A spool or diff locker replaces a differential with a solid immovable unit. Wherever this is employed, there will be no differential effect. Could be beneficial in the front for smooth tracks, could be beneficial in the rear for very loose surfaces and could be useful in the center if equal drive all round is desirable.

The factory losi setup is a center differentail. It has side gears and spider gears in side. It is more of an All Wheel Drive steup than a 4wd. If the front end comes off the ground the front tires will spin and the rear will get no power. Kind of like when a left or right tire comes off the ground with a 2wd car. The diff locker replaces all that makes it so the front and rear tires both get power equally no matter if the font or rear comes off the ground or not. It is more of a true 4wd setup. Kind of like most 1/8 scale monster trucks.
