I certainly don't recommend it, nor is it good for the car's mechanicals, but I've driven my car with a spool in it on the street before. Sure she understeers like a pickup truck, but in the dry it certainly hasn't provided a "threatening" or unsafe situation. NO, I wouldn't have lent the keys to my wife or mother, but then again.....that wasn't the only characteristic of the car that might have prevented that.

So, no its not optimal and may require some backing off to 8/10 rather than 9/10's in corners, but if used mostly for track I'd set it up mostly for track and make the sacrifice on the street. Just my thoughts.
