Now granted, you can't pounded it even with the posi because then you'll spin both tires but you certianly have 90% better traction with it.

And of course if your ever going to go 4 wheelin, without a posi you won't be able to do half as much.
So in 4X4 without the limited slip I'll only have 2 opposite corners grabbing? With limited slip I'd have both rear wheels working for me as well as 1/2 front ones?

I had absolutely 0 traction problems with my 03, I mean 0. I couldn't spin the wheels without a brake torque. Not as much fun to drive. I don't mind the rear end breaking loose once in a while, know what I mean?
