Better is a subjective word. It would be crazy to think we all want the same thing, thus we have to see other people's points of view. I think LOTS of people are going to be VERY happy with the systems Nissan has in place. You sound like you are, and I'm happy for you, maybe even a bit envious. I however am just not yet fitting into that category. I love the Titan, and really want an '05, but this is an important issue to me.moose44 said:The Titan's Active Brake Limited Slip (ABLS) Differential is a better version of regular LSD as far as I understand it, so what exactly is the "oversight on Nissan's part"? Nissan improves on the LSD AND offers true locking rear differential. What could be better than that? Or am I missing something here? Moose
- Active brake, what's wrong with it FOR ME? I do not want the computer applying the brakes to limit slip when I would rather drive the truck myself, I would rather feel the slip and then compensate for it myself. I do not want a truck that is happily applying the brakes while I am happily standing on the gas; the two just do not go together in my world.
- E-locker, all this technology is great, IF you want to drive in 4WD LOW. If you are in 4WD HIGH this technology is not at play. The greatest technology does not do a darn thing for ya if it is turned off.
- Oversight from MY point of view. I would rather have a traditional LSD. I could feel what the truck was doing and could compensate. If I wanted to spin BOTH back tires to help me get through the snow or mud I could. I would have the additional benefit of driving both back tires in 4WD HIGH, a gear selection I use way more often than 4WD LOW.
See my avatar? I play on racetracks, I have worked very hard to develop my car control skills, I am very much NOT into having the on board computer think for me.
