I found ours on ebay. The guy I bought it from was in a small city in Russia about 100 miles from the Mongolian border. It was a hell of a deal.

We've been using that trans and lsd in the the old car for some time now. It was totally game changing. There was a whole bunch of cars that out power us and used to just pass us with impunity. We get so much more traction out of the corners which means a huge head start, particularly out of really slow corners. We also loooove the lower final drive. We used to reasonably be able to drive the whole course at Sears Point in third, except exiting turn 11. Now we can make use of 2nd, 3rd, and 4th! That means we can keep the motor in the power band much better. I swear it was better than adding 20 hp.

Today Jason, Tedd, my wife and my son all pitched in and we painted the car black. This is in prep for our new theme, which shall remain a secret for now.



We painted using a 50/50 mix of rustoleum flat and rustoleum semi-gloss, with a little white in there to keep it from being completely black. We diluted it with about 1 part acetone to about 2-3 parts paint and rollered it on with foam rollers. The thinned rustoleum is supposed to flow enough that it smooths out pretty well. In full sun it dried so fast that it was leaving tracks from the roller. It's black but it ain't pretty. But we got it done in about 4 hours.

I've never actually seen anyone that has the Cusco LSD on any H/F trans let alone in a cb. I just keep seeing quaife, wavetrac, mfactory, and OBX.

Sucks you didnt get a picture of what that diff looked like.

Oh, I have pictures. I spent several days studying all the different ways it could be configured before I assembled it. It is a steel football sized chunk pure awesome.

I'll dig up some of the photos and post them here later.

For some reason that I'm missing, I'm having trouble linking to photos right now. So I made a page on my race blog with photos of the internals of the LSD.

We are heading to Buttonwillow. It'll be our first time there.

Awesome! I missed the deadline yesterday, but I emailed today and I'm sure they'll let us sign up late.

I'll be there with my brother (who's a stunt driver, he's the main driver/coordinator for John Wick 1/2 and Baby Driver and a bunch of other movies) and some of his stunt driving friends.

I can't wait to meet you guys, should be a great time! Lets try and set up our pits next to each other.

Buttonwillow is pretty much my home track so since it's your first time you should check out my videos for the right lines to take in the Accord.

Hows the new car coming along?

Fantastic news! It should be fun. I seem to recall you raced your accord at Sonoma once. What was your team fast lap? We can make competing highlights videos of all the times we see or pass each other on the track.

The car really isn't coming along at all. I owed my family a vacation, that ate last weekend. My son was Seymour (the star) in a local production of Little Shop of Horrors. My Dad came to town to see it and we saw every show. That ate up a weekend. I had to work most of a weekend before that. I got a few minor things done that saturday. It does drive, but right now it would not pass tech inspection. I've got part of tomorrow set aside and most of sunday. I hope to get some of the big items off the to do list.

Tedd needs to get a new harness bar welded in. That's the main thing I worried about. We lowered the seat from the previous owner and now the harness bar is above the seat shoulder holes and lemons rules require that the straps go straight back or as low as 15degrees down. Other than that we have a variety of prep tasks and I want to install a fire suppression system.

I never took the Accord to Sonoma, I've just raced there with our GoPro BMW E28 a couple time. I dodn't remember the fastest lap, but it was fast because that BMW had at least 225hp lol

Yeah I can't wait to get the video

It would be hard to summarize all the work done recently.

We've got just a few things left, but they aren't too small. It is at the shop now getting new mounts for the harness welded into the cage. We moved the seat down and a bit over and with a bit of a rake so the harness straps were going up! That won't pass tech. He's going to mount a tow bar too. The body shop next door is going to pull out the fender damage caused by one of the wheels falling off while towing it up there (facepalm). All of the too many cooks forgot to tighten all the lugs.

I have to install the fire suppression system.
I have to install new front rotors (see stupid towing incident above).
I have to finish install my cool-seat system.
I have to finish the splitter and add a spoiler on the rear.
I have to get the seat out and the new belts in.
