not entirely true.
Once you drive a car with LSD, you will not be crazy about cars without it.
If you are cornering (even on dry roads), and your speed causes the inside wheel to lift, the TC will kick in and slow you down until TC/ECU finds it safe to resume forward acceleration.
Same scenario, with LSD, turn TC off, inside wheel lifts, power goes to the outside wheel and you can keep forward acceleration.
