interesting...

They state it is from the developers of the Phantom Grip. Never heard of issues with the old Phantom Grip diff's. Might be legit.

This is what They said.

It installs into your open diff and converts to an lsd. It has two distinctive functions see how it works here:
How does an lsd work, Traction Concepts style....
And the install pertaining to the Accord is pretty basic once the diff is out on the bench.Although ebay servers are bugging out and I can't seem to attach the install guide in here right now. If your interested, contact us through the link and I can send there.

Hello, yes it will work on 2003-2007 Honda Accord v6 / 6 spd.and it is currently on a discounted price on our ebay listing as opposed to our online store listing:
Honda Accord Limited Slip Diff Conversion Kit
If you choose to go with the online store listing specifically showing the Accord, let me know and I will honor the discount there as well.
Thank you for your interest in Traction Concepts LSD Kits and we look forward to equipping your Accord.

thats pretty interesting. Just watched a video install of it on a 350z. Doesn't look too hard if we can get the tranney out.

yup they are. They lock the gears and the teeth ride on the box. Haven't actually seen a blown tranney but heard that it increase metal shaving.

I heard back from them again. I asked them if they had any reviews or if anyone could back up their product and this was the response.

"We are actually pulling our project spotlight section together at the moment getting the media dept to fine tune the articles and releases. We have many different cars out there with various traction needs that we will be sharing soon.

As Traction Concepts is a fairly new brand name to hit the market recently, it is still pulling the complete specs from our users together and their event results, etc.
Our sister company has over 18 years of reviews, gallery photos, & testimonials to view the gallery for starters and if you need any other info related to Traction Concepts LSD Kits, let us know specifically what we can assist you with.

Thank you for expressing your interest in our Traction Concepts LSD Conversion Kits as a possibility for traction needs. We are here for any technical advice you may need.

-Gina"

I told them i had some concerns and this was their response.

Well, not sure about the actual cases & if they were even from authorized sellers or if they were knock offs. We are here for any technical assistance.**'Failures' meaning what exactly?; and ruined trannies are due to improper installation. We have thousands of vehicles running these kits from daily drivers to high hp enduro. This would be a serious case that we would need checking with the install facility because to have 4 *negatives from one single shop and we have been in business over 18 years and never had knowledge of this in house, .....??????

^ It's going to be a never ending circle here.

Development may have improved the product in the past years. People say Tsudos are crap exhaust, I dont have a single issue and actually really like mine!

When its all said and done, it would be better just to buy a TL trans, unless your non LSD is flawless.
