The open diff hate thread..

I hate the diff in my car so much, with a LSD my car would be completely different.

I honestly think that they are dangerous aswell, because if you slide.. you really cannot power out nearly as well as if you had a LSD.

Whos with me here on the open diff hatred?

I'll say a prayer for you guys w/Open diffs. LSD is the only way to go for the best of both worlds. Especially you guys with the high HPs and aero pkges. Open diffs are like shooting pool with a rope

Okay, I was told, if the tires spin in the same direction, you have limited slip. I do know that if your BMW has an LSD, the differential case will have a "S" stamped on the housing near the top of the case. May be hard to see with the diff in the car, though.
