Limited-slip differential (LSD)Limited-slip differential (LSD)  - Starting and driving - Mitsubishi Lancer Owner's Manual - Mitsubishi Lancer

A limited-slip differential (LSD) is applied for the rear wheel differential. The features of this LSD are described below: Just as with a conventional differential, the wheel on one side is allowed to turn at a different speed from the wheel on the other side when the vehicle is cornering. The difference between the LSD and a conventional differential is that if the wheel on one side of the vehicle loses traction, a greater amount of torque is applied to the wheel on the other side to improve traction.

► Even if there is a difference in the amount of traction the wheels can get, Note

► Even if there is a difference in the amount of traction the wheels can get, if both of them are spinning, the LSD will not be effective.

► Never start the engine while one of the rear wheels is jacked up and the Caution

► Never start the engine while one of the rear wheels is jacked up and the other in contact with the ground; doing so may cause the vehicle to jump forward.
► Continuously attempting to extract the vehicle from snow, mud, etc. while using high engine rpm may damage the LSD.
► Using a compact spare wheel will adversely affect the LSD; replace the compact spare wheel with a standard size wheel as soon as possible
