kaaz enough for me to launch?

Ok, running about 350 to the wheels in my FD. Wanted to know if the kaaz LSD is enough for me to be able to launch hard. Or are shocks/springs or coilovers a must as well? Any help appreciated

I am running 520 rwhp and launching at 7500rpm. All I did was upgrade to a TII rear diff.

brian henson has a 93 with a 500hp 500+tq ls1 and launches at 5500 with et streets. worked fine till he put a 100 shot on top of the 500tq he had. the kaaz worked great but the axels didnt. so yeah if the kaaz unit can hold some off the line V8 torque it should be fine

Yea, he ran the stock diff/axles for a long time, then he started launching around 6K rpms. The stock stuff doesnt break from the tq, it breaks from the high rpms that single turbo guys have to launch with. The Kaaz and the clutch style TII diff both can hold up to high rpms launching just fine. That stock diff just doesnt like to see 6000 rpms from a dead stop haha

the only weaklink that is hard to fix in a FD is the tranny. i had a T2 diff, upgraded PPF, 300m axles and all i broke was 3 trannies ! i was launching at 8500rpm off the rev limiter though
