Floggin the EA

I have a 4spd auto mpi eas. The thing has the old diff that only spins one wheel so the right one smokes up. I have to use the brake to get it spinnin and smokin. I have a few questions is this gonna root my diff and also how much damage or stress is this putting on my gearbox, brakes and anything else ? Im doin this stuff legally so thats why i wanna know :)

Re: Floggin the EA

well it stresses all the parts of ur car.
doing it a little won't damage ya diff.
but doing it all the time will cause issues.

Re: Floggin the EA

Unfortunately the transmission, diff and rear brakes will most likely have problems ahead of time, depending on whether it is a one-off.

Re: Floggin the EA

"Abuse" of any part of your car will cause it to wear quicker. How much abuse your car/parts can take is too hard to say. You could do 1 burnout and wreck your diff or you could do 1000 with out any sign of failure.

*mental note - don;t buy ss-gt's EA :-p

once or twice probably won't be that bad... but then again, you could pull a ripper and blow the diff/trannie in seconds... all depends on the condition of your driveline etc... and luck

Re: Floggin the EA

a few of my mates do it all the time, and i mean nearly everytime we go for a cruise. They havnt had any troubles really, but u just wonder how the hell their cars stay alive. One of my mates has an XD and he can only chuck a burnout in reverse hahaha, but its funny coz he buys stockies and blows them all the time, its entertaining, ive never really done it in mine, but i really wanna try, but i respect my car too much. (even though i flog it everytime i drive it) har har har
