Turbovsix will become famous soon enough

If I had it to do all over again, I would have DEFINITELY picked a Ram with the limited slip gearset. I didn't realize that my 3.55's didn't have limited slip until well after I bought the trunk (I made an ASSumption there that it had limited slip).

I personally don't care for the intervention of traction systems as I find they are too intrusive and hamper driving in certain situations. Not saying they're bad all around, but I'd prefer to have the LSP kick in and then have the traction control engage at a higher threshold.

Basically, you're running around with two open diffs on these if you buy the 3.55's, and I personally think it's stupid that Dodge didn't include the lsp on the 3.55's - I guess it's a cost-savings opportunity for them, and they figure that most folks nowadays are happy with the electronic traction control.

Just my opinion natch -
