I wouldn't do it "just for the fun of thinking I have that option". That sounds like a very condescending thing to say, unless that's why you do the things you do. If you don't know what the advantages of having LSD are then I suggest you do some research. I tend to do things for thought out reasons.
I was able to get it for a good price, I just couldn't refuse.
I need to get the Rav OEM LSD inners from Toyota, they cost about $125 each side, that's the killer. So total it should cost me around $450 complete. I can live with that.
Having LSD in the rear is better in just about every way. The Rav will have better traction in the snow, dirt, sand, off-roading, everywhere. Also knowing that my stock rear diff only holds until around 250hp, having the extra security of a very strong, reliable, proven LSD diff is worth it.
I know the Beams has only 210hp and right now I'm not close with my restrictive exhaust and minimum 15%-20% drivetrain loss. It just gives me future options.
1995 Celica - ST205 3sgte swapped
1994 Celica - Redtop Beams swapped
1998 Rav4 - winter beater - Redtop Beams swapped and actually fun to drive now.
