They make all the difference. I get constant inner wheelspin even at 80 mph plus on my modded vRS.
Picking up another gearbox with an LSD fitted tomorrow so looking forward to great things!

ST170 does not have an LSD. I have driven them hard on track and can genuinely confirm they don't need an LSD. The whole package lends itself to good on-track FWD manners:

Progressive naturally aspirated torque curve which peaks at 5500rpm unlike turbo engines where torque jumps-in abruptly.
Revvy engine with peak power at 7000rpm.
Excellent chassis dynamics with great balance.
Large powerful brakes which are not prone to fade.
And best of all - ST170s are cheap as chips.

Don't fiddle with it and spend loads of money - drive it instead driving

Love the way the splitter wraps around the wheels to form the arches. Serious bit of kit that!

Here’s my wheezy little K series snot rocket.

Your Elise looks brilliant on those wheels. They just work really well with the overall look of the car!

Finished off my rad ducting and got the car out for a road test to make sure it basically wasnt a big air dam. Happy report its not! Doubt il get out for any TA/SLS events but hoping to get to a track day at Knockhill later on in the year!

Just like a big go-kart. You can place the front so accurately . They really are exceptionally good on track .

New track car that I'm fitting some obligatory mods to. It's gonna be a beast hehe



Tein Springs, grooved discs and some Mintex pads so far, already handles and stops way better than it did. Can't imagine I'll be overtaking many on the straights so corners will be where this thing thrives. Still, slowest track car I've owned.

Baronbennyt owns a blue Mercedes AMG GTR PRO and the photo shows it in the pitlane (Goodwood?). Seems perfectly valid to me bowtie

That looks fantastic. Pretty sure it goes well too, even on track.

Fair enough. As said previously, it should go well. I look forward to seeing it on track somewhere.
