My car did not come with a LSD, but I put one in, in 3.15 ratio. The reason the rear came out so sharply was the wet spot I hit on the straight, after coming out of turn 6 in third gear. I was going maybe 50 mph when the crash occurred. I had earlier had the rear "twitch" a couple of times, but when this happened it was a BIG and FAST spin to the left.
: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaa, another bent 540, I may just lock mine in the garage for a while until things calm down!! Glad to hear that there are no serious injuries but that's a hard way to teach your son what "Not to do" (the crash that is) How fast where you going when the back came out? You know I love to drive fast and I belive I can do corners faster than most but when it gets wet.....Man thats when I get skittish. Oh well at least it's fixable, you'd not likely find another low mile example of a 6 speed in that color at any price. (I think I got the last one) :)
