Default Built your own tracked vehicle?

I am seriously looking at trying to build my own sno cat type two tracked snow machine.
I would be using an automotive rear axle with a cutting brake type steering mechanisim because a cletrac or neutral turn type differential doesn't seem like it's in the budget right now.
My big question is, do you think that the open diff car axle will have too much bump steer or wander when driving in rough or off camber terrain?
Any suggestions or experience would be greatly appreciated thanks.
