    Default Auto test handling with LSD

    Hi Guys and Gals,

    Wondering if anyone has experience with autotest/motorkhana?

    I'm seriously considering putting in a Quaife LSD but am wondering how it will effect the low speed handling?

    Any help or advice would be great.

    Have you considered a Wavetrac LSD instead ... reportedly an improvement over the Quaife.

    Not done autotesting but in hillclimbing / sprinting a Mk1 & Mk2 Golf GTI ... the low speed handling / grip is good (never ran them without to compare), torque steer is acceptable. What positive caster can you run ?

    Have run a Mk1 on track with and without a Quaife ... handling under power out of the slow corners is so much better `with`.

    Hope that helps.

    Yes either a wavetrack or a quaife would be acceptable, I just wonder if either will cause massive low speed turning issues.

    Example doing a super tight turn around a witches hat.
