Re: Breaking in: new gears & locker
With a Detroit Locker in the rear you get a pull to the right when you give it gass and a bigger pull to the left when you let off the gass fast ( or vice versa, I'm used to it and don't think about it that much ). It isn't as noticable with a auto as with a manual tranny, but it is still there. It takes a little to get used to it. Just don't let the gas off fast and you won't notice it much.
Another problem with a locker on ice is that it can be harder to turn since both rear wheels are pushing the same. On ice or in slippery mud the front tire can just skip or slide when turned. It's like on the 3 wheel ATCs, you turn the front forks and it keeps going straight, you have to lean to get some weight off a rear wheel to get it to turn.
