You have heard the term PosiTraction? Well in a nutshell, limited slip
allows for one tire to roll faster than the other while cornering(slip),
but provide for "no slip" when one tire tries to spin under hard
acceleration. GM has a special additive for the clutches in the
differential that perform the "limited slip" to keep from ruining them.
Nope - Positraction is GM's name for limited slip differentials. First
appeared in Corvettes in '57.

yep... Posi and Limited Slip are the same and Posi is a GM "term"
And if you don't put the PROPER additive in, when you turn a corner
you will hear and feel a popping sound from the clutches grabbing and
releasing, instead smoothly slipping against each other.
