When I test drove the three, I didnt push it hard enough to know if I need a LSD, so I gotta ask the other TM3 members. Do we need it?

And is there even a LSD out there 4 the 3?

Some really cheap rear-wheel drive cars does not have differentials

how would a \"really cheap\" RWD car not have a differential?

a differential transfers the rotating motion of the driveshaft to forward motion in the wheels. ALL RWD cars would have to have some sort of differential, unless their transmission is at the back and the driveshafts come out in the same axis as the wheel (like Subaru\'s front driveshafts).

i\'m guessing you meant some \"really cheap\" RWD cars don\'t have LIMITED SLIP differentials.
