OBX helical LSD

Ok so i have ordered an OBX helical LSD given the mixed reviews its either going to be an awesome cheap alternitive to the Quaiffe LSD or its going to explode and take my transmission with it... I am willing to take a hit for the better of our community here on the mini forums.

The car; 2003 mini cooper S
stage 5 SPEC clutch
stock flywheel
MSD ignition
1 step cooler plugs
18" rims (not sure on brand)
yellow shocks (lowered alot)
15% red pulley

im making this car a budget race car the spec clutch is 450$ the OBX LSD is 450$... the quaiffe LSD is around what 1500 or so... please let me know of opinions on this LSD

The only thing I can say, in my experience anything cheap never lasts and always works out the more expensive option in the end, theres a very big difference in the prices.
Still it might be made of top grade Chinese bits and none of your British rubbish.
