Absolute piece of $#!%!
Lifetime warranty my @$$!
Didn't handle a stock d16y8! Less than 1000mi and look what happened!
They still try to sell this crap on ebay.
Crap material, worst machinery!
Absolute no support.
Be aware!

Its OBX... honestly what did you expect lol Its not worth gambling with OBX.. ya some of there crap works but the metal they use is crap just like all knock off brands.

I just Googled OBX LSD review and the first thing that came up did the same thing as yours My OBX lsd Review/short and sweet///pictures added - Honda-Tech

It Pays to do some research before wasting money on crap parts that wont last.

Its good your posting this up though so other people will see OBX LSD is only good for a paper weight.

Sorry for your misfortune

Aquafina builds D series Transmissions with LSD diff for $699 shipped.

I got an OBX LSD in my z6 trans and its seen a full season of Solo and one track day of HPDE, still holds up fine til this day.

But even I acknowledge that OBX was a hit or miss, and I am glad mine was a hit. LOLOL

I don't even feel bad for you.

Or anyone that gets shit OBX's.

It is KNOWN that some are shit, some aren't. RESEARCH probably would have saved you the hassle.

1) I'm not your bro, nor anyones bro.
2) OBX was out before MFactory. After Aquafina and I had QC issues with the OBX, he made the move on the MFactory D series.

Lastly, I suspect that MAJOR wheel hop from either the driver or a suspension issue is the root cause here.

Well "bro", you posted some bullshit review that EVERYONE here has seen a dozen times. You know where this "posted to aware new buyers" thread is gonna go? To the depths of forum hell like the rest of the obx is trash threads.

If anyone on this site buys an OBX LSD with hopes it's gonna be the best thing since cat chow-mein, they deserve to rip their trans apart in the first 3k miles.

If people, not just from this website, but everywhere would SEARCH, and do RESEARCH about parts, this kind of thing can be avoided.

This is YOUR FAULT for foolishly spending that kind of money on KNOWN JUNK, which you obviously didn't research or read about.

Since you don't care about our feelings, shoot OBX an email about how you pissed away $700 on their crap, and lets see if they care about yours. :lol:

Jackpot.

Driver error at its finest.

Whats with all the agression towards the guy. Its only another review on how the product still sucks in this day and age?

Should he researched before he bought an item? Yes.

Is the issue cause by him? Or just cause its OBX garbage? Maybe both? Who knows.

All in all, the review is just another up to date reminder of why OBX is a no no. So why are people so angry in hurr? Esp that redneck that likes to play with long sticks and balls. hrmmm?

If you people keep paying for shit products then they'll keep making them. Just look at the F&F franchise.
Truth, this goes for more then just LSDs, LCDs, cars, phones, houses you names it.
