For you guys driving in the snow. If you have one of your wheels spinning and the other one just sitting there...try this. Lightly press the brake pedal, this will act like a limited slip differential and power will be applied to the"doing nothing" wheel.

:-D:-D

It's far more worthwhile in the snow than a proper LSD is.
They just make both wheels spin instead ;-)

hold it very lightly.
it makes "traction" at both tires, so power gets applied to both sides instead of the one side thats spinning freely.


ya...LSD does just make both sides spin like a mofo :lol: I'm getting snow tires this year tho. It should be sick.

Using "2" in an auto will help a lot as it keeps the revs down and tends not to pick-up so quickly. That is exactly why it's there. Just don't go mashing the throttle

I've used mine locked in "2" on track. A short circuit where speeds were between 25mph & 70mph. Worked a treat.

What he said, actually tho, the revs would be higher for a given speed if the car is locked in 2nd gear as opposed to being able to shift in to the highest gear possible. (That's what autos do)
I shift my auto Sentra because it has this annoying ass bump from 1st to 2nd cause I need a motor mount. I also downshift it when slowing or going thru turn, gives me better control since I can 'feel' the car more, and it saves gas, fuel cut on decel, and saves brakes as well.

oh ok. Yeah I'm a Florida boy so I don't know about driving on snow or ice or salty roads or whatever. The worst we have are puddles of rain water and salt in the 90 degree sea breeze. Speaking of which it was hot as hell this weekend! I went to Daytona (twice lol) and I thought I might sweat to death!
Hot as hell in the middle of December, you poor bastard.:lol:
