Re: Locking rear diff Q

Bluegrass Redneck previously said:
Why would I need the ATRAC if I'm driving a manual tranny with a rear locker engaged at all times? Is the ATRAC only for the front diffs?
You don't want to drive around with the rear locker on all the time.

ATrac works both the front and rear wheels, and does a pretty good job.. transfering power to the wheel that need it.. in a real bad sit you can lock the rear locker for some more traction, but it disables the front ATRAC (unless you mod it) With the rear locker locked it can cause the vehical to slip sideways, and turning on any hard surface is very hard the rear, so you only want to use it when you realy need it, let ATRAC do everything else. So far I realy havn't had to use the rear locker at all, the ATRAC works that good.
