With either of those it will be as if your diff is locked and you put a lot of strain through you drivetrain. I will be running 3000 front and 7000 rear on my Mad Force. That will be enough to make them act like LSD's but still retain useful diff properties so you can still turn the damn thing!

Cheers,
David

lol yeah, but that's the feel i am going for, a locked rear diff. Do you think that the 300k will be to much for my drivetrain to handle? thanks, ken

Ought to be ok i would have thought, but just beware that it could lead to a bent driveshaft or the like, as you put a lot of extra torque through it with a 'locked' diff. Could be worth upgrading to stronger driveshafts, either titanium, or if you arent made of money hefty stainless steel ones.

Just my thoughts anyway

Cheers,
David

I used 50k in my X-Factor and that stuff is like peanut butter compared to the 3 I used in my buggy. You can always just use silicone grease too.
