No.

The reason the warning is there is because if you start the car and put it in gear and it has a lsd the car will take off and fall off the jack as the lsd will still send drive to the wheel on the ground. With a standard diff the power will go to the unladened wheel (the one off the ground) and it will spin and the car will stay there. Its just an idiot warning.

Oh yeah, so your el doesn't need a warning as it doesn't have a lsd.
