obx lsd? opinions

has anyone tried one of these.

http://cgi.ebay.ca/OBX-Helical-LSD-0...item230568e57c

seems like a good deal, i have been doing some research on them and they seem to work well once you replace the belville washers and upgrade the bolts. the quaife is 3 times the price and cant see it would work better. i am doing the clutch soon so will be pulling the tranny anyways.

you'll notice a trend of most the members on here who look down upon this LSD, but NO ONE has ever used one.

It's more of everyone hoping on the "brand" wagon.

I say go for it! I have a few OBX products on my SVT, and they work perfect. They come with a life time warranty anyway!

1turbofocus has replaced a couple of trannies for people after thier SUPER G GREAT OBX lsd broke.....

Trusting a knock off of a header is one thing, trusting a knock off of an lsd in your $1200 tranny is another.

You do realize that for $200 more you can have a TORSEN lsd.... which is the one FordRacing uses in their WRC Focus.

Dont get cheap when it comes to parts that have the most stress put on them..........
