Hey all, I'm just considering installing a phantom grip lsd kit into my turboed 99 hyundai excel to get better traction but i dont really know much about them besides what they do... I tried doing searches but i still cant find much on them... Can anyone tell me how easy they are to install, roughly how much they are, are they even worth the price, stuff like that?

I dont know alot about them either, although I am interested. I do remember reading that once you put that in expect to break something else :ermm: If you dont mind a bit of wait I am going to be designing bolt on traction bars for our cars in the next two months. I will make a set for my car and test them out at the track.....

Phantom Grip was about 400$ with the upgraded spring kit. Installation was difficult for me because I am an idiot, and took about 15 hours to do (that includes replacing clutch, since I was all up in thar anyway). I've put about 15000 miles on the car since then, when I break something else I'll let you know.

So does it just go in when the clutch is taken out? how long do you think a good gearbox specialist should take doing it? Is traction much better now?

to instal the P.G. you have to disassemble the trany cause the part goes on the center of the diferential if you need some extra help you could do a search there where 2 videos demostrating how to desassemble and asemble a hyundai trans. here on the forum

as always, mixed reviews. consensus is that for cars with out any other option or if you don't want through down a grand on a proper LSD its acceptable. SCC put one in its 200SX project from a while ago. I was curious what the long term report would be but stopped buying that mag & its not updated on their site.

take a look at this thread from GRM:

would still do nothing for aiding an open diff - you'd still do a single wheel burn out, just a little smoother i guess. ;): regardless, thats really cool you're designing & making your own stuff - best of luck.

Actually I havent done a single wheel burnout since I've been f/i. I leave two tire marks all the way through first and second....
