You dont have a LSD ( Limited Slip differental )Tranny. Only one wheel is alowed to spin, usually the one with less traction.

yes, you have what is called an open differential. perfectly normal. its the manufacturers way of making sure that your tires can spin at separate speeds around turns.

Haven't you see the movie "My Cousin Vinny" when they are analyzing the tire marks that travel off a curb. Jeez.

No, the Altimas have Vicious coupling LSD I believe. Like I say, I was told that I have an LSD transmission on my 97.5 without ABS. I don't know how to tell, but my car spins with both front tires and if one loses traction on wet roads the other kicks in to save the day. I dunno anything about it, I assumed that was the way all FWD vehicles performed.

I don't have LSD but I managed to do a burn out and lay down 2 thick black rubber strips!




















and I was in reverse at the time! :dunno:
