Well, I've got it to work from front head and arm, head and arm tie, over + under, and the guillotine. As long as you have a tight dominant clinch it seems pretty high percentage (for me at least). I always make sure that I go in kind of a ten or eleven o'clock direction rather than straight back. Also, it is absolutely imperative that you block one of their hips. I kind of do it with my knee turned out, shin against hip, foot hooking inner thigh. You have to be really careful with this because no-gi players are always ready to drive you down into mount; if you don't block a hip that is exactly what will happen. Yeah, and you need to make sure that you kind sit on your heels rather than roll backwards.
You obviously also need to concentrate on elevating the opposite side to the one that you are pulling down on - it's best to pull down on the overhook side to stop them being able to post.
Just what has worked for me. Not the law or anything.

If you can get it, a kimura grip is ideal. Your foot should lift his opposite thigh instead of the same-side thigh and you reach over his back to get the grip on the arm. Another variant I know from self-defence is if they have you guillotined or in a head-and-arm clinch you can walk back, reach down to block the knee with both hands and then roll them over and turn to side control, but that does not really involve an inside lift with the legs.
Aside from that, I only ever hit that throw by gripping over the back and getting the belt, then rolling straight into mount. I'm rather at a loss for no-gi.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

Second what Shuma-Gorath just said: the kimura throwback is cool.
Although, and I just checked how Karo did it, I'd say you need to elevate the same side hip as the arm you are kimuraing (right arm = lift right hip. It makes sense because you are already elevating that side with the kimura and so it's easier to lift.
