Default Limited Slip Differential ?

I have a 48-V EZ-GO that has a limited slip differential in the rear end. Now, this cart will climb trees in forward and both rear wheels will drive. However, when in reverse....it's a different world. It goes back to the old "regular differential" days where just one wheel will drive it.

Is that normal? (I'm not asking if I'm normal....we have established that in another thread)

Yes on both accounts!
I think the gears only lock up in the forward direction. When you go in reverse the pressure is released only letting one wheel pull.

I agree, That's why I went with Plowman's posi. I was told it would pull either way. I'm not up and running yet, so I haven't verified this yet.

As an added bonus it's made in America!!

Give us the both way report when you get it installed. Try it on a cliff first....and we want film of it....of course.

Where do you buy the Plowman's limited slip diff? I've googled it with no success. I assume it is different that the standard EZGO lsd.
