Default To much lsd lock-up? Nahhhh!

So I reshimmed the ole lsd and got to test it out today and I'll I have to say is dam!

Problem is I might have it too tight, I get mad tire scrub in slow turns (I kinda like as my mazdaspeed diff did this too) but I dont want to break anything (no ****).

I'm thinking alot of ppl have straight up posi diffs with no issues but this is a miata and I would be pissed if I broke an axle as they're a bitch to get.

So whatya think?? Roll with it or pull it and unshim it?

I'm thinking its going to **** with me at the first hpde (supposed to be tom but its to cold and snowy lol) then again it might wear in abit and loosen up.

Have you measured how much torque it takes to lock it up?

I haven't (dont know if you meant me or not) but I've been meaning to. Do you basically jack up one wheel and see how hard it is to turn the driveshaft?
