Your right, I was trying to show the two extremes. The open differential won't push your vehicle through a turn. A full locker will. The LSD will fall somewhere in between depending on difference in wheel speed, quality of the limited slip and condition of it. I have had LSD that don't do crap and then I have others that would squeal the tires around a corner.
