Default Re: Open or L/S rear end?

So this is wrong.

An open diff the side with less traction will spin. A limited slip, limits the slip dependant on the model a portion of the torque is sent to both wheels. They can also still act like a limited slip at speed look at every single sports car at speed especially mustangs running the exact same traklok LSD.

As for doyouquaxu the FX4 level 2's do have a Torsen LS which is gear based (like a detroit) unlike the clutch based Traklok like he mentioned. The ones in the Ranger specifically have the cheap clutches unlike the carbon ones in the cobra's
