SubaruGears sent photos of the Torsen limited slip differential (LSD) that will be installed in the transaxle. Torsen = Torque Sensing. It senses the difference in torque between the wheels and locks them up for better traction. With the horsepower we’re shooting for and the lightness of the car, Todd suggested that we add it.
This stuff is beyond me in terms of mechanical understanding but I know its cool as southerner in a seersucker suit eating a cucumber sandwich. The picture of the two tire tracks made by the Tempest from the movie My Cousin Vinny comes to mind. Here’s an animation of how a Torsen LSD works.
