   That's interesting.  I think you should try this test again, with the car
in gear, foot off clutch, diffs locked and diffs unlocked.  My cars are a
lot harder to lock up with the diffs locked; I can use more brake and get
shorter stopping distances because it's harder to lock up only one wheel.
Airlocking differentials are unbelievable.
