Re: welding the dif? (rockit)
you CAN turn with a welded diff, just you should be ON throttle to turn.
they work GREAT in the loose stuff http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
With a locked diff, it will not spin the inside tyre no matter what the cirumstance, which rules. the torque is also a static 50/50 split, also a bonus. because of this the tyre with the most weight on it due to weight transfer has the most "pull" if you will. with the outside tyre weighted more the locked diff actually HELPS the car turn better beleive it or not. it helps rotate it through the corner. *only applies when you are ON the gas*
if you're off the gas..kiss turning goodbye
you should be done braking BEFORE starting the turn in. this is not only the fastest/proper way but the ONLY way to get yourself through a corner quickly and properly with a welded diff. with a LSD you can be off the gas and still turning, same with an open, so it doesn't emphasise the proper techinique as much as a welded diff does. besides, a welded diff if done the RIGHT way is super super strong. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
that's all outta me for now.
