I literally could not tell it was in there on pavement use while turning. It caused zero issues turning in slippery conditions and when I was in the soup, both front tires were always doing their job. If I ever stop web wheeling and build another off road rig, I will install another Detroit unit in the front.

I've seen pictures of the metro! thanks for the advice. I will look into a Detroit. I figured one unlocked hub would cause pulling big time but thought maybe it would be bearable. Wanted to go cheap but sometimes just have to bite the bullet and spend the cash.
