Just tonight i got in an accident going around a corner no more than 40 in my friends civic SI. We skidded on wet leaves onto one of my neighbors lawns and smashed the front right wheel and bumper on a rock. The tire popped, the rim is scratched and the bumper is all scratched. So I was just wondering if this might happen to me in my IS with lsd? Thanks

LSD and traction control only help when you are accelerating.

If you come around a corner too fast and lose traction (on wet leaves, ice, whatever) you can slide off the road due to momentum regardless of those things.

Your best "friend" in this case would be the ABS brakes - assuming you can get enough traction to get the tires to "bite" on something.
