Do you wish airplanes didn't fly?

Do you wish pornstars didn't have sex?

Do you wish booze had no alcohol?

I wish you would understand what a Raptor is - what its heritage and purpose is - so you wouldn't want to cut its nuts off and still call it a Raptor.

The info shared by Frank is good. I did not know our raptors had a 3 to 1 TBR.

Here's a simple explanation: https://auto.howstuffworks.com/differential6.htm

Bottom line: for off road traction, locking diff > torsen LSD > open diff.

For on road, LSD > locking diff or open diff (since a user selectable locker isn't very useful in a fast changing street driving traction scenario; i.e., a user can never react fast enough to engage the locker in most street situations, unless they are already fully stuck)

C'mon guys - the cost of the Torsen option vs. the cost of any Raptor makes it a non-issue

If you don't need a Torsen...you probably don't need a Raptor. Rav 4 might do ya.

Yep, a 2wd Raptor is just dumb.
