Thanks crawlinmaxx. I might have to go to the dark side of clods though...[X(] Just cuz they're cheaper than a TXT.[:@] Maybe I'll get one & put a Maxx tranny & revo shafts in it just to piss the clod guys off!!

Excellent tutorial on locking diffs.

Make sure you lock your axles up & get rid of the independent suspension.
