EDIT: My confusion might lie in the fact that when you hit the button it says AUTO LSD ON,,i have to hit the button to get going lol
Not trying to come across as an ass, just trying to be clear.
I am not very familiar with the newer systems that have the auto LSD, but the VSC is what shuts off the throttle for me. I did the 2Lo mod, that tricks the computer into thinking that I am in 4Hi when I am really in 2Hi. It turns VSC off while leaving Trac on and I basically have an electronic limited slip in the rear. I have always just assumed Auto LSD is just Trac for 2wd.
I just leave the switch flipped all the time and VSC is turned off while leaving ABS and Trac engaged for driving around town. The reasoning is there have been two occasions where I am waiting at a stop sign and have a gap in traffic and I go to shoot it and spin a tire and VSC kicks in and shuts off the throttle and I am now coasting when I should be pinned... (Luckily the gaps I shoot aren't that small and I have been ok both times) After that I found the 2Lo mod and it worked like I theorized for me. Now when I shoot a gap in traffic, not only does my throttle no longer shut off on me, but when that 1 tire starts to spin, Trac will start tapping the brake on that wheel to transfer power to the other wheel and keep me moving instead of just roasting a tire in place.
That mod likely won't work for you since you aren't a 4wd and I don't know if it works on the newer rigs anyway, but hopefully you get the idea of how the systems work from that.
