Default NTC3 Solid Axle ?

What are some of the advantages and/or disadvantages of using a solid axle?To be honest Im not quite sure what it is.Someone told me to use it instead of a front one-way because you get one-way benefits,but you still have brakes.Any comments on that?

The disadvantage is that off power steering suffers with a front solid axle. Some setup alterations would be needed to cure the lack of off power steering. On power steering will be about the same as having a oneway.

Dont run one if you like to hit the boards. One tap & the gear is toast
