    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)

    It appears that you also like playing with the English language.

    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.
