We have snow here already...
So I tried my car on ice for the first time. And suprizingly noticed that when one of the wheels is on slippery surface the other is pulling the car out. I am almost sure I have and LSD.... But is there any easy way to check that?

Drag racing an m3 is like going fishing with a hooker, it's fun but it's not what you got her for.
There's no replacement for displacement.
I need to know!

jack up your car so that both rear wheels are off the ground, spin one of your wheels one direction and look at the direction of the wheel on the other side. if it is spinning the same direction you have lsd, if it is spinning opposite direction you dont.

or you could do it the fun way and do a burn out, which wouldn't be recommended by many but non the less pretty fun

So my '93 318is would have an LSD, by their logic. Sweet, considering that's something my '94 Taurus didn't have.

Taurus is front wheel drive, which is very rarely limited slip

(off-topic)God, that car sucked.(/off-topic)

LSD is good. Very good, considering how slick roads get here. Methinks between that and 120# of sand, I'll have a very pleasant driving winter.
