When you are on an autocross course in a Europa in which some fool has
installed a clutch-pack-type limited-slip, the "bad trip" you take is
head-on into a pylon. The front end of a Europa is so light that the effect
of such an LSD unit is almost indistinguishable from that of a locked rear
The mass distribution of a Europa makes LSD unnecessary and LSD raises havoc
in the tight corners often encountered in USA autocrossing.
I imagine that most Triumphs having LSD units are the better for it. The
mass distribution is quite different, making wheelspin whilst cornering a
potential problem. My (I hope) cure for that on the TR4 will be a front
