Snagged the Redline and drove 825 miles the first day. Took it fairly easy the first 300 miles (no cruise and under 70), next 100 drove it close to normal, next hundred tried it out passing 4 cars and hit 105. The rest of the way was normal driving.2,800 miles and no leaks

poll

Does any one know the percentage of Sol/Sky sold that have the LSD, this info would be needed to draw a comparison between the two types of differentials.

Mine was leaking from almost day 1. Took Maria in for the shifting clunk. Tech discovered LSD was leaking then, < 1K miles. New seals, and vent tube mod was not going to resolve it. Saturn replaced it. Will see how the new one does. Problem seems to be in the beginning run. Much like Dodge transmissions before SPC.

I agree

break in has nothing to do with it
