normally just have it run open wheel nice and smooth.
I reakon it is a great idea!

To avoid breathing difficulties during hard acceleration, it is recommended that female passengers should remove all tight fitting undergarments before entering the vehicle!
