    Stock 16/90 is actually good for bashing....unless you bash at 30+ mph. You lose your low end torque with the high gearing and most bashing is torque related for jumps and acceleration.

    Agree with Panther. Only good time to use a locker in my opinion is in a drag car on a PREPPED surface...perfectly flat. Turning radius decreases also.
