Can someone explain the way this works I still can't understand this concept.
you take a right turn in a lsd equipt car, power to the wheels shifts to say 40-60 so the wheel with more weight on it puts out more power. eh, i think that explains it.
I think you are wrong. An LSD means both wheels will spin "50-50" no matter what the driving condition. This gives better traction. An open differential means that power is given to the wheel that spins more freely. This isnt good for drag racing or any type of autox.
go to www.howstuffworks.com and learn
when you go around a turn with a limited slip it applies more power to the wheel that is not "slipping"
yeah you could have 50-50 with a ghetto lsd. like a non-lsd unit that you welded the spyder gears in . common man when you have lsd and you turn, 1 wheel turns slower than the other. so power is distributed in a 60-40 manner. if it was 50-50, one wheel would be chirping the whole time you were turning. trust me we did it to a mazda glc wagon(ghetto lsd) and taking corners sux.
eh, i tried to explain too much, i ment what pills said
