    Well it spins both but will it HOOK and go? If not it's useless! If it will hook and go I am thinking it would be shall we say interesting to drop one into a E400 or 420 along with a stealth 5.0 or 6.0 with no badges !

    like a white badgeless 400e running a 6.0 and LSD....yea, it's fun....still doesn't hook for ... but I thoroughly enjoy going sideways on those 245's!

    I'll need to get some video of the track car liquidating tyres....it does a Really good job of it

    Re: E500 WaveTrac diff [Video demonstration]

    Hook means to stop spinning and get traction, and go (accelerate), rather than just making tire smoke (burnout). Dropping one, in this case, means putting a limited slip differential into the car (E400 or 420 in this case). A stealth car, sometimes called a "sleeper" by old folks like me, means on the outside it just looks like granny's car, but under the hood it has some serious power and will surprise a punk or other poser with his supposedly "fast" car. Does that help?
