Improves traction by splitting torque evenly and preventing one wheel from slipping or spinning. Especially helpful during cornering or other slippery situations (snow, gravel, etc.).
Limit States Design. Limit states design is a method of design that is mandated by all Canadian building codes and separates the "factor of safety" into two parts: a load factor and a resistance factor. The load factor is applied to the specified loads to recognize that loads higher than those anticipated may occur and is independent of the structural material. A resistance factor is applied to the theoretical member strength, or resistance, to recognize that the strength of the member cannot be predicted exactly due to variability in material properties, dimensions and workmanship.
Limited Slip Differential. Unlike an open differential that provides no resistance to the differential action when the difference in rotational speed between the output shafts is small, ie. when cornering, a LSD provides increasing resistance as the difference in speed increases.
Limited Slip Differential. A differential having special friction mechanisms tending to keep both rear-axle shafts rotating at the same speed, regardless of unequal tire-to-road surface friction.

Limited Slip Differential. A differential that reduces speed differences between wheels. An LSD improves traction by preventing a slipping wheel from receiving all the engine power.
Limited Slip Differential. Axle gearing that allows power to be transferred to the wheel with the most traction. Similar to posi traction. (allows both power wheels to “lock up” and spin at the same time)
Limited Slip Differential. Locks both tires when accelerating in a straight line, so that not just one tire is gripping the road. Better ones even lock in turns at lower speeds. These give you better traction.

Limited Slip Differential. In low traction situations, driving force is fed to the wheel with traction. [ edit
