As a slide sideways through an intersection...

I thought to myself, what is ratio to front and rear if DON'T have the diff locked?

The looks on other people's faces were priceless!

I am sure mine looked the same.

"what is ratio to front and rear if DON'T have the diff locked"

Open which means if one wheel can spin you don't go anywhere. That being said, it is the safest way to travel IMHO until you are really in it bad.

I say the ratio of an axle traveling in a perpendicular direction to the tread of the tire has a ratio of one to infinity, because the next object you may encounter may be the dark blue infinity that you are hurtling towards.

All is well that ends well.

One of the best advantages of a manual locking center diff.

I am assuming that you are talking about locking the transfercase... not the diffs.

40% to the front
60% to the rear

locked:

50/50

Only under ideal conditions. His was probably all over the place while sliding through the intersection.
