It's about the same as welding the spider gears together, completely elimating the differential effect.

Had a big buick powered sandbuggy as a kid with welded spiders. The only way I could get it around the curved driveay at my dad's house was stand on it, lite em up, then slide into the garage. Then of course I'd spend the rest of the day scrubbing the black tire marks off the driveway. Did a U-turn in the street once that way, had to smoke 'em to position to get on the trailer. A cop saw me, almost lost my drivers license. 1965.

On any hard surface it's very hard to turn, but on dunes they work great. Probably mud too.
