2WD Traction

My traction sucks very bad. Could I make my stock differential into a locker (just like an actuall off road truck)? I was thinking drill a hole through it and stick some sort of plastic pin in the hole to lock it. I have sand paddles for it, and my front yard is all naturall springs, creating MUCH NASTY MUD. I thought hmm, OK! But there is not even ground and a front or rear tire finds a hole, I have to walk into the mud to give it traction.

Re: 2WD Traction

If it has a gear diff, I think that they do, just break out the soldering iron and solder it locked, similkar to a lincoln locker. I did it in my sledgehammer and the traction was great. THe only problem is that you will go through more rear sliders, so you should convert to MIP CVDs RCCA said that they were the beefiest driveshafts for the Stampede.

Re: 2WD Traction

I think the gears in the diff are plastic, but good idea. Its not even driving now, so It just sits in my room on a table w/ parts allover near it. OH WELL.

Re: 2WD Traction

well, the biggest thing i have to give to MIP is they have great customer service. i got their CVDs yes the "strongest available" and have twisted off 2 so far!! but they always send me new ones no questions asked! i cant understand why ive got so much power. the only engine mods i have are k&n filter and MIP tuned pipe exhaust. i only run 10% nitro too cause i wanted my engine to last as long as i could and i dont race it
