Rebuild with heavy duty parts and relax on thinking you will ever need to tub it out and put 40" slicks on to keep traction.

Yes yes, I realize that. I asked about the LSD because somewhere else I read the car transfers power to one wheel more than the other and this can lead to big transmission damage down the road. Considering that I am having the thing put in for rebuilding anyway, I was trying to figure out whether or not to spend the extra money.

Mortehl, torque steer is from uneven length/angle drive shafts.

Straight line burnouts do not stress a Diff more on one side than another.

Your car will lay twins in a straight line ever time.

NEVER do one-wheel wonders (burnout in a turn). THAT'* going to blow your diff faster than anything.
