Hi,

Got my car booked in for an MOT tomorrow, I asked the garage [Kia dealer] about the brake test, on a previous car [Honda S2000] the limited slip diff precluded the car from going on a rolling road test - I think it could break the diff? So I asked about this with the Kia garage, they advised it was ok to put it on a rolling road, they just do it in 4 wheel drive mode. Can anyone confirm if this makes sense? Its not something I've heard of before.

Thanks for any advice, Richard.

Rolling road brake tests usually turn either all four or both wheels on the same axle. This should not excercise the diff at all. limited or ordinary.

This concern was never an issue in the 16 years my wife had a RWD MR2 Roadster with a factory Torsen LSD
