I wouldn't call it a waste of money. I am just opting not to get it.

Maybe you should try and launch one before you say that.

Depending on what kind of LSD... The SRT's for example, doesn't affect launching. It only affects cornering.

I knew nothing of the LSD package, But it would definatly be sweet on this car

Wonder if they can put it in after the fact or if its just offered from the factory

Yes it can be installed afterwards but it will cost you a LOT of money$$$.
Probably more than the $1400 claimed price and you wont get the Recaros either. But I think it would be worth it.

Whoever said it doesn't affect launching on the SRT-4's is wrong. (not being a jerk, just pointing it out)

On any car, a LSD is the difference between one wheel spinning, and two wheels spinning.

In our club, we have SRT-4's from '03-'05 and the ones w/ the LSD launch a hell of a lot better.

I wish I had it on my 'Tona

Thumbs up LSD Option Opinion

As the proud (original) owner of a '92 Nissan Sentra SE-R, one of the few FWD cars to have a factory LSD (viscous) diff, I can assure you that it will you get off the line a lot quicker than a car without it (power & weight being the same). Also sharp corner handling is improved, because if the inside tire slips power is tranferred to the outer wheel. This will be especially true with the Quaiffe diff, ( properly a torque biasing diff)

...(canada) yet. I checked about putting it in after the fact and even with the same LSD as GM is using and installed byGM mechanics it VOIDS the warranty. There are differing opinions but 1 GM rep said that all parts associated with such mods are also vioded.
