    Test drove 996 GT3 - are you supposed to hear the LSD work?

    I test drove an 04 GT3 with 11k miles which has been tracked. Whenever I turned the car at all, I heard what sounded like grinding or rubbing or something from the back. The salesman said it was the LSD working, but I find it strange that it should be so intrusive.

    It was a blast to drive, and it still has a year on the warranty, so I am sure it would get sorted out if there was a problem, but I was wondering whether such a noise was normal. I am guessing not.

    I asked for the service dept to download the stats on how many the times the car had been redlined and banged off the rev limiter. It will be interesting to see what info that reveals.

    TIA

    PS Any advice on what you would pay for a speed yellow 04 GT3 with 11k miles, and a track history?

    Re: Test drove 996 GT3 - are you supposed to hear the LSD work?

    Yes, that is a normal to hear the LSD at low speeds with a sharp turning angle.

    Re: Test drove 996 GT3 - are you supposed to hear the LSD work?

    Yep, that sounds like LSD...

    Re: Test drove 996 GT3 - are you supposed to hear the LSD work?

    Pay attention, LSD is a drug - On the GT3 this sounds pretty much addictive.

    I love it on my TT as well. Although it's not as much audible.

    Re: Test drove 996 GT3 - are you supposed to hear the LSD work?

    I don't remember hearing it at all on my 02. I didn't even know the TTs had LSD.

    It was an option - not sure it started by 2002 though - I think only in later years...

    Have 03 GT3,, yup LSD noise loud and clear. You soon learn to ignore it.

    Re: Test drove 996 GT3 - are you supposed to hear

    I'm a new owner of an 04 and noticed the noise right from the start... glad to know it's normal.

    So is the car you drove in TX the one with orange RS graphics, an exhasut system , and a supposedly stunning stereo? Saw that car online as I was shopping a week ago. In the end I bought a nice clean local GT3 with no additions. I think the only thing that I'd wish for is cruise control on occasion.

    No, the one I drove was speed yellow.
