    I have the spool, and it drags the tires around turns. The axles are linked to each other. The true trac will have clutches and let the car turn nicer. It will cost you more.

    Do not go with a full spool for a street driven car. It will make the car miserable in regular driving conditions, you'll always have one tire squealing/dragging around turns, and you'll also go through tires like crazy.

    Go with a regular limited slip/locker like the Tru Trac unless its a track only car that will only be going in a straight line.
