Hi all, im thinking of buying an 04 BA XR6T(auto) just wondering if they come out with a limited slip diff standard?, and also how does traction control work on that particular model? Hope someone can shed some light on this subject :|

any ford performance vehicle come standard with limo diff e.g turbo, v8, xr6, and as for how traction control works when you want to do a burnout push button and turn it of or go to your local auto elec and get the wire pulled if there is no button but im pretty sure there is maybe im wrong best of luck

It keeps traction by employing a number of methods. Also, don't forget VSC (Vehicle Stability Control) which is also another complexity. You might want to lookup VSC for more documentation as well. It's like anti-lock that is not triggered by just a lock-up, but also by sensing direction and applying brakes and adjusting throttle to regain control in a logical direction. But while there's thrust only to the rear wheels, the VSC system applies to all four.

Here's some quotes I found online that may help clarify:

"All-Speed Vehicle Stability Control System Operated Via ABS Traction Control Measures Steering Wheel Angle/Direction and Lateral Acceleration."

"TRAC 2-Wheel Traction Control Controlled By ABS and Engine Management."

Here's some stuff from the Toyota website (

Active TRAC
Using sensors at all four wheels to monitor a loss of traction, Active TRAC employs brake and throttle control to reduce wheelspin and transfer torque to the wheel with the most traction. The system can be found on the Land Cruiser and 4-wheel-drive versions of 4Runner and the all-new Sequoia.

Vehicle Stability Control (VSC)
The VSC system electronically monitors speed and direction, and compares the vehicle's direction of travel with the driver's steering, acceleration and braking inputs. VSC can help compensate for loss of traction which can cause skids. It utilizes some components shared with the Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) and an electronically controlled engine throttle as well as a dedicated computer and sensors providing information to the VSC system. These include a yaw rate sensor, a G-sensor and a steering angle sensor.

When VSC is active, a warning beep tone and instrument panel warning light indicate that the system is functioning. In many cases, VSC reacts well before the driver is aware of a loss of traction. As with other safety technologies, such as anti-lock brakes, it is important to drive safely, since Vehicle Stability Control cannot defy the laws of physics, nor can it provide more traction than exists in a given condition.

Hey mate, I didn't have too mach time t have a look at goole, gotta go to school, but this should give you an idea of what its about.
