The spin Coulomb drag is a distinctive feature of spin-polarized transport. The current of majority spins can induce a current of minority spin carriers via the transconductivity. The friction is caused by the Coulomb interaction between up- and down-spin. This interaction reduces the current but does not change the spin-polarization. We calculate the conductivities and the transconductivity for a spin-polarized interacting 1-D electron gas for a lattice without inversion symmetry in the presence of nonmagnetic impurities. Due to the Luttinger liquid properties, the temperature dependence of the transport correlation functions follows power laws of with nonuniversal exponents.
