Either aluminum, welded some how, diff locker grease, silicone chaulk stuffed in there for a true lock, etc etc etc. There are many ways to lock up the front differential or rear for that matter.
Locking has it advantages and disadvantages. IMHO for the new, rookie driver, diff locking isn't something they should be getting into on the TT-01. I feel it's more of something for an advanced seasoned controller as it produces a considerable amount of understeer amoung other things. The only advantage is late breaking which is really not to much of an advantage since most times your only pressing the brake a fraction of a second after the driver behind you, not enough to make any real difference on the track and exit control since both wheels are pulling at the same time it makes getting out of the corner better.
Tire wear will be come a great issue, setup and maintain of suspension will be a task getting it to the sweet spot to try and remove most of that understeer you created etc. Again, I would recommend it for any seasoned driver, but def not for a rookie or beginner.
This of course is just my humble .02 cents since I too spooled my front one my tt-01 the day after I got into RC cars and I fought it for months before the local track legend had me swap it back out to stock, make some suspension adjustments and presto, track times as well as skill improved 10 fold for corner management. Again, just my .02 cents from one rookie to another.
