what is it with me and driveline
well last night after the street machine cruise, i went out and had a good time in the town, then on the way home i stopped buy a mates house in the hills, his got a huge property and no neighbours for about 2kms, his also got this burnout pad and he asked me to arc up the tyres on it, so being so stupid i did (with no need of water either) and only one wheel spun for about 10secs then i jumped on and off the brakes and both wheels kicked sitting there for about 40secs at 4000rpm, then backed off to 3500rpm for about 30secs and decided to pull a couple of slow donuts. after that i decided to take off and all was sweet, when i finally got to a corner the back end was jumping all over the show, think it might be an axle, im planning after work tomorrow to take my car to get looked at, then call up limoscene and a couple of other places for diffs. ill most probably pick one up tuesday and then have it fitted by the weekend.
is this a common problem with ea's? this is the second diff and im half way (more closer to 3qtrs) through a trans in 1.5yrs. would a locked diff be more stronger? i got my last diff for 50bux only because i pulled it out my self, and my ex girl friends dad knows the guy at the wrecker.
how much are 3.45diffs and how hard are they to fit to ea's.
p.s this was all on a private property and if there are any problems with this post then mods do what you have to do.
