I just finished a round of upgrades, and I put in the TRD LSD. I have the VF kit and I can't put the pedal down coming out of the corners because the whole rear end slides out. Now, I'm on Direzzas that are half way through their life, and I'm not pushing as hard because I'm breaking in a new clutch and this is on the streets.

I know when I ran R888s with the open diff I could rocket out of corners without any traction loss. I thought the LSD would help the dunlops keep traction, but instead I just slide.

hmm.... Time will tell, and I still have the old diff.

Is it different then standard toyota LSD? Like is it clutch or viscous or something? I can still break the wheels pretty easily if the road surface isn't smooth. I'm talking city streets. Even at 50% throttle I can get the traction control to come on if the road is a little bumpy.

It's a helical LSD I don't know if it's different from the standard Toyota, or if the TRD is the standard toyota...

Throttle steer is a positive.. never really could do that with any car I owned before.
