Default Locked front axle

I have seen in some shops a locked front axle as an option part.
Has anybody tried this? Lap time gained?
4WD braking and maybe more on throttle steering should be on the positive side. Negative side: less turn in speed/ turn in understeer

Technically that would be illegal. 4 wheel brakes are not allowed.

Front wheel braking is allowed! It is not allowed to have independent brakes for the front wheels, but blocking the one-way´s and braking through the transmission is legal...

You are correct, it has changed somewhere along the line. It used to just say "No 4 wheel brakes". I think I would prefer a diff over a spool but I still think our current drive train set up is best for most tracks.

I think the off power turn-in would be crap; due to both axiles being locked. IMO

I got an Xray NT1 receiver case, turned the MRX4X bracket (the one that you normally stick the receiver to) back to front, and bolted the NT1 receiver case to it. Also, I had to cut off part of the aerial mount. The result is virtually no visible wires at all, looks very clean, and no need to use any double sided tape. I took a photo, but I don't have the necessary software to reduce it down to the small kb size limit for jpeg images on RCTech.
