Question Open Diff / viscous AWD question

If you lift a rear wheel in the open-diffed pre-00RS (or any), does that free-spinning wheel trigger the AWD to send torque up front, or are you just floating?

The center viscous coupler doesn't react instantly, but let's say it was off the ground for ... 3 seconds or so, under power. (probably impossible, I know.) It would limit slip then, yes.

Peg-legging is not a desireable thing-- you can probably corner faster if you tune the suspension so that all four wheels stay on the ground even while braking and turning.

I've only noticed a spinning rear on a particular 90deg off-camber right hander - in the wet (Friars Rd eastbound onto 15n on-ramp)- but I was still curious. I could use a cheap rear lsd...ahh, Santa.

Exclamation

On an RS w/o Rear LSD, the rear open diff will eat up the difference between the left and right rear wheels, effectively creating a difference between the front and rear, which will cause the center LSD to lock. With a rear LSD, it will lock up first before the center, and the center will only lock up if both rear wheels are free-spinning.
