Default solid front axle???

What are the main benefits of a solid front end as opposed to a one-way or ball diff?

oneway gives the car alot more turn-in, solid axle is like a oneway out of corners but you get a little less turn-in but you can use the brakes without spinning out.

Solid front axle gives you great on power steering!!! Just like a front one way but with 4 wheel braking

A solid front axle pushes a little bit during mid turn, while a front one way does not.

With a regular diff, steering is easy but the on power steering is non existent.

If you are using a solid front axle--avoid hitting the curb/bariers it will bend your cvd's or break parts.

But, it takes time getting use to it. Lots of guys use it as a Tunning option but not as a hop up.

if wide open flowing tracks-solid front or one way
tight-difs in front

STill thatis debatable but again, driver preference and skill.

Peace and happy racing!

yup.

that's it in brief. but the turn in, especially off power, is worse than a diff. that's the compromise in order to still get 4 wheel braking.
