drag racing a torsen boss

Grant 302

basic and well known psychic
Maybe. People seem to get really concerned when Torsen and slicks are mentioned together. They aren't known for being bullet proof with high HP cars, but I think with our stock power it would probably hold up okay for a while.
 
Yep, I wanted to see the responses first before I mentioned too much in my original post. I am switching to a one piece driveshaft. I want to see high 11's. It would be all stock except for the shaft/slicks.
So for occasional dragstrip runs with stock HP the torsen should be ok, huh ?.....cool!

Torsen diffs are designed for power down in the turn.

Unfortunately they are not a good drag diff. MANY have died drag racing. I have stopped going to the 1/4 mile because of this.

You will be fine using M/T's on the street with your current set up. You will not like how the car goes around corners with those tires though.
