The reason LSD and T/C are available together is that the T/C uses the brake on a wheel that is wheelspinning and transfers the drive to the other wheel, as well as having the normal torque reduction at the engine.

It would probably be easier to do a skid in an XT as they have smaller tyres.
LOL in my old car (EF2 fairmont ghia 3.45 LSD) i did a 50 metre burnout (yes that is correct as it was measured) That was using 225 rubber aswell on chunky road. These 6's have plenty of down low torque :)

Yes you can, the XR6 Turbo The XR8 and now the NA XR6 all come with T/C with LSD or as an option. Its only the utes now that don't have the option, and they bloody well should but I think then you'd lose the price advantage.

Its the best thing having a manual XR with traction control, makes it a piece of piss to rockout out of an intersection across teh crown of the road and down the street without smoking both rears up and powersliding down the road, as such in some YOOTS....

Re: Why can't a BA XR6 do a burnout?

My N/A 6 has no probs doing a burnout! But ive got a manual which makes it damn near impossible not to smoke em on que! while we r on the topic of tracton and lsd and all of that maybe someone can answer my query. ive got lsd on my car and on the weekend my mates were behind me when i started smoken em and they said only 1 wheel was spinning, then when i snagged 2 and went around the corner both wheels started spinning cos a left 2 huge black lines down the road. my query is isnt lsd supposed to make both wheels spin when 1 losses traction?? thats what i always thought
