How do you launch? How often? Do you drag race? Do you warm the tires up?

True.

I never broke mine in 4~5 years that my 92 was turboed, yet I know people that have broken their diffs in stock n/a cars.

clutch dump, prolly like once a week, im going to drag sometime soon when I can get up to atco, prolly wont warm the tires up (LSD doesent LS any more.. no point in warming one tire..)

Ive been running 9psi for like 3 months now, so far so good!

who knows. I think the worse abuse I do to it is when I powershift into 2ed, plus when it spins in 1st and wheel hops. No noises yet... now if I could just get the MS working..
