That's why it's torque sensing, without any torque, it cant do ****.

I joy ride cars all the time. I've probably test drove 100+ cars since I was 16. 50% of the time I go by myself. Most recently I ripped *** in a 2011 Brembo Mustang GT. Literally ragged the **** out of it for 20min with the sales guy. I test them like I drive them, suck it.

Dont want to be the dumbest **** on here,but if its LSD diff it usually tells you right next to the filler cap to use "LSD OIL ONLY",maybe its only on the RHD or euro spec ones we have direct from japan but just my and most probably worth ****!

This only works on open rear end.....maybe wrong,but there is another way of checking,if you jack it and is in some way able to secure one wheel slightly just to apply some kind of friction on it(tying it with strap or rope os some kind to the car,even putting the slightest hold on it with your hands and a rope so it does actually turn when LSD kicks is)[DONT BE A ****,and put a retard behind the gass peddle] and it is able to turn that wheel with more "drag" you have yourself a LSD just my

I agree with the blip the throttle in mid donut approach. It works, but not exactly feasible during a test drive.

When I was buying mine, I drove casually for a bit, then, stopped with the right wheels off the pavement. There was actually a patch of gravel, so it was very convenient. I just spun the tires (not aggressively) and looked back to see if there was a mark on the pavement, too.
There was.
I repeated a few times, to verify.
I told the guy ı was listening for a noise.
Did not want to lose any bargaining points by revealing car had desirable components.

Oh, it has ABS, too. That was not brought up, either.
