Only two ways to drive an S15 with a 2 way full lock around a corner:

neighbor friendly approach:
driving down the street, approaching corner, clutch in, turn the corner, release clutch only when car is perfectly straight and carry on your merry way.

not so neighbor friendly approach:
driving down the street, approaching corner, accelerate, turning in and rip the handbrake, accelerate even harder and pray to your god mum or dad aren’t outside as your car gets stupidly sideways.


Yeah had 2 of these experience with my LSD 1 one i had that comment from a father's fren ... He heard i was turning into the house with the LSD chattering sound and went told my father that my drive shaft koyak edi .. then i explain that it was the LSD sound ... They look at me with a blank face .... LSD ? So i was lazy to explain to these old folks so i say i will go change the drive shaft tomolo .... 2nd experience was i was parking my car in Murni SS2 , when turning in the LSD chattering sound gave my fren a scare which he shouted oii bro u knock somone lahh ... Again i try to explain the sound to him ...
I too have given up explaining the ins and outs of an LSD to different people and different times. I think I gave up after the 10th time, now I just say, "something's wrong, need to get it checked out".

The clunky clunky gets some getting used to but after awhile its quite ok. It lets you know whats happening in the rear. Then u get the nice road feel in your bum.

LOL @ the bum remark.
I wouldnt mind getting my DIFF looked at though, seems too violent at time and really annoying when going around slow corners. Hopefully its just me being too sensitive. This is my first aftermarket diff so I dont really have anything to compare/benchmark it against.
