Looking for information on noise coming from the rear while doing accelerated cornering... It could be the Quaife LSD, but these are supposed to be bullet proof. Or it might be the CV joints. My rear axles are 1K HP axels from the Driveshaft Shop. My guess is that it might be the CV joints on the axles. What's the concensus?

Thanks for the feedback. While I change my Quaife differential gear oil at regular intervals, it doesn't need a friction modifier because it's a geared differential, as opposed to having a spider gear like most others. I purchased the Quaife already installed in a pumpkin, so it's been relatively trouble free. I will, however, check the gear oil to make sure that it's still OK. The two things that come to mind at this point are either the CV joints on the left half-shaft or the wheel bearings. I'm leaning toward the CV joint nearest the differential on the left side. However, the wheel bearings have been installed for over 10 years. I'll have those checked as well.
