Time to look dumb again. HELP MT/ skoal haha

okay so friday i was off yay me. so i took my car to a job i was on the day befor yes i get off work and end up going to job sites cause im bored lol. and my buddy was there . and we was just talking etc etc etc.

caim time to leave me and my girl got in and my buddy was like VROOOM light em up . of corse i was like ight let me turn around first.

so i do so. and i just peel out i take off ehhh around 4k rpm carry a really nice peel out my personal best was quite happy bout it . UNTILL dot dot dot

my buddy calls me and says "thought u had a LSD" . i say i do.. he says no u dont i say how u get that *lol story weeee* he says only one tire was spining u left one tire track down this side street , i say hmmm thats weird. and beggin to get pissed off thinking i got screwd over "again" . i proceed to go out to my car i still have the window msrp sticker. get it out and look it over it says

"options installed b manufacturer

- Differential. limited slip

- CRYstal red metallic tintcoat.

so im angrey and all for awhile

and i think to myself and proceed to call my budy as he knows more about cars than i.

"i say - u know when i did that peel out i turns traction controle off and put comp mode on. Him - hmmm maybe thats why ur lsd didnt kick in? me - i dont @!#@!#[email protected] know.

so basicly after all this mobo jumbo typing

my question.

you got me on this one, I for the life cannot see any possible way of 'turning off' a LSD no matter what one does, other then removing it. By it's design, it can't be turned off, it's either a LSD tranny or it isn't, and it sounds like it isn't. You probably have to investigate this further with the dealer whom you made the purchase with. I have a 2006Cobalt SS/SC. They did not come LSD, only on the E85 package. 2010 I have no idea.

If I go to Chevys website, a LSD is a $495 option, so no, 2010's don't come standard with one.

Heres what you do......... find a road that you can get stop at. and then burn them. turn around, then get out and see if you left 1or 2 marks. If you left 2 then your good. if you only left 1. talk it to the dealership. but go straight.

The LSD is listed as the G85 option. In the trunk, under the carpet, you should have a sticker with all the installed options listed.
