    dd od?

    if you weld your diffs you cant steer without the tires messin up; the inside wheel moves slower than the outside. it wouldnt be a limited slip, but more of a no-slip differential; like the detroit locker. even drag ff cars dont weld their diffs, only rwd cars.

    have you ever seen an old muscle car take a corner that has a welded differential. you can't go over 10mph and it hopes like a bitch. try backing into a parking space. So welding you diff. for a front wheel drive could only be at least 10 times worse.
