Help!

Just had my Christmas list of goodies put on and Damn! But I see a problem maybe someone can explain to me! How does the track control work? According to the truck build it should have limited slip however only one tire spins like an open diff. Is this caused by the track control or would this be clutch packs in the rear end wasted?

It means your rear end is working correctly. Limited slip is not a Full lock axle so when you punch the throttle 1 wheel can brake loose, since it lost traction it now requires less torque to spin it. The wheel that has traction is actually recieving more traction but you visualy dont see this as you see the spinning tire.

To make both wheels spin you have to put enough resistance to brake them both loose, or make the wheel that tends to have better traction have less traction.

do a google search on Limite Slip Differentials and you will see how they work.

This may help...

Keep in mind your configuration may differ. For instance, my F250 has a limited slip rear differential in 2WD with a locked front in 4WD (which is why it's so hard to steer in 4WD on pavement). So in 2WD I have 1 rear drive wheel with the other providing a small amount of torque, but in 4WD I have 3 drive wheels.
