okay i was outside of my house and i was curious if i could smoke my 245/35/19 inch tires. So I aplied the brake, put it in second, turned off the traction control and slowly step on the gas. The rear tires slowly stated to spin. I steped on it and to my surprise they smoke nicley, my father came outside to yell at me about the noise and the tire marks. I noticed that i had two equal rubber marks. I dont think i have LSD. i lost my paper that shows all the options on the car when you buy it so i called lexus to find out if i had lsd they said no. So i thought i got lucky that both tires spun the exact same so i did it again and surley enough they were the same. Can someone tell me if i could have lsd or if there is a way on the internet to look up what options are on the car.
I have a 2001 IS - Black onyx with black leather, no heated seats

LSD has no effect if both rear tires have the same traction.

If i were a betting man, I'd say that because you don't have heated seats, you car doesn't have LSD. From speaking with my salesman when i bought my car, he told me that heated seats and LSD came hand in hand and that to get one without the other was a special order...

Your salesman is wrong. I posted about this about a month and a half ago, but I was told my car had LSD (it has heated seats) and I checked the A/T code in the door and found that it DOES NOT have LSD. My car was not special ordered either.

I beleive the number of cars with LSD is limited due to emissions standards. There is more info on that if you do a search on LSD.

OK, now, hold yer horses. We've been through this one before. It varies by region. For us in Cali, we've gotta get the heated seats (in most cases) if we want the LSD. At least, that's what I had to do, along with several others from the Bay Area.

I know. You guys in California are always special! Different packages, different emissions, etc.


And I don't have any horses??? Just two cats.
