Ford only offers a standard open diff. Quaife makes a Torsen-style diff (technically not a limited slip) which is the hot ticket for a front-driver, but it's $1000 + installation.

I got the base model 5-door SVTF, so I can't answer the traction control questions.

The SVTF does very well in auto-X, even bone stock, at least from everything I've heard. I'll have to try it early next year.

No SVTF in '05. '04 will be the last year for it.
