Can lead to broken axles and needs a different driving technique and may not be legal IF driven on public roads.

A welded diff is not suitable for road use at all, pretty much only for drifting, the skipping and skittish handling would drive you nuts, a LSD or torsion diff is the way to go for a road car.
