Its got to do with the differential, the gearbox is equipped with factory LSD which is viscous type, it has its own limitation & tends to slip in higher power output hence torque steer, i am replacing that with Helical LSD (gear type- Quaife) that LSD will take all the abuse & deliver torque to front two wheels on 50-50 % basis & its rated up to 1000Whp!

mean time working on my DMS Coilover setup on OHC by doing some custom fabrication to improve the Handling of OHC. will update on this thread with pics and report, will be very interesing to read.

Thats a nice upgrade for the LSD.

Are you using the 40mm gold series from DMS coilovers? Amazing choice, do you have to alter the bolts of the strut mounts.

Awaiting for the same!!

on another note. when we custom fabricate suspension installs that is either installing struts inside springs etc doesn't the small differences between the 4 suspension points make any difference?

@crazyd, i have got 50mm gold series.

@navpreet, its custom fabricating only on top, it will give me options to adjust "Camber" settings, which is fixed otherwise on a OHC.

50mm gold series are the rally shocks. Good choice for race applications. Hope you find a good setting for street. But the good thing about DMS is that they have adjustablility to even drive on snow, which might work for our streets.

Adjustable camber plates also added? This is gonna be one serious contender when ever you drag it. If you dont ming please share how much camber,castor are you using. How much diff from stock and what the effect? Keep an eye your tyres.

So when someone is custom fabricating the upper point then how can one be sure that the left and right sides are 100% exact in angle and size.i mean if one shock in installed at say 10 degrees from the vertical and the other at 11 degrees then will it make a difference in the behaviour of the car?

Default 350+ WHP @ 9300 RPM with Speed 93 octane fuel.!

Successfully tested with 93 octane fuel, the car runs on 93 octane fuel for up to 17 psi boost with bit more power than earlier dyno graph with 9300 rpm rev limit.
The test was carried out using Bharat petroleum "Speed 93" octane fuel filled from a regular pump. No additives were added.
Will test on dyno once i have my new differential installed.

@ navpreet There will be marking in degrees on upper mounts.

@yatinC New set of DMS 50MM gold should cost you anywhere between 1.5-1.9L landed, depending from whom you buy.

Congrats Jitu!
How about the update on stiffening the suspension and chasis that you were talking about?

I would say expensive but if that what it is to keep the car ON TRACK then its worth every penny.

Kaushik (Ksmvtec) is uploading the video but its not high quality.

Jittu I'm sure you know what the Quaiffe is going to do to your car right?

This is the time to go ahead and increase that downforce cause that thing is gonna fly!

to sum it all up in one word ---> IMPRESSIVE!

Good call on the suspension, very nice. You can also speak to Jamie and asked him to fab whatever custom components you need.

There is no Speed 93 available any where in India, according to a BPCL source of mine. How did you get it? I am looking for it and can't seem to find it anywhere in Bangalore.
