Winters-style closed-tube with a spool on the ring gear. Locked!

ThanksOn Dirt most run a locker/spool. I don't know anyone whose run a Diff since the leaf car days. I think these newer, "On the Hook" cars move too much cross for the diff to consistantly handle, not to mention the extreme axle steer. If you run your car flat you might could use a diff, but if you hike up, forget it, just use a spool.
