Thanks everyone.

It's unfortunate that limited slip differentials have been replaced by traction control. While I don't dislike traction control, I would much rather have torque going to both wheels rather than have the traction control system try to slow a spinning wheel.

I don't think the Elise is a good example for this discussion.
