I've driven LSD, and it does take away some of the pure, raw handling ablilities of the non-LSD.
Here are my reasons to go non-LSD:
1) I don't auto-x
2) I drive aggressively at times and have had ZERO problems with loss-of-control in cornering/coming out of corners in 10,000 miles with the Elise, and almost 1000 in the S
3) I drive 99.9% of the time on dry, above freezing pavement
4) What very little wheel spin I have experienced at rare times I have been able to control without a significant loss of speed/control
5) Not a daily driver
6) I LOVE the raw-handling feel of the car, and do NOT want to change a thing at this point
