Mark X might be a little tall and heavy to begin with, upgrading from light FWD (commonly from Wira or Satria) to heavier RWD is a big change though. My condolences to those Mark X that went down with the ignorance of immature drivers.
yeah, thats me with similar transition... own 1.6 satria and 1.0 viva, and suddenly to MarkX. I fetch the car in Kuantan, and during drive back to JB, so excited and i found this cocky Navara driver. You know that Mersing-Kota Tinggi road is curvy and ups down as well. When he tried to overtook me at straight road, paddle to metal and I left him... haha.. im lucky im old enough to stop it after a few minutes and let him go at last. his navara is also modded i think, lowered and sounds loud, but still cannot beat MarkX.

Lots of times i also have the urge to race some cocky fellars, but i would not do it with those pick ups, these pick ups are very prone to turn turtle and i don't them to involve other people in their mishandling. Pick ups are very fast in stand still, Mark X is definitely more than enough to outrun it.

Actually I don't think shoddy work. Even my 4G63T when first went into my E33 body which is heavy, the power transmitted to FWD only need, need learning to drive properly. If 4G63T goes into Wira or Satria body which is so light, the power will be wild, and youngster will rev it kao kao, sure problem.....lol
no need 4g63T. 4g93 single cam auto already can feel the pull after some minor mods in a C97 chassis.

LOL come to think of it my CI current has lost its ASC (Active Stability Control), only the ABS is working. Would need to get LSD for the rear diff, otherwise its gonna be very scary in the rain.

Thanks,
Ken

Maintaining traction between both wheels, if i ever drifted out in the rain, at least i have it under control, better than open diff i am having now.

hmmm correct me if im wrong, it helps get power down. In that sense yes, if ur getting stuck alot, the lsd will help. but in theory, at the limit if your wheel's traction, actually you (with an lsd) will slide before a car without an lsd (car with an open dif will probably lose traction later since you dont break that traction threshold as easily. you dont tend to be able to put down power as suddenly with one wheel slipping away)

i could be wrong, but thats what i was told. Its not all pros, there are cons.
