supercharged 325 with 3.15 diff - still no problems with open diff. Turned the DSC off for spirited driving.
supercharged 330 with 3.46 diff - I'm glad I got the Quaife, even with the LSD it's tricky to get some traction.

why does everyone always insist on thinking this is for take-off traction. a LSD is not only used for take-offs. it's for traction in and out of every turn one makes and also on decel. a LSD is also about handling.
