Default 2WD Warhead

Well I smashed my front bulkhead again, minor crash. While repairing it I lost my front drive shaft. So the warhead being so unpopular, none around here carries parts. I reall want to drive today, 1st day it hasnt been pouring rain. Will it damage the warhead to drive without the front drive shaft so I only have RWD?

I mean it will suck not to have 4WD but it will suck more not to drive, but suck the most if it just brakes more parts...

Mekong,

I myself being a Warhead owner, I have found it absolutely necessary to always look for the front drive shaft after the bulkhead decides to let loose. I have made this mistake twice picking up the truck and heading home just to leave the drive shaft in the vincinity of the crash.

Truck should run fine without the front shaft for the time being. Just have to do some tweaking on the suspension to get the traction you want.

I purposely took the front shaft out to see if I could get some more speed and it worked fine...also my wimpy 4.4 stock Supertigre will pull the front tires off the ground...not much! I run my WH on pavement so 4wd is`nt a big deal.

So I tried it 2WD, and now I cant get the darn thing to idle, I start it at 1/4 throttle and let it warm for 30 sec and then take of the plug, wait, then put it and idle, and dead. Any suggestions?
