    what good does a diff lock up do?

    is it worth going from diffs to diff lock up?

    locked diffs force even split power between the 2 wheels on a given axle. this prevents one wheel getting all the power then it slips which is the case in an 'open' differential.

    if you want mad traction then yes its worth it.

    spool

    I race and bash with my rear diff locked up. I run MIP cvd's and have had no problems. Like morganm said....mad traction and 2nd gear donuts like you wouldn't believe. I say go for it!!
