If that is what they are calling the torsen style diffs somewhere above 400ish wheel they can get weird. They will randomly switch power from one wheel to the other usually super fast. Seems to get worse with more power or more weight/sticky tires. Most of the guys I know have swapped them all out.

Torsen is good for road racing and street Torsen requires that BOTH wheels be on the ground to work effectively.

Ah ok, I was judging because the carrier looks so thin to have all of the gears inside.

If you're running drag radials, you don't want a helical limited slip. My boss 302 has a factory Torsen. It will do weird things if I try to do a burnout or launch it hard. It works great for autocross or around the twisties though.
