dont know how the CV's will cope with it , but the point is that the V8 supercars have cv's & locked diffs so i cant see it really being to much of a prob for ya .
but you will never know if you dont try it

I believe that the V8 super cars run a live axle, hence no CV's. I dont think they would last, but hey you never know if you don't try.

Live axle doesn't always mean no CVs :D

Are we talking about a LOCKED diff or one of those "lock-rite/lokka" things that are used by 4wds and can be had for BWs?
A locked diff, mini or full spool would be pretty harsh on the IRS diff I'd have thought, I've known of a few AU IRS LS diffs to go kaboom behind stock cars.
A lokka or lock-rite would be alot less harsh, but they aren't used that often by Ford guys, they seem to be popular with a few of the calaisturbo guys, only negative they seem to mention is they can be noisy (clicking) while turning.
I'm thinking of getting one for myself.

hmm, getting camber on a solid axle does seem interesting...

I wonder if you can get stronger CV's to throw into the IRS?

Because that has nothing to do with a locked diff?

There are many kinds of locked diffs, most japanese cars run a mechanical diff which locks when power is put through the diff and unlocks when power is taken off the diff.

Yep there is a lot of difference between LSD and Locked

As the name says an LSD is a limited slip diff, you will find with these that the wheels can still spin at different speeds up to a point where as a locked diff is exactly that locked, both wheels turn at the same speed no matter what.

Differences in driving is a locked diff with tend to throw you around the corner and usually putting you sideways and an LSD will drive you around a corner.
