no posi rears in any camaro.

5th gen camaro as well as 4th gen fbody use a torsen differential which have no clutches so they are not a posi.they call them a limited slip which is not the same as a posi.They also suck in the snow.I changed my firehawk to an eaton posi and it made a huge difference at the track and in the snow.

Limited slip IS a posi;torsen or clutch type, they are both LSD.

You are referring to a locker.

http://auto.howstuffworks.com/differential4.htm LSD

http://auto.howstuffworks.com/differential6.htm Torsen

The 5th gen rear diff's are definately CLUTCH type LSD's!
Thus, when coasting, the clutches slip. And under throttle, the clutches grab
and "lock" up to the designed breaking torque, which they will break free and slip. As the clutch type get worn they will "one leg" just like an open diff.
The 5th gen uses a plate type clutch as opposed to the cone style.
These last longer and can be rebuilt easily and possible upgraded to stronger bias springs.

I'm running 3.70's and leave two black marks everytime I Mash on the Pedal hard enough.

IF I were running a Solid rear Axle I would be Running 3.90's and a detroit locker.

I wonder why GM did not give the auto the LSD. Do they think the people with autos don't play around. Just asking. I uploaded the 2011 spec sheet.

I dont know if its me or you reading it wrong but just like 2010

Both v8 models ( manual and auto ) get the LSD
The manual V6 gets the LSD but the Automatic doesnt.

No, your right, I knew that. But I still wonder why GM did not just give the v6 auto LSD..
