Yeah, I would think it could be harmful on pavement at
hi speeds or for extended periods. And I *suppose* if
you really got on the stupid pedal around a tight
corner there's the risk of snapping an axleshaft (or
is driveshaft the correct term here, or halfshaft?),
at least in theory.
Anyway, I wanna thank all who responded, I'm gonna
try to find 10 minutes to pull the back seat this
