My opinion. The novelty wears off pretty quick. Hard on the diff and axles . Much better options around these days True Tracs are awesome on the street

I ran a spool in my Bronco for a little while and couldn't stand it.

I have friends that run them and don't seem to mind them but i'll stay with a locker

Mini spools are meant for low dough dirt track cars. In a street car they're a bomb waiting to go off

On the street a mini-spool it's self isn't a bomb waiting to go off. But it can often cause the single-track it's installed in, and also stock axles, to turn into shrapnel from the turning/side loading forces.

In a street application a mini-spool is better than welded spider gears, but only slightly.
