Torquey 88mm VE smoked those splines. Both wheels moved in the same direction, right? i know remember when i rotated the wheels, they went pegleg style and spun opposite directions of each other. OEM green axles?

Wheels moved in opposite directions. So it could be the diff? One is a green axle, other not sure where it came from.

Or the splines are others have suggested. I had problems over a decade ago and I am remember more bits and pieces as I think about this thread.

I know I went from a B14 SE-R VLSD to a peg leg when I cracked my case and I am sure something else happened inside the transmission. I never took apart that trans, a friend of mine did and replaced stuff with other parts. I know I got a different case, my gears were ok, and I recall him mention that he did replace my VLSD unit with a lower mileage unit he had from his original B13. I know my axles were completely fine because I still have those exact same axles in my B14 now.

Me being lazy. I almost tore into it yesterday, then the couch grabbed me. Maybe tonight. I took insurance off and I have little motivation right now.

Yeah I sheared the CV shaft on my old B14 before a mean deer took her away from me. Same symptoms everything looked normal but once I started tearing it apart and pulled the shaft out I saw there was no splined end on it. It was broken off inside the differential. I had to use a screwdriver from the other side to knock it out of the diff. I still have it laying around somewhere with a transmission shaft that had third gear forcefully removed while beating a mustang.

Turns out to be the axle. Broken splines. Time to find another axle and get it in storage.
