Having a spool is like welding up your spiders.


If you know what a locker is, a spool is similar in that it provides power to both wheels, but it does not allow for differentiation between the two, like when you're turning.

Welding the spiders will change the metalurgy(Sp?) of the gears and they WILL break leaving ya stranded some where . I would not recommend it.
