I personally have one in my cuda and I love it!!!! I heard all the horror stories and I decided that I would add one in my car due to the cost of a locker assembly!!! The only problem that I have noticed id that when you turn a sharp corner you will hear one of the tires slipping. Now I dont drive my car everyday but I do drive it about 2 to 3 times a week. one thing to think about is tores and axel diameter. If you are running a cheeter slick or something you will bind up the rear and will probably tear you the axels. But as a genral rule there is enouh dirt and debris in most corners that you will get the wheel slippage to keep you from tearing up anything. one thing I would warn you about is always slow way down before you take a real sharp corner. Have fun and make it go fast. one thing I love about it is. It smells better when you can burn one tire down but it smells better when you can do it to two. Cudaman
