one side has more power?
Friday, March 21, 2014 5:56 PM
so it got warmer and i started doing some burn outs and i noticed only one side smokes and theres a black line on the road from only one side. is it possible that the other wheel isnt getting the power it should so its not spinning with the intensity like it should? possibly the cv axle doesnt catch right and doesnt spin my wheel?

Our cars have a open diff stock. So the wheel with least resistance will spin.

LSD can fix that.

I've been pleasantly surprised by the amount of 2 wheel peels I've been able to pull off with the stock tranny. In 2 weeks I'll never have to wonder again

Its called limited slip, there are possi traction kits that can be bought and installed into the tranny. You notice the guys saying they can do both are ones that have done big mods to their cars. Its how the car work stock is limited slip diffs.

Also the tranny. Getrags do a much better job spinning both tires. The isuzu does not do as well. I also feel that is why the isuzu likes to explode diffs.

My car will spin both, however sometimes you can tell by the marks that are on the pavement that one spun harder than the other. Its pretty equal usually and this trans is just a junkyard one I threw in (i broke the one with my TG insert in it :/ ).

My car spins both tires more than not as well. Nothing is wrong with your car man no worries!! :-)

This is exactly what's happening, and as said, it's normal for an open differential. A limited slip insert will improve this, as it forces more power to the other wheel instead of letting the one side get most of the power. A jack shaft will also help slightly. The two together will make a big difference in overall performance and driveability. These items will not only keep that one wheel from spinning (unless you make a lot of power, it will result in you not being able to burn out the way you currently do, because both of your wheels are now pulling the car forward--the whole purpose of the LSD insert), but you will get less torque steer (when you get on the gas, you notice the car pulls to one side?).
