Uh... No. Relative/Slip Angle to a locker is NOT a variable. A locker
interprets slip as a constant, UNTIL you lift a wheel. There is the
difference dave. Only if you lift a wheel or assume different cf wheel to
wheel can you make the above statement. A locker does NOT interpret slip
angle as a Tshift.
As a locker goes to a large slip angle, you have either Trg reduced OR a
reduction in the front driveshaft speed. Why? Because a locked locker is NOT
a differential, by definition. So a locker sees slip as absolute traction,
and should, since it doesn't "re-distribute" torque. So a locker does
"better" with slip, it doesn't do better in a straight line.
