I had the van in snow/ice and backed it out of a slight decline and the LS locked up and took me right out of there in 2WD. My thought is that the RSC is looking at the rotation speeds of the tires and once a certain difference is met it will brake the faster wheel maybe?? LS does the same but engages the slower wheel.

Your mystery may be that supposedly someone in Socal has figured out a way to disable the RSC. I have read about it in some threads but have not pursued it as I don't think I am really being hindered other than making it a hassle to upgrade my rear axle to a Full Float.

Makes sense. I wonder if the TCS would actually react faster than the mechanical LSD, applying brake pressure to the wheel that has a traction loss, but then the mechanical LSD "hooks up" and the TCS backs off. That would be ideal I would imagine, but we're starting to get to the point where I'm way out of my element.



Good to know! Not sure that this van is going to get the full 4WD treatment, and I'm a relatively light offroader, but not getting stuck in the woods in important to me.

It's certainly good to know as much as possible even if you never really have to apply it. I am a light offroad person as well and do some snow. My van has made it through some slick mud and snow with little issue.
