A solid axle could absorb (or if you prefer, accommodate) the jerk of
engagement by torquing and thus flexing the entire axle, diff, and
suspension w.r.t. the frame. An IRS would transfer all that dynamic
force to the axles by way of the diff gearing. Yeah, it might be
harder on the drivetrain! On the other hand, the IRS car wouldn't
twitch the rear over to one side. I suppose one doesn't normally
switch OD on or off while in a turn though...
