Re: Spool...vs.....Locker???

Spool doesn't release (unload or pop) never no how. If it does then you look for the broken parts. A spool
is like a Lincoln locker without the welding

Re: Spool...vs.....Locker???

A locker allows for positive forward or reverse traction and allows the wheels to disenguage themselves (by going faster than the other one to put it simply) therefore going click click and hopefully putting less wear on stuffs..
If you apply power the wheels turn w/a locker no mater what (unless it's broken), if a tire goes faster than the other tire (turning l/r), it'll disenguage itself from the differential power system. A spool turns the wheels @ the same speed, nothing else, no this, that, the same, that's all!
