Default I used to think front overdrive was kind of gimmiky

After seeing this thing climb, I'm sold. Now I'm looking at all of my other trucks wondering how much it's going to cost to overdrive the fronts in them all.

If you climb more than trail, it’s almost a must. Even for trailing 10-12% doesn’t bother me.


@durok, so close! Excited for you to get your new rig.

The Enduro strictly speaking uses underdrive, rather than over drive. They seem to have went with the overdrive marketing though as more people relate to that.

I would under drive your rigs, rather than over drive them when possible.
Under drive gears are a little stronger and heavier.
