Poor Man's LSD

Why do they refer to the Viscous LSD as the "poor man's LSD"?

Because it was an option on some 240's and it is not as good as the other LSD's on the market? IDK though, I've never heard it called that.

I've read a couple of different car magazines over the years and some of them refered to it as the "poor man's lsd" but they never said why.

A VLSD pumpkin can be had for as little as 100 bucks.

I think that may have something to do with it.

I replied in your other thread in the "Motorsports" section, I'm going to close this and let the discussion continue there.
