Locker Question

I was wondering if an auto-locker like an Aussie would do well on a twisty mountain trail? I know that turning is severely limited when it is locked and since it is an auto I would not be able to unlock it. I like to do some crawling but I also like to run these type of trails. I know that you can let off the gas and it will unlock the drive but some of the trails not only make 160 degree turns but they also contain a 35 to 40 degree incline which will make letting off the gas out of the question.

I have been searching the forums but I have not found a definitive answer for this specific locker question.

It is my understanding that the Aussie will allow either wheel to turn faster than the driveline (outside wheel in a turn) but will allow neither wheel to turn slower than the driveline is driving them. (even if it is in the air) I read this information on Aussie's website.
