Re: Mini spools?
I personally wouldn't run a spool if you do any amount of street driving. It wears the hell out of the tires and is real harsh on the driveline. More predictable than a locker? That's a toss-up. I've never had a question of whether or not my Lock-Right is working, nor have I seen a Detroit not work (unless it was broken!)
Two hours to swap it out? Do you know that the spool takes the place of your carrier, and therefore would require that you swap the ring gear over (or have a spare open carrier set up), then recheck the gear pattern? [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]
Yes, you may be able to buy a spool for $90 or weld it for the cost of wire and argon, but I'd save for a lunchbox locker.
