Any limited slip that actually limits slip WILL tear up the yard when you turn. Will still resist turning. Will still contribute to "tire wear". So adding a lock function to a LSD still doesn't get what you want, in that regard.This is not nonsense. It just not for the "hard core off roader" the hard core off roader doesn't care about tearing up the yard or slinging a little mud. I get that. This is a solution to the problems guys who use their utv for working around the farm or their properties and who drive it on streets. On an added note the way this rearend is designed and how strong it is, it wouldn't be all that hard to add an electronic locker to it. not that it would be needed in my opinion if you understand how a worm gear diff works. Dg rider this may not be for you thanks for looking and your feedback.
The only diff that won't do those things is an open diff (driven sanely, of course), and once you do that, you'll see just how much that locked rear end helped, even in "work" situations. You're completely under estimating the value of that spool in the back.
The ultimate solution? A diff that can operate completely open, or fully locked.
It's your time. You can waste it if you want.
