posi, i don't think so, i think actual Posi refers to Rear Diffs.

Posi or Pozi or Positraction is in reffernce to a limited slip differencial(the unit will lock up so that if one tires starts slipping the torque causes the unit to lock feeding power to both wheels verse just one), most factory cars come with open differencials (if a tire starts spinning all the cars power goes to that tire due to it being the least of resistance).

There are front wheel drive cars that come with limited slip diffs but they tend to be a "sport" or race style packages, example: the new Saturn Redlines will have a limi slip diff as well as the Chevy Cobalts and I think the SRT-4's have them as well.

You see one cause your differencial is an Open diff, it lets the one tire loose and dumps all the power to it being that it has less resistance than the other tire, where as with a Posi traction (or limited slip differencial) set up you'd see a very short single strip and either a matchin dual strip or your car would just get traction and take off.

Yes the SRT-4's have a Quaife automatic torque biasing (ATB) differential. Which was a huge complaint among owners and magazines because it would be all over the place.

Power is transferred to both front wheels, however, if one of the wheels starts to slip, all the power is dumped to that wheel for the reason listed above (least resistance). You can't have a burnout without the tire(s) sliping, thus the reason you only get one skid mark.

Nice shameless plug! LoL!
I don't have a cool graphic, but we do have a website (and you can PM me if you want a cd... $5)

Speaking of bands...

I was flirting with the idea of creating a bass/techno CD solely using the computer. My band name would be P.U.S.S.Y.

Promiscuous
Unintelligent
Slighty
Sophisticated
Yokel


Oh I can see the CD cover now.....

I may be wrong but I believe our cars (at least R/Ts?) do have some flavor of limited slip differential? I believe when I burn out power is transferred to the wheel that is not slipping...kind of back and forth until the car gets traction.

I dunno. I kinda tested this in my parents drive way last summer (the bottom half is just rocks and sand). There was only one line of "disturbance" in the drive way (and one in the house...my dad wasn't pleased ),

That's the traction control button.
