Default Worn Outdrives?

So what are the negative impacts of having notched outdrives? I know its sloppy but i mean is it as bad as we make it seem to be? You can still drive the car, but why is it so bad?

When you have notches in your outdrives, the drivetrain will apply a force to fix the suspension in a certain position when you are accelerating and braking. This will decrease the effectiveness of your setup and limit you performance.

Fundamentaly, all.worn parts have a negative impact on certain aspects of your cars.performance which is why so many people find a brand.new car faster (no wear).

If your car uses bone blades, as most do, they'll break more often, too.

It will limit the smooth movement of the suspension arm once the drive pin get into the notch, worse when taking a corner
