Of course the F30 should have more parts when the E90 laid down the foundation

Probably not. I doubt anyone's manufactured one for the car yet. Personally, I hope they don't convert it with a LSD. I hope they keep winning with as close to the original car as possible.

Because it's more entertaining, it's mechanical, has heritage, blah blah...

Supposedly they banned Traction Control from NASCAR and F1 because it's more beneficial than LSD. Maybe Team Afrox is on to something.... *shrug

I cannot find it in the specs but I just guess that thing surely has a www.drexler.com lsd.

?????

Any racecar just needs a mechanical LSD.

Edit:It looks like that F30 racer doesn't have a mech lsd though....

Cheers
