Default somebody else used to love my car!!!

wife is not happy with me right now, you will see why in the picture, but im very happy, i knew that a PO had done some work to motor, intake was port matched to head, but apparently he added a LSD as well, i knew that i had hard time getting car onto a trailer when i moved as rear kept going sideways instead of climbing ramps, and wasnt sure if that was an open rear end that was forcing car sideways as ramps were damp! today i found out beyond shadow of a doubt!!!!!!! exiting garage i got a little jiggy with it!!!

I wonder what else has been done......

Check that its not a locked/welded diff, usually an LSD will still allow some slip for ease of cornering at slower speeds.


Locked diffs are a much cheaper option and exhibit understeer as one of their main traits, as covered upon in your trailer loading issue
