Travis-
Thanks for the reference. Printed some stuff out (not just the LSD bit!) for later 'review' at a quieter moment.

Re: LSD

I have been running the Phantom Grip in my E-Prepared Manta for 1 1/2 years with no problems. I started with the lightest spring (least amount of lock) and have since changed it to the middle spring (more lock). The change to the heavier spring did introduce a little bit of understeer, but greatly reduced the inside wheel sping exiting tight corners.

BTW, the Phantom Grip looks an awful lot like the unit Rally Bob used to sell.

Think it would be of any real use in a street car?

Absolutley. With the LSD, you will be able to put the power down easier, not only in dry conditions, but in wet and slick conditions. I cannot think of any negatives.

I do not know of anyone using this in a GT. I do know people using them in a street Manta and an FSP autocross car and 1 considering it in a street/track Toyota Celia (RWD). If I still ran a Manta on the street, I would use one.

Rally Bob probably knows of someone using this type of LSD in a GT. You might try posting your questio on the Yahoo Classic Opel Forum.

Wish I could be more helpful.

P.S. BTW, I am not affiliated with Phantom Grip.

Phantom Grip Testimonial

Have a read of this article on the ClassicOpelsVault site. Open the folder called "Phantom.doc" (fourth from the bottom).

http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/ClassicOpelsVault/files/

Oh, you might need to be a member in order to access the site; if it won't open, go to the home page at:

http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/ClassicOpelsVault/

and sign up.

Somewhere I have seen a list of the various differential ratios of the different models and years; if I find it, I will post the list or the link.
