Sorry i ment how dangerous is this to drive


If they load while you trying to make a turn it can force you to go straight if the road is even a slightly bit wet, but After the limited slip was redesigned I no longer see this happen but there is a chance even if very small. Now if he is talking about the pinions over running then that can cause a differential to detonate the gears internally and that can be dangerous.
