Would there by much disadvantage in running a diff up the front? I gather there would be less damage from crashes, and alot easier on the drive train, but what I want to ask is.........
how does a diff handle on asphalt compared to spool? More turn in? Slightly less forward traction?
a locked up front diff would act like a spool, only have abit more 'give', true?
What car do you have? some people build slipper spools for this reason, basically a diff with sandpaper instead of diff balls, it will give under a big hit.
Typically a diff is slower out of the corner, but if your car is a little tail happy it actually calms it down.
